****Sadly, this mix has been discontinued and deserves a moment of silence. I am so sad ********
Right here you have a little slice or heaven. Or it could be a big slice, depending on how hungry you are. This gluten-free angel food cake mix is so simple to make and tastes even better than the “real” thing. Yes, it is that good!!
The 16 ounce mix ($4.89) makes one regular sized angel food cake, and I would guess enough to feed at least 8 people. To prepare, all you add is gluten free vanilla and warm water. Now, here’s the tricky part. You need to mix this in a sturdy stand mixer- don’t even attempt to do so with a hand mixer. You mix it on high for TEN MINUTES ( yes, you read that correctly.) I used my kitchen-aid mixer and discovered that for the first 6-7 minutes I had to drape a towel over the mixer because the cake mixture splattered everywhere. I was able to remove the towel when the mixture thickened up. ( of course, be cautious if you do this so the towel doesn’t get caught in the beaters). I learned this the hard way- the fist time I made this mix, it splattered everywhere, and when the splatters dried, the cake mix droplets were like cement. I had to use a razor blade to remove them from the mixer, counters, and cabinets. However, the work is worth it. At the end of the 10 minutes, you spoon the fluffy cloud-like mixture into the pan and then bake for 35 minutes.
Taste wise, this cake is amazing. It is light, fluffy and slightly sweet and moist. You would never guess this was gluten-free! Every person- even my gluten-consuming friends and family have proclaimed this to be the best angel food cake they have ever tasted. I have to agree. This is one mix that is worth every penny and every bite.
Pros: amazing taste and texture, fat free
Cons: Mix prep can be very messy
Rating: 5 stars!!
