Today’s gluten-free review is for a quick and easy dessert or a guilty pleasure snack. The Gluten-Free Trading Company sent us some samples of Easy Cake manufactured by Happy Kitchen. Happy Kitchen is a line of easy to prepare baking mixes, prepared from high quality ingredients. Easy Cakes are small delicious gluten free cakes that are ready to enjoy in 3-4 minutes.
Each box of Easy Cake comes with a microwave-safe cooking container with a lid (to store leftovers), a bag of cake mix, and frosting. The directions are simple to follow. Just add a little vegetable oil, your choice of liquid (milk, soy milk, rice milk or water), an egg the cake mix, and stir. Microwave the cake for 2-3 minutes then add the frosting bar and you’re done! Easy Cakes come in two flavors, Dark chocolate or Vanilla. Each cake serves 1 to 3 servings depending on portion size.
I did not have high hopes for this product at first. I’ve tried regular microwave cake deserts and many of them fail so it was hard for me to think a gluten-free one was going to be any better. However I was pleasantly surprised once again. The cake ends up fluffy, the texture is smooth, and the flavor is yummy.
In addition to being gluten-free these cakes are also milk/casein free, peanut free, tree Nut tree, and vegetarian. That’s pretty amazing for a tasty, fast and easy gluten-free dessert. To learn more about Easy Cake visit the Gluten-Free Trading Company online at www.food4celiacs.com.
