Make A Delectable Cake With These Peanut-Free Cake Mixes

Do you have a child with peanut allergies and an upcoming birthday? Perhaps you'd like to bake a cake for a friend who has peanut allergies. Those with peanut allergies don't want to sit out on this right of passage because of their allergy. Yet cakes, along with other baked goods, are some of the riskiest foods for those with peanut allergies due to the possibility of cross-contamination.

Many of those with peanut allergies avoid eating any products from a bakery due to this risk. You never know whether the utensils used in the kitchen have also been used to mix cakes containing peanut ingredients, even if the cake you are ordering is peanut-free. The solution is to bake cakes at home, where you have more control over the process. Still, an allergic reaction is possible unless you begin the process with a peanut-free cake mix.

What Cake Mix is Peanut Free?

One of the most popular boxed cake mixes for those with peanut allergies is one made by Namaste Foods. Their peanut-free and nut-free cake mix are available online and in select grocery stores.

How About Some of the Major Cake Mix Brands?

Looking for peanut-free cake mixes that can be purchased at any grocery store in the country? Some varieties and cake flavors by major brands such as Duncan Hines and Pillsbury are peanut-free, while others are not. Read the packaging carefully to determine which contain peanuts or have been processed in facilities that handle peanut products. We have been asked many times: Is Betty Crocker cake mix nut-free? Among those that allergy sufferers have found to be safe is Betty Crocker's white angel food cake, and Betty Crocker's Super Moist With Pudding in both Yellow and White varieties. Pillsbury does have a cake mix that is peanut-free. One of the more popular options is the Pillsbury Moist Supreme.

Of course, there's also the option of making your own cake from scratch, rather than purchasing a boxed cake mix. Either way, consider your frosting options. Store-bought frosting that those with peanut allergies have found to be safe include several flavors by Betty Crocker, in both the Creamy and Whipped varieties. Again, read the packaging to make sure the variety you're purchasing is peanut-free.
