Product Review: Simply Organic Carrot Cake Mix : Gluten Free Food Reviews

Whenever there is a birthday in the family, we try a different cake, hoping to find the one to top them all. Maybe it could be this Simply Organic carrot cake I purchased at Against the Grain, a gluten free specialty store in Taylorsville, Utah.

To prepare this gluten free cake mix, I added 2 eggs, 1/2 c water, and 1 cup grated carrots to the dry mix provided. The directions indicate to bake the cake batter in a 8″ or 9″ cake pan. I only had a 9×13 pan, so I went ahead and used that. I didn”t need to bake it as long, and the baked cake was also not as thick since I used a larger pan.

The cake was incredibly soft and moist, maybe even a little too much so. It mushed in my mouth a little because it was so soft. The flavor was wonderful though. It had a pleasant cinnamon taste, which complemented the flavor of the carrots. I can imagine this mix tasting well with the addition of apple instead of carrot, or without anything added at all. However, this cake mix reminded me more of a muffin than a cake. Maybe it was the carrots, but it didn’t have the sweetness that I expected from a cake.
