Chef’s Notes:
To make a more favorite flavors, see the back of the Bella Gluten-Free All Purpose Baking Mix package for a Velvety Vanilla or Chocolate Dream Cake variation. If you want a marble cake, mix batter. Divide batter in half and add 1/4 cup cocoa to one half of the batter. Add half of vanilla cake batter to each prepared pan and add spoon droppings of chocolate batter to top of each pan. Swirl with a knife. Bake according to above instructions.
