Cake Mix

Mix ahead for a quick mix that makes four Vanilla or Chocolate cakes.

I make a batch of the “basic mix” and store it in pint jars in my pantry. Dump a mix in a bowl and *poof* you have cake in a flash. Just like Betty Crocker, only no wheat or other poisons.

Basic Mix:  Mix this and store for quick cakes.

  • 5 1/4 C gluten free flour mixture (I used potato starch, rice flour and tapioca starch)
  • 2 +2/3 C sugar
  • 8 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp soda
  • 4 tsp xanthan gum
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 T egg replacer powder
  • 1 T unflavored gelatin powder

To make a vanilla cake:

  • 2 C of the basic mix (listed above)
  • 2 eggs (replaced with flax meal + hot water)
  • 2 T oil
  • 3 T pear sauce (1 container of baby pears)
  • 1/2 C rice or hemp milk

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes in an 8 x 8 pan.

To make a chocolate cake:

  • 2 C of the basic mix (listed above)
  • 3 T cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs  (replaced with flax meal +hot water)
  • 2 T oil
  • 3 T pear sauce
  • 1/2 water, or coca-cola

Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes in 8 x 8 pan.
