Product Review: Shabtai Gourmet Gluten Free Marble Cake – GFCF / soy free/ casein free/ dairy free/ no trans fat/ kosher

Posted on | December 11, 2008 | 2 Comments

This is the last of my Shabtai reviews! This is the final product I tested. Too bad I didn’t save the best for last.

This gluten free cake is a loaf style cake that comes packaged in a foil pan. It slices fairly easily and looks really good; the swirls of chocolate are quite pretty in the white cake. The almond flavor comes through quite nicely, but is subtle enough that it is not overpowering.  Strangely enough, I couldn’t taste much chocolate flavor and the swirls seemed more decorative than anything. This cake would be great topped with flavored whipped cream or fresh berries.

However, I just couldn’t get over the texture and consistency. Because this cake is made with potato starch, and not with any type of flour, it is definitely different. It is incredibly light and spongy with almost a powdery undertone. Honestly, it is hard for me to describe because I have not had anything like it before.

This was my least favorite Shabtai Gourmet product that I was asked to try out. I simply prefer a more traditional cake texture than what this marble cake had to offer. If you do wish to try this gluten free product, I would suggest pairing it with some sort of topping or a heaping scoop of ice cream- or a soy milk based ice cream if you want to keep your dessert dairy free as well.

Pros: nice flavor, slices easily, freezes extremely well, attractive appearance

Cons: unique texture

Rating: 2 stars

Ingredients: eggs, sugar, potato starch, cottonseed oil, cocoa, tapioca, natural flavor, salt

    Is it similar to an angel food cake consistency?

    Hmmm, much more so than the consistency of a traditional cake. It is slightly spongy And springy.
