Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Baked Goods Theme Week.

It takes more time to whip up a cake (vs. buying already baked goods), but it's usually worth it. This Devil's food chocolate Cake Mix from 1-2-3 Gluten Free, Inc. (Orange, OH) with butter, eggs and added buttermilk produced a great, rich devil's food cake.

I loved the fact that this boxed mix of gluten, dairy, egg and soy free ingredients came without sugar -- which is to to say, I could supply whatever sweetener or type of sugar that I wanted.

The instructions called for 2 cups of sugar. I chose to use about 1 1/2 cups of lemon lavender infused organic sugar; and I loved the outcome -- a less sweet, rich and moist chocolate cake that was devilishly good without the extra sugar. And while there are lots of frosting possibilities, this cake mix was great just by itself.

I chose to use a pan + few large cupcake sized ramekins for baking, making it easier to share (or stick with a single serving).
