They finally arrived in my local grocery! I bought the cookie, brownie, yellow cake & chocolate cake mixes on sale for $3.49 each. Beats the health food store mixes at twice that price...now if they only taste as good...

I bought the chocolate cake mix, but haven't had the chance to try it. I do know I really like the namaste chocolate cake mix.

I finally found them. They were $4.99 at Raley's/Nob Hill but also found them for $4.49 at a local mom and pop store. I bought the Chocolate Cake Mix. made them into cup cakes. They were really good but not as good as the Namaste cake mix. They also do not make as much 12 cup cakes compared to their normal 24 for a regular cake mix. You need two boxes to make a double layered cake.

GFGreenie,
I had the same experience when I made the yellow cake. I thought it was because the instructions said to mix with a mixer that I don't have so mixed by hand. But if your friend had the same experience it wasn't me emoticon

Well I hate to be negative about it but a friend of mine made the yellow cake for me for my birthday and I thought it was really dense and not at all fluffy like a cake should be. She may have made it a day or so early because she does professional cake decorating so she would need to have time to decorate it but I just wasn't impressed. Everyone at the party said it was good. And it was ok, but it wasn't the best GF cake mix I've had, far from it.

I like Pamela's much more, and another GF friend of mine was at my party and she said she likes the 360 cake mix from Whole Foods, and Gluten Free Pantry's cake mix more.

Try Pamela's! I get it at the health food store here & it's delicious! I had Pamela's Luscious Chocolate Cake for my b-day & it was moist & as good or better than regular cake! I'm sure they have vanilla or yellow too!
If you can't find the brand where you shop, go to:

I also love the "Ultimate Baking Mix" for: waffles, pancakes, muffins, and the BEST chocolate chip cookies ever!
Hope this helps! emoticon emoticon emoticon

I made the yellow cake on Monday! It's really good! Really! A bit crumbly but you can't expect miracles from rice flour.

Followed the directions on the box which to my dismay involved a stick o' butter, but it's CAKE! :) There are instructions on Betty's site for a no-butter solution but I wanted to try it "straight up" for my first taste test, then I figured I'd start messing with it.

$3.99 at Wegman's - totally worth it if you ask me, my attempts at GF cake have been less than desirable.

Mark,

Would love that recipe. Having some desserts help me to stick to the diet. Tired of brownies.

I never even thought of looking at the Betty Crocker Website. I am really disapointed in their recipe books because they have been short cutted to basically make every meal from canned or packaged goods. When I was at my folks a couple of weeks ago I enjoyed looking through my Mom's Old 1950's Issue of the cook book. Almost every thing is made from scratcvh and she has adapted a lot of the recipes to gluten free versions. I made the Lemon Meringue Pie with a gluten free crust and it was so much better then any other recipe I have made. I will have to post it but it is far from nutritious.

I've been looking in all my stores all month. I finally found only the yellow cake mix in my local Fred Meyer's(East coasters this is the NW's Krogers). My store is going thru remodeling so hopefully will get the rest when done remodeling.
It was about $4.25 give or take 10cents.
Now do I make cupcakes or cake?

Oh, I don't have a mixer and it takes a stick of softened butter instead of oil like regular mixes, so that will be fun.

No GF Betty Crocker here,yet! I did find GF Corn Chex at Wal-Mart, though!
If you're looking for an Absolutely FAB-U-LOUS chocolate cake mix, try Pamela's Luscious Chocolate Cake mix. I made it for my birthday last month & it was to-die-for!! It runs about $6-$7 & you should be able to find it online or at your local health food store.

Donna,

I looked all over the box and could not find how many cookies it is supposed to make. The brownie box is 16 ounces. I can't wait to get the motivation and energy to bake. Have a birthday party tomorrow and a pre-school graduation on Monday.Never had that when I was a kid.

Sounds great! $4.50 isnt as much as alot of the other nasty mixes I've tried. I am keeping my fingers crossed these are going to taste at least half as good as their other stuff!

That does seem high, but aren't most of our products. i think it will be great though for friends who want to fix something for us when we visit. Also I can keep a few at my daughters home and wnat something quick and easy. Right now all I keep at her home is my all purpose flour.
Thanks for the information, Mark,

The most recent news says the products are scheduled to be on the shelves this Friday. I have heard someone say they found them but the cost $4.50 a package compared to the $.99 my wife just paid for a package of regular cake mix this seems very high. But I am so happy that General Mills is makes such good changes. I only live 1 mile away from one of there plants so it seems we would all ready see them here but I looked yesterday when I went shopping and they did not have any yet.

I'm hoping to make it to a store tomorrow or the next day to see if we can find BCs new mixes. I already love the ones that Pamela's Products put out, but it would be so much more convenient if Betty's were readily available and I didn't have to order them online!

The best part is when you go visit someone who doesn't do GF and they want to make you something, they can do so easier. I haven't checked to see if our store has them yet. I am curious how the price compares to other GF mixes.

I will check for the new products. I don't want to have them around too much for myself but it sure is nice to have an alternative for the children in my classroom who are gluten free (as well as myself) when there is a birthday party or other special occcasion. I hadn't seen the Betty Crocker line before. I will have to check them for dairy and corn ingredients also.

I do have to admit, I have noticed it is much easier to find GF products now then when the doctors tried to get me to change 13 years ago. There is not a large selection, but at least there is something. I am glad to hear it is expanding. The thing with GF is each product tastes different depending on the flours used, so more choice would be nice.

I was looking through the little gluten-free section at the grocery store in town, and I was THRILLED to see that Betty Crocker has started a gluten-free line! Brownies, yellow and chocolate cake, and chocolate chip cookies. Although this poses a problem with baked goods becoming easier and cheaper to get a hold of (brownies and cookies are my weakness), I think it shows that society is taking steps in accommodating for those of us who need to steer clear of gluten. Woo-hoo!
