  • Red Basket Food Co Banting Vanilla Cake Premix
    30 Sep, 2015, By Michelle Very easy to make and, amazingly enough, rises wonderfully. Not as light as normal cake but once I had mixed it I pressed peach slices into the mix and then baked it. Poured the peach juice over the cake when it came out of the oven and it was delicious with fresh cream!

  • Pleasantly Surprised
    10 Sep, 2015, By Charmaine Im not a big baker, so was impressed that this came out as lovely as it did. Separating the egg whites was the biggest challenge for me, but it is otherwise effortless. Lovely texture and flavor, not too sweet and smells just as delicious. Goes well with tea. I will definitely buy it again.

  • Awesome product!

    ormal vanilla cake!
