GF/CF Friday Product Review: Pamela’s Chocolate Cake Mix

Every Friday, I will review a Gluten Free/Casein Free (GF/CF) product from the perspective of my 6-year-old, Edward, who has been on the GF/CF diet for 6 months.

(HelloKittieMama from the BonBonGazette will also be posting reviews on her site, so please check her out! )

I planned to make two cakes for my brother’s birthday–one GF/CF and one Betty Crocker.  I prepared this Pamela’s Chocolate Cake Mix first.  It was as easy as Betty Crocker–I just added eggs, water and oil.  Since I was a tad concerned about dryness, I decided to make one large bundt cake.  I just iced it with a glaze made with powdered sugar and water.

This easily came out of the bundt pan, and when I tasted the edges, I decided this was so spectacular I did not need to waste my time on Betty Crocker.  The cake was smooth and moist with a perfect chocolate flavor.  I am seriously picky, but even I would not have known this was GF/CF.

I did not announce that the cake was GF/CF, but everyone raved about it and asked for as second piece.  I waited until the next day to tell my brother and his girlfriend that the cake was gluten-free.  They had a difficult time believing me!

Edward absolutely adored this cake.  His take?  “This is the best cake I have ever had!  Thank you for making it.  Now, can you make another one?”  (That’s the only negative.  Now every day he begs for me to make another cake.)

I believe this would be the perfect cake for school birthday cupcakes!  I am so relieved to find a cake mix that I can use for everyone.

Watch out Betty Crocker!  Pamela’s on the move!

WE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this cake mix!!!

I have served it at so many birthdays and everyone eats it – people don’t even know it is “on the diet”. A friend of mine flipped out when she saw my son eating this at my daughter’s birthday party because she thought for sure he had gotten into something he couldn’t have!!!!

Love love love it. Glad to read your family liked it too!

How awesome! I had no idea that there were so many GFCF products out there, and I have to admit, when I saw that you were going to be testing a cake mix, I immediately thought of cardboard. What a pleasant surprise, though. 🙂 Glad you’ve found something new for your family to enjoy!

Sounds yummy! Back when my son would eat cake, I made GFCF Cupcakes for a birthday and his cousins asked for something else to eat. 🙁

[…] limpish thumb and the tolerant face.  It’s not the gleeful joy we’ve seen before with chocolate cake.  Still, it’s jiggly, it’s sweet, and I have found that other children will eat it.  […]
