Best Chocolate Cake Ever! Just Happens to be Gluten Free

May 9, 2009

I recently made the health and lifestyle change to eliminate gluten from my diet. As a result I have more energy and brain function, and I have lost several pounds without much effort. But with the discovery of the Best Chocolate Cake Ever!, I may have to watch out in that last area.


First my sis made it for my husband and I to congratulate us on how disciplined we were being with our new GF life. A perfect little 8 x 8 pan of sin! We cut into the cake and were amazed at how super moist it was. I looked at the little square of chocolate cake on my plate, and couldn’t believe that it would taste as good as it looked, and I was right. It tasted even better! We were in chocolate cake heaven. The cake was super moist and rich, but not too sweet. The frosting was very sweet and creamy good. Mmmmm. It was so yummy! Then at a meeting before we left for our trip to Bodega Bay, one of my support group members gave me a box of the same delicious cake mix. 


Sof’ella Gluten Free Chocolate Cake & Frosting Mix


Ingredients: Sugar, White Rice Flour, Natural Cocoa Powder, Navy Bean Flour, Tapioca Starch, Cornstarch, Baking Soda, Natural Flavor, Baking Powder (Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Cornstarch, Monocalcium Phosphate), Sea Salt, Guar Gum.


Ingredients:  Powdered Sugar, Natural Cocoa Powder, Natural Flavor, Sea Salt



The box contains the ingredients to make TWO perfect little 8 x 8 pans of sin! So we took the box with us on our trip and made both cakes to celebrate the hubby’s 40th birthday. Of the eight of us on the trip, three of us eat gluten free, but all eight of us LOVED the cake. Rob’s brother Chris (the amazing photographer) is a chocolate connoisseur, and he said if we had not told him it was GF, he never would have suspected it. Rob’s other brother Rich was able to eat his first piece of cake in a long time. He has celiac and is severely allergic to gluten. It was nice to see him enjoying something so completely indulgent. Personally, cake was one of the few things I never would have missed now that I am GF, but the sof’ella chocolate cake has made me a bigger fan of cake than I ever was. It is truly delicious!


My sister found the sof’ella cake mix at Costco, and my group member found it at Whole Foods. I think you can also order it online if you click on the link above. Even if you are not gluten free, I think you will really enjoy it.
