It might seem as though I am baking a bunch. And, I am. Being wheat-free/gluten-free means a lot of home-baked goodies since almost everything available commercially has some sort of wheat flour or some derivative of wheat in it.
But, truth be told, there are times when I just don’t feel like baking from scratch. If only there was some sort of solution for that…
Oh, wait, there is: PACKAGED CAKE MIX.
There is possibly no faster and easier method to “make” a “homemade” cake than to pop a mix out of the bag or box, and simply add the few ingredients that the directions call for. Luckily, there are some fabulous new gluten-free (and thus, wheat-free) mixes on the market.
My new favorite, and the absolute easiest one I have made to date, has got to be the new PREMIUM CHOCOLATE CAKE MIX from Mehl’s Flour Company. By adding just water, oil, and vanilla extract, you’ve got yourself a beautifully moist and delicious chocolate cake in about 25 minutes. (Which, by-the-way, I believe the Mehl Family would have no problem with you calling “homemade!”) Besides being Certified Gluten-Free to less than 10ppm —the best standard in the industry— the real difference maker is that this cake quite literally takes the cake when it comes to tasting like it’s “regular” non-gluten-free box mix cousins. (You know, the kind of box cakes you used to eat before you gave up the wheat and gluten!)
There’s a reason their customers question the Mehl family as to whether their baked goodies are really gluten free: They truly taste as if they aren’t. (And, that, of course, is a good thing!) You can rest assured, though, that this family knows the importance of high-quality and high-integrity in manufacturing their gluten free flour and mixes. In fact, this Celiac family-turned- Certified Gluten Free innovators take great pride in their product’s safety, taste, and price-point.
Chocolate cake lovers can find Mehl’s Gluten Free Flour and Mixes online or in several retail outlets. You can also sign up for their newsletter at: http://mehlsflour.com/newsletter-signup/.
This is like a bit of joy in a box. This package is stuffed with Mehl’s Flour Company

and of course Chocolate Cake Mix. Yum!
Now, if only the Mehl Family made some gluten-free red vines licorice…
