Tips from our Bakers

  • For a bundt-style cake: Prepare as directed, using a 10-cup capacity pan. Add 2 cups chocolate chips or nuts. Bake 45-48 minutes. Cool in pan for 10 minutes before turning out onto a rack to cool completely.
  • Beat in 4 eggs, vegetable oil, water, and gluten-free vanilla extract. Spoon into 2 round layer pans, bake, and enjoy. Add your own frosting, if desired. Another benefit: we've worked hard to ensure that cake made from our mix will stay fresher longer than cake made from other mixes.
  • King Arthur Flour recommends the GFCO's Certified Gluten-Free Food Service Training and Management program for professional gluten-free baking instruction. For more information, please visit
