The Pure Pantry was founded by Elizabeth Kaplan, trained teacher and chef who was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2002. Elizabeth searched for gluten free foods that she could eat and was disappointed when she could not find good tasting, healthy, gluten free food, she began creating organic, allergy free, delicious and nutritious foods for her entire family. After experimenting for several years and receiving rave reviews from her family Elizabeth had developed a delicious new line of baking mixes from organic, nutritious, whole grain flours high in fiber and omega 3s together with unique recipes that provide limitless possibilities for creating pancakes, waffles, cookies, crepes, muffins, breads, scones, cakes and more and The Pure Pantry was created.
So you all know how much I love chocolate. We do not have any gluten intolerance issues in our house, but as you also know we have been eating more cleanly and closely examining the foods we eat so The Pure Pantry’s wide range of products definitely have place in our home. I received The Pure Pantry Dark Chocolate Cake Mix for review, this cake mix contains sucanat and maple sugar, both are unrefined sweeteners, quinoa, sorghum and brown rice, mixed with a blend of whole grain flours. Sometimes when I cook with these alternative mixes I find that they do not rise right, have a weird texture and worst of all they just don’t taste like they should, but I was not disappointed at all with this cake mix.
As you can see in the picture above, the cupcakes turned out great. They look like a cupcake, feel like a cupcake in your mouth and they taste like a rich, chocolatey dark chocolate cake. I used a homemade Peanut Butter Buttercream Frosting from Wilton, please note the frosting is NOT gluten free. If you are eating gluten free or just want to eat healthier, knowing what you put in your body then I highly recommend the products from The Pure Pantry. All of their products can be purchased online here or find a store near you here.
