Glutino Gluten Free Pantry Old Fashioned Yellow Cake -- 15 oz
Okay, but not the winner in our Bake-Off
I did a three-way bakeoff between Glutino, Pamela's and Cherrybrook Kitchen brand Yellow Cake Mix, following the recipe on each product as indicated. I opted to add 4 eggs (instead of 3) to Pamela's product as recommended on the package for "a lighter, fluffier texture". The Glutino product called for two eggs and Cherrybrook did not call for any egg (advertising itself as egg free). Of the three products, Pamela's was the clear winner, turning out a classic vanilla cake, as promised. It had good vanilla flavor, was moist and had nice texture (not dry or grainy in any way). In contrast, the Glutino cake was very dry and crumbly. Taster's felt it also lacked flavor. However, I noticed that they still ate it. Not so with Cherrybrook Kitchen! This cake did not rise properly, and while it initially tasted okay, it left a "corn starch" like coating in the mouth upon swallowing. Most of this cake was left on the plate.

A GREAT Cake Mix Surprise
sometimes, you try out a gluten-free product and it is just so-so. this yellow cake mix tastes just like the version with gluten. I put some chocolate icing on it, and my company and I snarfed it down! Note: it makes a 9" X 9" square.

Best Gluten Free flour mix
I love to bake and the Gluten Free pantry mixes are the best in my opinion. They are also very reasonably priced which I really like. I take regular recipes and replace the cake mix with the gluten free pantry flour and my cakes turn out moist and most people can't tell that it's gluten free. I highly recommend that Old Fashioned Cake and Cookie Mix as well as the Chocolate cake mix. I've used the regular flour for pie crusts and it gets a little flaky at times but can still work.

Tasty and well priced
My family doesn't eat eggs or dairy, and my son is gluten intolerant, so I was thrilled that this cake responded well using dairy and egg alternatives. The timing for baking was perfect and everyone at our party raved at the taste. I've tried some other brands, which were fine, but this one is better priced.

I did not expect much when I purchased this but to my surprise it tastes very good not gritty or dry but moist.
