Products We Love: Betty Crocker Gluten Free + Dairy Free Cake Mix

11:52 AM


Five years ago, baking gluten free meant making everything from scratch, always. Today brands are making our lives a lot easier, launching a lot of standard products in boxed conveniences. As of Friday, the FDA decided to show some love to us Celiacs by regulating all products labeled "Gluten Free," ensuring they have less than 20 parts per million of gluten. (Missed that? Read about it here!)

Going forward, we'll be featuring a number of allergy friendly products that we love. These are unbiased reviews—we aren't receiving compensation, we just love this stuff. 

Like many of people around us, Tanya and I grew up with Betty Crocker. Now that Betty's playing in the Gluten Free market, we can continue loving her and using her like we used to. Except that, unlike her conventional boxed cake mixes, these are good. I mean, really good. Easy and delicious—no one will ever know those cupcakes you whipped up came from a box. 

Betty Crocker Gluten Free Cake Mix is also dairy free and comes in two flavors: "yellow" and "devil's food." Each box makes one 8x8, 9x9, 8" or 9" cake, or 12 cupcakes (so if you want a two-tiered cake, you'll need two boxes). The ingredients are:

"Yellow": Rice Flour, Sugar, Potato Starch, Baking Soda, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Monocalcium Phosphate, Xanthan Gum, Salt.

"Devil's Food": Sugar, Rice Flour, Potato Starch, Cocoa Process with Alkali, Tapioca Starch, Baking Soda, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Monocalcium Phosphate, Salt, Guar Gum, Soy Flour.


To make these vegan, we use Earth Balance Soy Free butter alternative and Ener-g Egg Replacer. Do not overbake—our 8" cakes barely took the time listed on the box. In our experience, the yellow bakes for a slightly shorter time and overbakes most easily; regardless, the chocolate seems to be more moist. We turned them into an amazing oreo cake. Want the recipe? You're in luck—we've posted it here.

Have you tried Betty Crocker Gluten Free products before? We'd love to hear your favorites!
