Spice up your Gluten-Free Life

This is the one baking mix to which I give five whopping stars. I buy it regularly and it's so amazing even gluten-eaters can't get enough of it.

All you need is two eggs, 1/3 cup of vegetable oil, a cup of buttermilk, and a package of Gluten-Free Pantry's Spice Cake & Gingerbread Mix. I highly suggest using smaller pans (I do teenie little cupcakes) and baking for longer than suggested to really get a nice tough crust on the outside of your cakes.

This serves two purposes: 1, if you're no stranger to GF baking, you know that a lot of our baked goods go bad much more quickly than regular flour-based sweets. The tough exterior will help the cake keep a little longer.

And 2, the crust is the most delicious part. Especially if you grease your pan with copious amounts of butter like I do. Mmmmm.

Clearly, not a vegan recipe what with the buttermilk and eggs, but my veggie friends love it. And I can't get enough of it.

I think the packages are something like $5 tops. Worth it on every level. Enjoy.
