Wholesome Chow Organic Gluten Free Cake Mix Chocolate Lavender -- 11.7 oz
Not much flavor, gummy texture
I hate to spoil the five star run, but this just is not worth getting again, IMO. I could tell by the taste of the powdered mix that it would have hardly any chocolate or lavender flavor, so I added two tablespoons of raw cocoa powder and used 1/4 c. of lavender syrup in place of some of the required liquid (total liquid asked for in recipe was 1 1/4 c.) The instructions said to use 1 1/4 c. of any type of milk (dairy or non), so I chose to use 1 c. of whole cow's milk plus the lavender syrup. With the added flavors and richness of the whole milk, the cake came out okay. That is, it looked like a cake and had an "okay" (still not great) chocolate and lavender flavor, but it also had a gummy texture when bitten into (due to the rice flour I would imagine). Anyway, this is not a cake I would make again due to the texture and lack of flavor. Sorry guys.
PS. I think if I wanted to have a lavender/choc cake again (it is a nice combo of flavors), I would start with Pamela's chocolate cake mix and add lavender syrup.

Excellent GF chocolate cake.
I did kick up the ingredients a bit.. with melted butter.. x2 small beaten eggs ( reduced the milk by 1/4 c.) .I also added one teaspoon of Belgian cocoa powder . I stirred in 1/4 c organic sunspire chocolate chips.( from Vitacost ). The result was an amazing , moist , fine textured chocolate cake.. that did not require any frosting. Very nice mix. Ordering the plain chocolate for next time.. to try that one. Good quality product.

Tastes like dreams.
I was pleasantly surprised because I had never eaten anything with lavender and I didn't know what to expect. It tastes lovely and the texture is perfect. It's light, fluffy and moist. I will be buying this again, for sure.

I can't believe a packaged mix can taste so good! We made this into cupcakes which came out so moist and delicious that we didn't even need to top them with frosting. No one would ever think these were gluten free!

No one would ever know this is vegan and healthy, or made from a mix! Rich chocolate and you can definitely taste the lavender. Very unique and delicious combination. Will be taking to parties as no one will have anything this unusual that tastes so good!
