Last night three Taste Testers made Cherrybrook Kitchen’s gluten-free Chocolate Cake Mix. We picked it up at our local supermarket. Requiring only oil, water, and vanilla, the batter was a snap to throw together. The finished cake was as dark as midnight with a cloud-soft texture. One taster remarked, “It’s just like flour,” but another thought it even airier. Two Taste Testers felt that it had stronger flavors than an average chocolate cake. The third labeled it “definitely edible” and went back for seconds, thirds, fourths, and fifths!
Wheat free, dairy free, nut free, vegan, and kosher, the cake is safe for allergy sufferers and ethically conscientious consumers. The Massachusetts-based family company reassures its customers that all its mixes are “prepared on dedicated equipment that does not produce dairy or egg products. We have strict manufacturing protocols and we batch test for the presence of peanuts, dairy, egg and gluten for consumer safety.”
Cherrybrook Kitchen also makes gluten-free mixes for chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, brownies, and pancakes. Yum. I might just have to taste-test them all!
