I picked up this dairy-free, gluten-free cake mix in Boulder a while back. In fact, Lillabee is a Boulder-based company. In addition to having no dairy or gluten, this cake mix is soy-free and all natural, meaning non-GMO. When I picked up a bag, I didn’t realize that the recipe requires 2 eggs, but thankfully, Ener-G Egg Replacer came to the rescue! Lillabee’s aim is to provide delicious baked goods you make at home that are allergy-friendly. Other products include: Fudgy Brownies, Anytime Muffins, and Perfect Pancakes/Waffles.

So included in the bag is a sugar mixture (about a cup’s worth), the baking mix, and directions:
Required ingredients: 2 eggs (3 tsp. egg replacer + 4 Tbs. water), 6 Tbs. Earth Balance margarine, 1 tsp. vanilla extract, 3/4 cup non dairy milk, 2 tsp. apple cider vinegar or lemon juice and an 8-inch cake pan or muffin pan. It was a breeze to throw together – about 5 minutes using the mixer, then 45 minutes in the oven.
It smelled quite delish as it baked! I let it cool for about an hour and then sliced it up. It was wonderful! Very sponge-y and sugary and quite delightful. You can also add things to the batter before baking it, like blueberries, or other fruit.
So where can you find this decadent vegan dessert? If you live in Boulder (or close by) you can purchase it at Dish Gourmet and Caffe Victoria. But you can also order directly from Lillabee. I was very impressed, and next time we’re in Boulder, I will definitely pick some more up.
