What is the difference between your cake mixes and regular cake mixes?
Our unique blend of specialty flours yields more natural flavor than the wheat flour
found in regular cake mixes. In essence, our gourmet flour blend combines its natural sweetness and nuttiness with the actual flavorings we add. The result? A more flavorful cake. Our cake mixes also contain no artificial
ingredients of any kind. We package the flour blends separate from the organic cane juice so you can substitute or use as little or as much as you like.
Why are Dowd and Rogers cake mixes more costly?
We use unique, specialty flours that cost significantly more than wheat flour. In addition, we import our
chestnut flour from Italy because of its superior quality, adding to the overall cost. We also believe in using all natural ingredients, and organic evaporated cane juice. This costs a bit more but is well worth it when it comes to pure
flavor. Finally, we custom blend our mixes in small batches to ensure the perfect distribution of our gourmet flour blend in every box of mix.
How shelf stable is chestnut flour?
Because chestnuts have virtually no oils to turn the flour rancid, chestnut flour is shelf stable for 12-18 months.
Does your chestnut flour have a smoky aroma and flavor?
No. Our chestnut flour has a sweet, nutty aroma and flavor because the chestnuts are dried via hot air prior to grinding. Other
chestnut flours are dried via wood burning smoke prior to grinding, which gives the flour a smoky aroma and flavor.
