Product Review: Betty Crocker, Chocolate Cake

Over the weekend, we were lucky enough to have some great friends visit.  I was really excited to host an impromptu dinner party.  I decided to throw together a little chocolate chip pound cake for dessert.  I had tried the Betty Crocker gluten-free mixes before at a friend’s house.  It had the taste and texture of a pound cake.  No one could tell that the cake was gluten-free.  When I saw it in the aisle, I decided to try it again.

The instructions were really easy.  It was just a matter of adding two eggs, a softened stick of butter and some water to the mix.  After two minutes in the mixer, the batter looked rich and creamy.  After about 45 minutes in the oven, the cake was moist and did not flake apart easily, unlike many gluten-free products.

This was a fantastic, easy solution for gluten-free dessert.  It certainly tasted as good as a gluten-y cake and was just as easy to make.
