Betty Crocker Gluten Free Yellow Cake Box Mix Review

I had a craving for cake and when that happens I have to bake. Seeing as I’m too lazy to mix my own gluten free flour I’m on the search for a great box mix. (Click to enlarge)

Here are the ingredients:
Yellow Cake: Rice Flour, Potato Starch, Sugar, Potato Starch, Leavening (baking soda, sodium acid pyrophosphate, monocalcium phosphate), Xanthan Gum, Salt.

Betty Crocker has a few gluten free cake mixes as well as a brownie mix. To get these mixes I have to cross the border and that usually means a Buffalo trip. I don’t really mind as I am fond of Americans and I would move to the US in a heartbeat. The funny thing about the mixes, they’re made in Ontario and only sold in the US, come on General Mills, really.

I followed the directions on the box, but I added apple sauce instead of eggs. The cake came out so fluffy and soft. This mix does not contain soy, but there is a warning that it might.

Here’s what it looked like: aireater air eater, gluten free, vegan aireater air eater, gluten free, vegan

I must say I enjoyed this cake and would recommend it to anyone in a pinch. It probably would make a great base to a pineapple upside down cake.

Happy eating!
