It’s Time for the May Give-Away! Gluten Free Pantry Angel Food Cake Mix

Posted on | May 3, 2009 | 31 Comments

Yes, it is true, In my possession I have a Gluten Free Pantry Angel Food cake mix, and I am crazy enough to offer it up for the free product give-away this month!

This mix has been discontinued, which has many of us seriously upset because it is so light and tasty!  When I heard the rumor it would be discontinued, I promptly ordered a case for my extended family and I to share, because gluten free or not, EVERYONE I know that has tried this mix at my house has raved over how good it is. And now I happen to have an extra. It is your lucky day!

Now, this mix is incredible, but please know that for best results it needs to be mixed in a stand mixer since it takes anywhere from 10-20 minutes of mixing to get it ready to bake.  (Please read my review HERE for more information.)

Seriously, this mix is totally tasty and since it is discontinued, it  may be your last chance to score this mix for your own “Gluten Free Pantry!”

    We’ve tested plenty of GF cakes and pies. By far my fave are the pan bars (like a spice cake) from 123 gluten free. Awesome!

    Also, if you’re still wanting a really good GF angel food cake mix, they make a pretty good one at a place called Twisted Bakery in Dickinson, ND. You can visit and order on their website: It’s $9, but it is well worth it. We can actually get it frozen since we’re fairly close and our grocery store started carrying their products.

    My favorite mix is Pamela’s Chocolate Brownie Mix. I have experimented with what ingredients to add to make brownies, since I am Diabetic I am very careful to add a lot of sugar/fat content. If you simply add a can of Diet Coke to the mix and bake at the prescribed temperature, they come out as luscious brownies with the melted chocolate chips inside!!

    This is one of the best cakes that I have found since being diagnosed as a Celiac. I usually use the liquid egg whites, found in the grocery aisle with eggs, for the cake. It is light and very tasty. I use Bette Hagman’s Featherlight Mix to make the cake. If you haven’t tried this one, it is a winner.

    I have not eaten Gluten Free Pantry Angel Food cake mix before and I would a chance to be able to eat the cake mix, even though is it being discontinued I’ll be sure to make it last if I am the winner.

    I am sensitive to gluten but I do not have celiac so I have had a hard time finding an angel food cake mix that is tasty, and gluten free.

    I’ve only been brave enough to try baking on my own a few times, but this Coconut Cake recipe from is definitely my favorite so far! My gluten eating friends were skeptical at first but have decided they’ll let me make it for them again.

    My favorite mix is Sof’ella Organic Gluten Free Chocolate Cake. A recipe with this mix can be found on my site:

    I have never had Gluten Free Pantry Angel Food Cake Mix before but I have been eying it for a while. I am sad to know that it will no longer be available. It is sad to see products that are gluten free leaving store shelves. Gluten Free Pantry makes amazing products.

    I would love to try this. I am pretty new to the gluten-free diet and Angel Food Cake is a favorite.

    I have not tried a lot of cake mixes, but I did try a chocolate GF cake mix from Cherrybrook Kitchen that I loved!

    Right now my favorite cake is a lot of work and I haven’t had time to make it in awhile since I’m going to school and working full time. But it is a Flourless Chocolate Walnut Cake.

    It is made of eggs, butter, apricot jam, sugar, semisweet chocolate, and ground walnuts. It is very tasty and even works when I substitute almonds for the walnuts. It tastes somewhat like the brownie dessert from Outback Steakhouse. It takes a couple hours to make from start to finish so I only make it for special occasions.

    I really miss Angel Food Cake. My great-grandma always made angel food cake with berries for dessert when she took care of me when I was younger. I really hope I get a chance to try this cake. Too bad they discontinued it, I wonder what it would take to get it back in production.

    My favorite GF mix to date is Gluten Free Pantry’s Chocolate Truffle Brownie Mix.
    I’ve served it to lots of people, many who eat gluten, and they all love it, and so do I!

    Angel food cake has always been my favorite – I used to beg my grandma to make it all the time. She would make a orange glaze for it..mmmmm…

    I am very upset to hear that they have discontinued this mix! After being diagnosed, I bought this mix and then asked for a Kitchen Aid mixer to make it!

    I was considering have this as my wedding cake, but looks like i’ll have to stick with the original plan of chex treats made with home made marshmallows =P

    For valentines day I made a cake with Whole Foods 365 Gluten Free White Cake Mix…it was delicious…I put Gluten Free Dreams Vanilla Frosting on top and dyed it pink! So cute in the shape of a heart! I LOVE TO BAKE! Would love a chance to try out the GFP Angel Food Cake before it’s all gone!

    The best recipe I have found is this one–I have made three birthday cakes and cupcakes from this recipe in the last month!! It is FAST, EASY, and DELICIOUS!! At my daughter’s birthday party today, a guest asked me if I made special cupcakes for my daughter (celiac) and regular for everyone else—I winked and told her they were ALL “special”!! She couldn’t believe they were GF!! :-)

    Growing up angel food cake was always my birthday favorite!! Seven years ago my son and I were diagnosed as Celiacs. When we found GF Pantry’s angel food mix we were so excited. It has become our family favorite and my son’s birthday cake choice. We are truly sad to see it go. My son asked what are we going to do now? Do you know an equivalent Gf angel food cake recipe?

    I love the GFP Angel food Cake Mix! That is so sad that they are discontinuing it. I wonder why.

    Anyway my favorite cake is actually a cake that I make and I use it for a base for most birthday cakes. It is a butter cake and is made with butter, sugar, vanilla, almond flour, baking soda and powder, Beth’s all purpose mix, potato starch, eggs, and egg replacer. It is sooo good! And the cake is easily freezable (that came in easy this past Easter because I had three birthday’s I had to make cakes for!) I also have been tinkering with variations of it like chocolate, chocolate chip, butterscotch and toffee.
    And the best part is is that no one knows that it is GF!

    Namaste Chocolate Cake Mix is our favorite. It works great in cupcakes, round cakes, sheet cake, and bundt cake. It also make 2 round pans unlike many gf mixes that only make 1.

    my favorite cake mix is pamelas chocolate cake mix. it is so similar to the taste of my moms old chocolate mayonaise cake. everyone i know who has tried it (gluten eaters included) has loved it because it is so rich and dark.

    but i had heard about this angle food cake mix, so even though its discontinued id love to try it.

    My favorite cake mix? The white cake mix from Whole Foods’ 365 brand. While on its own it’s somewhat bland, I made it with a bit of cinnamon, ginger, cloves, allspice, and nutmeg and ended up with a moist, springy, delicious spice cake that I had trouble keeping away from my non-GF friends.

    YUM… I never was able to taste this but I would LOOOOVE TO.

    I hope they don’t discontinue this product because I was planning on making a cake my mother always made for birthdays:

    Cut the top off of the angel food cake and remove the inside breaking into small pieces.

    Mix a large package of strawberry jello using frozen sweetened strawberries for the cold water. Let chill till slightly thickened. Mix with small tub cool whip and cake pieces. Fill the cake. Replace the top and frost with more cool whip. Refrigerate overnight. Enjoy!!!

    I Love this website!!!!!

    I can’t believe you have a box of the Gluten-Free Pantry angel food cake mix and you’re giving it away! I am really trying to cross my swollen fingers for this one.

    This angel food cake with some of my fresh made Ponchatoula strawberry preserves spooned over top was one of my early summer treats that I am longing for.

    My other cake love is for Namaste’s spice cake mix, but made as a carrot cake. I also always add some flax and whatever dried fruits and nuts I have on hand; apples, pineapple, and walnuts are my favorite mix-ins.

    Oh, and then there’s chocolate. If I need my chocolate fix, you can’t beat Pamela’s chocolate cake mix for some really familiar, soft, light “real” chocolate cake texture and taste. I just bump it up by either substituting espresso for some of the liquid in the recipe or just adding some orange zest and using o.j. for some of the liquid. When I am feeling especially creative, I make my Aztec Chocolate Cake by adding 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. cayenne, 2 T. honey and 1/2 c. finely ground almonds.

    I really like Pamela’s yellow cake mix. I usually top it with a ready made buttercream frosting. (make sure to check the label, not all ready made frostings are gluten-free)

    I am a newbie so I don’t have a recipe to share. Just wanted to say I am enjoying your site tremendously.

    Headed out to the store to see if I can find this mix, or any of the other products you mention. Fingers crossed!

    I haven’t gotten to try the GFP Angel Food Cake, but I’ve heard it’s delicious. I love Angel Food Cake and haven’t had it since being diagnosed with Celiac Disease.

    My favorite mix is the GFP Chocolate Truffle Brownies.
