After trying the Betty Crocker brownie mix with decent results, I moved on to the gluten free cake mixes - the yellow and devil’s food flavors. I was especially eager to see how good these mixes were simply because of the price. I can purchase these locally for $3.79 at my local grocery store- $1 cheaper than the yummy Pamela’s gluten free cake mix. Gluten free mixes are expensive, and having a more affordable option is always a bonus.
Betty Crocker Gluten Free Devil’s Food cake mix: My favorite of the two by a long shot. This mix was moist and a little more dense (not quite as spongy) than the original Betty Crocker cake mix. The flavor was rich and chocolaty and almost exactly like their non-GF mix. This mix is great and doesn’t last long at my house! I did manage to hide one cupcake in my fridge, all wrapped up, and it was still moist and yummy 5 days later. Rating: 4 stars
Betty Crocker Gluten Free Yellow cake mix: Meh- this cake mix is just so-so. I have made this cake twice, and both times it was very crumbly and dry with a buttery flavor and a twinge of a strange after-taste. In all honesty though, I have yet to taste a gluten free yellow cake mix that is really good. I was disappointed with this one. Rating: 3 stars
