Review: 1-2-3 Gluten-Free Pound Cake Mix

I have always been a fan of 1-2-3 Gluten-Free mixes, so when I found the Delightfully Gratifying Poundcake, I was thrilled!  Even better?  It was lemon, which just so happens to be Jon’s favorite.

The mix is also dairy, casein, peanut, tree nut, corn, egg and soy free in addition to being free of gluten.  The ingredients are:

Sugar, Rice Flour, Potato Starch, Tapioca Flour, Aluminum-free Corn-free Baking Powder (Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Baking Soda, Potato Starch, Monocalcium Phosphate), Natural Flavor, Xanthan Gum.

The directions call for 5 eggs at room temperature, 1 1/2 cups of butter, softened, and 3/4 cup lemon-lime soda.  I chose to make the poundcake in bundt cake form, though you could use 2 loaf pans or 2 – 9-inch round cake pans.  There are different directions for each pan size listed on the box.  I had to take the bundt cake out of the oven about 10 minutes early due to having to leave unexpectedly, so I didn’t expect the cake to turn out well at all.  I was mistaken!  This cake is one of the best I have ever had!


Jon loved it and has eaten about half of the cake.  Aaron even had a piece and he never eats dessert.  I would say this is a hit!

1-2-3 Gluten-Free mixes can be purchased directly from the website or in stores across the US.  I have seen the mixes in my local health food stores and mainstream stores like Kroger and Meijer.  The mixes are a little more pricey than some of the other gluten-free mixes on the market, but they also make just about twice the amount.  If you look, the 1-2-3 Gluten-Free mixes tend to make 2 9-inch cakes, as opposed to 1 9-inch cake.  Same with the brownie mix – it makes almost double what some of the other mixes do, so don’t let price hold you back from trying this brand!

Have you tried 1-2-3 Gluten-Free Poundcake?  What about any of their other mixes?
