Our reviewer thought the Marble Cake was spot on in both flavor and texture - perfectly moist and cohesive with not a crumble in sight. The Vanilla Cupcakes had a nice pound cake-like vibe, but a fluffier, moister crumb and more vanilla intensity was desired. To note, these freshly baked goodies are sold in stores, but it helps that the bakery ships nationwide.

Katz Gluten Free Cakes and Cupcakes (Review) - made in a dairy-free, nut-free, kosher parve facility

Katz has brought the convenience of storebought cakes and cupcakes to the gluten-free and dairy-free! Katz Gluten Free has a Certified Gluten Free bakery where all of these sweet treats come to life. Not only gluten-free, but the facility is also completely nut-free, dairy-free and kosher.

Tasting Notes for Katz Gluten Free Cakes and Cupcakes

These baked treats are available in a wide variety of cakes, cupcakes, cookies, donuts, etc. We had the chance to sample the Vanilla Cupcakes and the Marble Cake:

Vanilla Cupcake

The top of the Vanilla Cupcakes was sorta sticky like it had a “glaze” on it. What was that? No matter. I bit right in and immediately went WHAT?! What was I tasting? I grabbed the bag and looked at the ingredients…. it was orange! There is orange in these vanilla cupcakes! Very strange.

The texture of the cupcake was definitely not a soft cupcake, so anyone looking for a fluffy moist cupcake should not look here. This is a dense cake, more like a pound cake I would say. The orange flavor in it definitely made it seem MORE like a pound cake than a cupcake I should say. The cupcake was not dry however, perfectly balanced out. Once I got past the orange, I would say this is a tasty little treat.

Ok- I gotta give this one a 7 out of 10. I didn’t like the orange flavor that much and I feel like it should be named as it is… a pound cake! So maybe the same recipe in a loaf format?!

Marble Cake

But the Marble Cake, talk about yummy! I love marble cake and this one was tops! It had the perfect blend of vanilla-y and chocolate-y swirls. When I cut into the loaf the knife slid right through with no crumbles and no mess. Which is what I like when it comes to gluten free goodies. I hate it when you cut into them and they just fall right apart. This one was no issue. The loaf is perfect to serve at a little tea party for little ones or for adults!

It has that slight flavor of orange juice that kicks the sweetness up a notch. Yummy! It does contain eggs so it’s not vegan. But certainly for the person who would like to try something gluten and dairy free, this is an excellent little snack to try out!
