I do love a good cake mix and Betty Crockers gluten free Devils Food Cake is certainly one hell of a cake mix, it really hits all the top marks when it comes to expectations.
Around £2.50, not much more than regular Betty Crocker mixes so good value.Availability
In both Asda and Tesco, pretty easy to get hold of.Taste
We'd give more than 5 if we could, it is so good!Appearance

I used to love Betty Crocker products before I had to go gluten free, so when they got into the gluten free market it was a welcome, pleasant surprise and I hoped the gluten free mixes were just as good as the regular.
We have tried all the gluten free packet mixes and love them all but the devils food cake is the best of them all, we couldn't get enough of it!
The packet mix is nice and easy to follow and quick to make which I think is the whole point in a packet mix, if I had time I'd make my own from scratch, I make packet mixes when I am short on time and want a quick, easy cake fix. This mix is so, so simple, the instructions are easy and all you have to do is add egg, oil and water so little effort is needed to make it.
It took us about 1 minute to put the mix together and put it in the oven, so easy. It takes about 20 mins to bake, about the standard for any cake and then obviously cooling time (unless you want to eat it as is, which we wouldn't blame you!)
Once cooled we used Betty Crocker gluten free chocolate icing for filling and topping and we ended up in chocolate heaven. The cake was so moist, I can honestly say I have never had a cake so moist before, either packet mix or homemade. It was so soft, moist and chocolately, it was the perfect chocolate cake, complete with the icing it became a chocoholics dream cake!
We can say the cake didn't last long in the house, everyone, gluten free or not, wanted a slice, and usually followed up with a second slice. We can't wait to make it again, definitely one of the best packet chocolate cakes on the shelves.
