Making a Gluten-Free Diet Really Easy

Following a gluten-free diet can be quite a task, yet this Andrew James Gluten Free Cake Mix means you can enjoy a sweet treat in next to no time. Our wide range of gluten-free mixes make the whole process so much easier - from purchasing high-quality gluten-free products to baking and enjoying them at the end. This delicious gluten free vanilla sponge mix is suitable for vegetarians and those with coeliac dietary requirements.   

How Is It Gluten Free?

Our 100% gluten free mix is safe for gluten intolerant or sensitive people to consume due to the use of rice flour, potato starch, and buckwheat flour.  

How Do I Use the Mix?

It's easy, just follow the instructions on the packet. You can also try one of our easy to follow recipes like this one.

Set the oven to 190oC/375F/Gas Mark 5, and tip the cake ingredients into a bowl. Add 165g of softened butter, 3 eggs, and 75ml of milk. Mix on slow for 1 minute before scraping down. Then, mix for a further 2 minutes on medium speed until smooth and divide the mixture between the sandwich tins and spread out. After that, bake the sponges for 20 to 25 minutes until they have risen and feel springy to the touch. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tins for about 5 minutes, and then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.   

The sponges can be filled with cream and jam if you like. Sprinkle the top with icing sugar before serving.

Product FAQs
Are gluten free cakes dry?

No. If you make the cakes following the instructions they are quite moist. Just make sure that you don’t overbake the cake in the oven as this will dry it out.

Are gluten free cakes good?

Yes, they can be brilliant. The great thing about this sponge cake mix is that you can use it to create a whole range of different cakes just by adding in your own ingredients.

What is gluten free cake mix?

A gluten free cake mix is the combination of all the dry ingredients of a normal cake but it has the gluten containing elements such as flour and baking powder swapped out for gluten free alternatives. This means it can be eaten by anyone following a gluten free diet.

Do gluten free cakes taste different?


Not really. We’ve made plenty of gluten free cakes and shared them round the office and noone has ever noticed the difference.

Suggested Recipes

Simple Lemon Drizzle Cake


1 Bag of Andrew James Gluten Free Sponge Cake Mix

165g Softened Butter

3 Large Eggs

75ml Milk

1 Unwaxed Lemon

3 tbsp. Icing Sugar

Make up the cake mix following the instructions on the packet and add the fine zest of the lemon.

Bake in the oven until springy to the touch and a skewer or knife comes out clean, then leave to cool.

Once the cake has cooled down use a skewer or small knife to pierce the top of the cake several times, this is to allow the drizzle to soak into the cake.

Heat the lemon juice in the microwave (700w) for 45 seconds then mix in the icing sugar.

Pour the drizzle over the cake to create a glaze.

If you prefer, you can pour the drizzle over the cake whilst it is still warm. This will let more of the drizzle soak in but there won’t be very much glaze on the top when the cake is cooled and ready to serve.


Mint Choc Chip Cake Pops


1 Bag of Andrew James Gluten Free Sponge Cake Mix

165g Softened Butter

3 Large Eggs

75ml Milk

1 tsp. Peppermint Essence

100g Dark Choc Chips

340g Chocolate Melts in a colour of your choice

Make up the cake mix using the instructions on the packet then stir in the peppermint essence and chocolate chips.

Seperate the batter into your cake pop maker (either a cake pop maker machine or moulds in the oven).

Put your cooked cake pops onto their sticks and allow to cool.

Melt the chocolate using the packet instructions (alternatively, melt some good quality chocolate in a bowl over hot water).

Dip each cake pop into the melted chocolate allowing it to become completed coated then allow the chocolate to set.

If you want to, you can add some extra peppermint essence to the melted chocolate for an even fresher taste.
