Chocolate Cake, You Are Great

If you’re like me, you love chocolate. And chocolate cake. But if you’re also like me, you can’t have gluten, dairy, or hydrogenated oils. That poses a bit of a problem.

Cooking gluten-free baked goods at home that taste good is hard. The gluten-free goodies that are also delicious requires multiple forms of gluten-free flours and other less-than-normal ingredients that make it delicious. When you’re cooking from home and don’t want to buy lots of expensive ingredients that you’ll only use a little of, it makes things a little harder. I’ve aways been a bit baker, so accepting this realization wasn’t easy. However, I had accepted it: I was not going to be able to bake very good cakes and cupcakes.

But then, about a year after I cut all of those things out of my diet, my mother stumbled across a gold mine: Betty Crocker’s Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Mix. By this point, I had all but given up on homemade recipes, because of the above reasons. I’ve always been against using mixes, because I’m a baking snob. I like homemade recipes. I’ll admit it, I’m a snob.

But y’all. This cake. Goodness gracious.

Here’s an added bonus: with five-ish minutes left of baking, take it out of the oven and sprinkle on chocolate chips and toffee chips for a turtle taste. It’s incredible!
