I found this gluten free cake mix in a local health food shop and when I realised it was also sugar free I couldn't wait to try it out!
I have to avoid gluten and sugar, as I have celiac disease and diabetes, and the product is ideal if you have similar issues, or are following a low carb diet.
One 50g slice contains only 11.9g of carbohydrates, of which 0.2g is in the form of sugars. That same slice contains 4.9g of dietary fibre and 7.3g of protein.
The packet indicated it was quick and easy to make as well. So far it was hitting all my buttons! So I popped it in my basket and brought one home. I then decided to write this review in case you haven't tried the Sukrin sugar and gluten free cake mix before.
Big, clear graphics on the side of the pack show that in addition to the pack contents you just need...
That's it! Below these pictures is another box that gives the cooking time and temperature of the oven. Simple.
You will also need something to bake your cake in. The packet suggests an 8 inch round cake tin, but I decided to use a 1 pound loaf tin to create a rectangular cake.
Start by turning on your oven to preheat.
This is so easy to make. I used my food mixer, but you could mix it by hand if you don't have a mixer.
You put your eggs, water and oil in your mixer bowl and whisk them up till they are light and foamy.
Then you pour in the dry gluten free cake mix from the packet. If you want to add any flavorings at this stage you can do so. I added a half teaspoon of cinnamon to mine.
Whisk it in until it is all incorporated and you're done.
Pour the mixture into your greased tin and pop it into the oven. It takes just over half an hour to bake.
As I mentioned above, I decided to cook my cake in a loaf tin, which meant the cooking time was a little different to that stated on the packet. Mine needed a further 5 minutes before a skewer inserted into the cake came out clean.
It released easily from the tin, and I then left it to cool before cutting a slice.
I have to say the cake was delicious! Moist, fluffy, light and tasty. It was sweet, without being overly sweet, and the cinnamon added a nice flavor.
This is one gf cake mix that I will definitely be using again.
The only difficulty I encountered was sticking to just one slice!
Sukrin is a Norwegian company, and they have their own web site. Their products are also available on Amazon using the following links...
So far I have been delighted with the gluten free Bread Mix, Sukrin Gold (sugar-free brown sugar alternative), Fibrefine and Almond flours. And no, I do not work for the company, I just enjoy using their products and am happy to recommend them.
