Whole Grain Cake Recipes

Not too long ago, we offered whole grain cake mixes that a lot of people really loved.  Unfortunately, that love was not quite enough to keep these mixes on the shelves. After the products were discontinued, we got numerous calls wanting to know how people could make it themselves.

When Bob’s Red Mill packages a mix, a batch of around a thousand pounds are mixed and then packaged.  Taking those formulas and translating it into a recipe for home is not super easy.  Luckily it can be done! After scaling down the recipe, I then looked at hard to find ingredients such as molasses powder and replace it with home versions.

The next step was the most rewarding.  We got to try all these scaled down recipes to make sure they work for you.  Yum!  Everyone had their favorite flavor and I was surprised to see how quickly it all disappeared.  I guess that means it was a success!

Nice Apple Cake recipe. Its new for me. Very easy to make it. Thank you.

Cake recipes are the specialty of my best friend, my favorite ones are those exotic fruit cakes:”,

i love to eat cakes and bake them too that is why i am always on the lookout for cake recipes~.~

Hi, I tried your cake recipe some days ago but somehow couldn’t achieve the same result as you, my cake definitely wasn’t looking that good (but tasted fine). What kind of chocolate are you using? Maybe it’s coming from the flour I used, i’m gluten intelorant so I used tapioca flour instead of usual wheat flour.

Chelsea says:

We just used am unsweetened cocoa powder. It sounds like the problem was the flour you used. Did you just use Tapioca Flour? For gluten free baking, it is best to use a combination of flours, or you can use our Gluten Free All Purpose Flour. You will want to add Xanthan Gum as well. For cakes you would add 1/2 tsp. per cup of flour.

i love to munch cakes and i bake receipes based on different cake recipes that i can find on the net*`’

Cakes from whole grain sound like one tasty and healthy recipe. I will try this for sure. Thank you so much for sharing!

Ada says:

I was looking for whole grain cake recipes and these all look fantastic, but all the links are broken. Can you please send me the recipes via email? Thanks!

This is the page with broken links:

We are sorry you are having trouble viewing the recipes. The links are not broken from our end. You may want to look at them from a different browser on your computer. Let us know if that still doesn’t work for you.

Nick says:

I can confirm that when clicking the recipe titles, I am redirected to the main Recipes page rather than the specific recipe, and when clicking on any of the images, I get your 404 page.

None of these recipes appear in the Whole Grain Recipes section as listed here either. There are some recipes that seem like similar alternatives, but these specific recipes don’t appear to be listed.

We are really sorry about the recipe links. This is an old post and our recipe section has been revamped with better recipes. Please feel free to search our recipe section for similar recipes that may suit your needs.
