Baking a Gluten-Free Cake from Pamela’s Products

| 12/9/2009 1:42:55 PM

I baked a gluten-free Classic Vanilla Cake with cake mix from Pamela’s Products for Natural Home’s assistant editor Kim Wallace’s birthday. Baking a gluten-free cake was a bit different than baking with Betty Crocker. Check out the pictures of the process and learn from some of my mistakes when you try baking mixes from Pamela’s Products.

Making the cake was fairly simple. Just dump the cake mix in a bowl and add the eggs, oil, water and optional almond flavoring. Stir the ingredients and pour the mixture into a lightly greased pan. Bake the cake at 325 degrees for 30 minutes. My cake took slightly longer than 30 minutes for the middle to completely bake.

After I let the cake cool, I made the vanilla frosting. This required combining butter, water and the frosting mix together. As I stirred the ingredients together I was surprised by the color of the frosting. I had expected a bright, snowy white color, but instead the frosting resembled more of an oatmeal color.
