Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Cake Mix Vanilla -- 19 oz
Did not like
I made cupcakes with this and they tasted so bad that I decided not to bring them to a party I was going to bring them to. I followed the directions so that was not the issue. The mix has a funny smell to it but I still gave it a shot. The final product tastes just like it smells. I figure it is probably the potato starch in the mix. It is also not sweet enough in my opinion. My husband spit out the cupcake when he tried it. I'm surprised many people seem to like it in the reviews. This is not for people who are used to eating "regular" cupcakes made with flour. The taste is really different.

Best Cake Ever!
Wow! This is the first vanilla cake ever that we can eat gluten free. Mine tastes just like pound cake and this recipe never needs frosting. Maybe a scoop of almond butter instead, but always need to add bits of dried fruit. I use Paradise Found Banana Mango Pineapple. Yum!

Yippee! No rice flour!
I'm so grateful to have found this cake mix since I have to avoid wheat AND rice.
This mix bakes up nicely and has a good flavor.

Prior to using Bob's Red Mill Cake Mix, I'd used another gluten-free all purpose baking mix to make a cake. It was yucky - very strong fava bean taste - doable for those of us who truly cannot eat wheat or gluten, but, not truly enjoyable. So....thought I'd try Bob's Red Mill to see if I could do better. So very glad I did. Finally - NO "off" taste in the cake. I also used the cake mix in a cookie recipe that I've made for other people - it's one of the favorite cookies in our family and I figured I might as well give it a try. The taste was very good - I will tweak the recipe for texture next time. Using the vanilla gluten free mix in the typical cookie recipes out there that call for a cake mix (2 eggs/oil), I believe reducing to 1 egg and backing off on the oil will bring the end result cookie into a more traditional texture. Highly recommend Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Cake Mix! So far - every gluten-free mix I've tried from Bob's Red Mill has been excellent.

Very nice, light cupcakes
This produced some very nice, light cupcakes. The batter was "sticky" because of the xantham gum and other binders, but they turned out great. We added some unsweetened coconut and a tsp of vanilla extract, and these cupcakes were a hit!
