I’ve tasted Glebe Farm Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Mix… should you put a pack in the trolley or leave it on the shelf?
Glebe Farm Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Mix blurb reads: Glebe Farm gluten-free mixes are suitable for coeliacs and give excellent results every time. The recipes are created by Rebecca Rayner who tests the mixes in the Glebe Farm Kitchen to ensure they are easy to use and most importantly taste delicious!
OK: Glebe Farm produce, among other things, a range of cake mixes suitable for coeliacs. It’s just a question of adding margarine and eggs and the cake is ready to bake.
The tasting note: The cocoa powder makes it taste surprisingly chocolatey, and the texture of the cake is soft and reasonably moist. The suggested buttercream icing makes it so tasty that no one will even guess that it’s gluten-free (unless you tell them). Personally, I would melt some extra chocolate into the cake…
The full ingredient list: Gluten Free Flour (Potato Starch, Rice Flour), Sugar, Fat Reduced Cocoa Powder*, Gluten Free Baking Powder (Acid Sodium Pyrophosphate, Sodium Bicarbonate), Xanthan Gum, (*Cocoa Solids 7% Minimum).
Can you eat it? Free from gluten, wheat, eggs, soya, milk. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans. The mix can be made up with egg substitute.
Should you put it in the trolley? Very easy to make up, this mix makes a 6 inch, 2-layer cake. It is surprisingly chocolatey and not at all dry.
