Not too long ago, we offered whole grain cake mixes that a lot of people really loved. Unfortunately, that love was not quite enough to keep these mixes on the shelves. After the products were discontinued, we got numerous calls wanting to know how people could make it themselves.
When Bob’s Red Mill packages a mix, a batch of around a thousand pounds are mixed and then packaged. Taking those formulas and translating it into a recipe for home is not super easy. Luckily it can be done! After scaling down the recipe, I then looked at hard to find ingredients such as molasses powder and replace it with home versions.
The next step was the most rewarding. We got to try all these scaled down recipes to make sure they work for you. Yum! Everyone had their favorite flavor and I was surprised to see how quickly it all disappeared. I guess that means it was a success!
