A Tasty All-Natural Cake & Frosting Mix

By Liz: 

As some of you may know, we tend to raise an eyebrow (or two) when we see ingredients like partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, artifi cial flavor, and artificial colors — Red 40, Blue 1, Yellow 6 – on food product labels.  Those ingredients are often the norm in cake and frosting mixes, which busy moms and dads (and yes, even The Meal Makeover Moms) rely on from time to time.  Now, to the rescue, is a new line of oh-so-tasty all-natural cake and frosting mixes from a company called Naturally Nora


When Nora herself called me two weeks ago and sent along some samples, I donned my apron and got cooking.  With two party invitations and a promise to bring dessert, I first tried Nora’s Cookie Cookie Yellow Cake Mix with Bits of Chocolate Cookie and the Cheerful Chocolate frosting.  For party-number two, I baked Alot’a Dots Yellow Cake Mix with Bits of Color and the Alot’a Dots frosting.  The response from over a dozen kid taste testers a alot’a adults was overwhelmingly positive.  Not a crumb was left.  If you get a chance to try one of Nora’s mixes or any other all-natural products, let us know what you think it them.

    This sounds great. It isn’t easy to find products without artificial colors and flavors so I’ll look for this next time I’m at the grocery store. I was disappointed to find that the granola bars I brought home from the store last week contained Red 40, BLue 1, and Yellow 6. Why the heck to they have to add colors to granola bars???
