Easy Homemade Gluten-Free Cake Mix


You know what I miss about cooking with wheat? Cake mix. I know, I know, not healthy. But it’s so handy! Cake mix makes whipping up a quick desert easy. We need an alternative for gluten-free recipes, right?

As always, pre-packaged, gluten-free cake mixes are out of my budget, but I finally got fed up with missing out on all the great desserts that can be made by dumping cake mix in with something (like butter ). All the cake mix recipes in my cook books called for things like powdered vanilla and egg substitutes. Who has that kind of thing in their pantry? Well, I don’t.

Finally, I decided to do some tweaking and made a cake mix using nothing but stuff that ordinary people (or at least people like me) have on hand. I’ve been really happy with it. I used it for those chocolate waffles I mentioned earlier, a peach cake, and a few other things. They all turned out great!

      1. I’ve stored it in an air-tight container for a couple months at a time, but if you want to keep it very long, I’d suggest keeping it in the freezer.
