Today was Day # 4 of Chocolate Baked Goods Theme Week.
It can be frustrating to buy a standard size box of cake mix when you're only cooking for one or two people. Inevitably too much cake is consumed (because you don't want to throw the rest of the cake away, do you?). Or the cake may go stale because it takes a week to finish it all.
Well, not so with today's Peppermint Chocolate Cake mix from Notable Bites (Mountain View, CA). The mix was conveniently packaged in a smaller size, and came with a small, foil cake pan, and a tiny bag of crushed peppermint candy bits.
Thank you to Wendy, founder of Notable Bites, for developing these "right-sized" mixes and gluten-free and vegan versions of these mixes. All that was required is 2 Tablespoons of oil + 1/3 cup of milk substitute. No refrigerated ingredients (egg or milk) were required.
Today's Peppermint Chocolate Cake Mix was Gluten Free, Vegan (Gluten, Dairy, Egg, Nut and Soy Free), with no preservatives, additives, or artificial flavors. The packaging suggests that the cake be consumed within 2 hours of cooking.
