Product Review: Kinnikinnick White Cake Mix

Was delighted to try the white cake mix from Kinnikinnick. I’m not really clear on why this is “white” cake because it looks yellow to me (and I promise, I didn’t add any dye to it, don’t like the taste that food coloring leaves behind)! Doesn’t matter what color the cake is though … white… yellow… either way, it’s delicious!

I only deviated slightly from the instructions on the box — after tasting the batter, I decided it needed Vanilla, so I added 2 teaspoons. After it baked, I think a third, maybe a forth teaspoon would have worked — the Vanilla flavor was very slight, but it still tasted great. I think you could create a lot of variations with this cake mix, with quite yummy results!

The texture was spongy, light, and fluffy. Very moist.

I’ve yet to frost a gluten free cake I’ve made. One of these days, I’ll really have to try that. For this cake, I ate some of it plain, and some pieces, with the sugar/cocoa base I use for my homemade hot chocolate. Next time I make the hot chocolate, I’ll take photos of the first step and link this post to the recipe so you can see what I’m talking about. It was very good, and didn’t make the cake too sweet.

The cake lasted several days on the kitchen counter, covered in heavy duty tinfoil. I only ended up tossing about 4 pieces, which wasn’t too bad (for most of the products I try, there’s only 2 of us eating them on a regular basis).

I think cake lovers of all ages will enjoy this cake mix. I would definitely purchase it!
