In The Spotlight: Our Gluten-Free Cake Mix

In The Spotlight: Our Gluten-Free Cake Mix

Hey there cake lovers!

This week we’ve been sharing our top hints and tips for our awesome Gluten Free Sponge and Cupcake mix! Here they are in case you missed them & a fantastic recipe especially for our readers;

  1. Firstly, you can make our sponge mix your own! Turn up the flavour sensation by adding chocolate/nuts or something else that takes your fancy.
  2. Are you dairy free/vegan? Don’t worry, you can still enjoy out awesome sponge & cupcake mix! Just add your favourite dairy free egg and butter replacements to the mix instead – trust us, it’ll taste amazing!
  3. Instead of cupcakes, why not make Madeleines? Just use the recipe for cupcakes but pour the mix into a cute madeleine tin. Why not make them extra rich? Just add more butter to taste! Your family will think you’re a master baker 😉.
  4. Do you have offcuts from your delicious cakes? Why not soak in your favourite tipple and make a boozy trifle?#classic!
  5. You should bake your sponge cake in a loaf tin & slice, then use it to make a ‘cake and butter’ pudding. This is a twist on an absolute classic that we’re sure you’ll love. Maybe add orange zest to your sponge mix and cover with marmalade for an extra flavour kick.
  6. Not sure when your sponge cake it cooked? Simply press your finger lightly on the top of your sponge, if it springs straight back your sponge is cooked to perfection.


We really hope you’ve enjoyed reading our hints and tips this week – trust us, there’s lots more where that came from so keep your eyes peeled. Do you like what you see? Check out our product page!
