Cherrybrook Kitchen

I mean it when I say that vegan desserts are really easy to make. Especially cakes and cupcakes.

I mean, all you have to do is replace the egg with one of several alternatives, change the milk to non-dairy milk, and whatever other modifications you choose.

But, sometimes even the simple things need to be simplified. That’s where a products like the cake mixes from Cherrybrook Kitchen come in!

009As you can see, I found this on clearance at Target, which is probably why I bought it since products that are gluten free, dairy free, nut free and egg free can be expensive.

I liked the simplicity of this mix: just add oil! No egg substitutes to make. No other ingredients to swap. And just look at it!

010  Oh. My. Gosh.

I’ve said it before but one of my favorite things about vegan baking is being able to lick the spoon without worrying about salmonella.

011 Oy, if I weren’t trying to get a point across, I doubt I’d shown you that picture of me, ha ha. Perhaps this one is better?

003 Okay, not really. But this shows that I tried the yellow cake mix too 🙂

001 I made cupcakes out of both of these but for some reason did not take any pictures. Bad food blogger!

They aren’t the cheapest things in the world, but if you are in a hurry and want a simple vegan mix to make that birthday cake or cupcakes for a gathering, I highly recommend this line.

I definitely preferred the chocolate to the yellow, but both were tasty, moist and completely animal-free 🙂

Cherrybrook Kitchen also makes mixes for brownies, cookies, pancakes and other yummy goodies. They also make a line of frosting but I have not tried that yet.

I am able to find them at Target, Kroger, Meijer and Whole Foods (so far). Check ‘em out!

I paid for these products myself and was not paid to say how great they are. But trust me, they are.

  1. Hmmm yummy – I have seen those mixes – cool…. My “vegan” cake isn’t the healthiest- 1 box of pillsbury devils food cake mix with 2 TB peanut butter and a 20oz cherry dr pepper – I’m pretty sure the soda doesn’t make it any better
    Than using oil and eggs but we love it! Thanks for sharing these – I like to read other reviews of foods and products on the market 😉

  2. Cherrybrook is the shit. Their pancake mix is incredible too. The salvage markets in the area almost always have tons of their stuff for sale, usually for $1 a box; I’m using several to make stuff for the Farm Sanctuary bake sale. Their gluten-free line is rad and they also have pre-made vanilla in plastic containers.

  3. I’ve seen those in the stores up here, not sure if I wanted to spend for them though! I wish I could find them on clearance – what a deal!

  4. Do you need any taste testers!? Sign me up!

  5. You found these on clearance? What the hell’s wrong with the world?

  6. What an awesome clearance score!

  7. I always pass by these in Kroger and was always sort of “afraid” of them. Maybe it’s their placement by the pre-packaged side items and Slim Fast. Kinda thought it was out of place, but after reading about them here, I might give them a go!

  8. Hi, I just found your blog. Thanks for the review on these vegan cake mixes. I always see them in the gluten-free aisle at my local Wholefoods. I’ve always been curious to know if they are any good. I should make these for my niece.
