Cherrybrook Kitchen (based out of USA but ship to Canada) make a new line of baking mixes developed for people who are allergic to peanuts, eggs, nuts, and dairy products. They are made from all natural ingredients, and do not contain chemicals or preservatives. They also have a new wheat free and gluten free baking mix line in the works. You can check them out at www.cherrybrookkitchen.com

Hi ethansmom,

Looks like a great business. Have you ever ordered these to Canada? Looks like they only ship within the US.

Hi everyone,
I've ordered these mixes from the U.S. and they do deliver. However, you will be charged duty and it can get very expensive!

Anyway, I recently found out that the Hospital for Sick Children also carry them, and it works out to about $4. 00 cheaper. Sick kids will also deliver them to you. I usually buy 20 boxes at once, so the delivery charge is worth it. My kids love the chocolate cake mix.

I had the same experience with SunButter, when we could order it from the U.S. It was insane how much duty we had to pay...

Yes, Sick Kids no longer carries Cherrybrook and I refuse to pay duty for the cake mixes since it is so expensive. If you are willing to pay the duty, just call them up and they'll ship it to you. I found a recipe that is really good and easy to make for chocolate cake (it only requires one bowl!) and will post it next week. (I'm at the cottage and didn't bring my recipe book).

I don't know that this helps any now, but I surprisingly saw a bunch of their mixes at Winners / HomeSense a while back. I know that their stock isn't a sure thing and can vary, but thought I would mention so you could keep your eyes open...

Saw some the other day at my local Winners (definitely saw the white frosting mix and the sugar cookie mix) -- in the kitchen stuff, dried foods area.

Try this easy recipe, it tastes better than the cherrybrook cake mix and its quite easy to make. I found in the the Food Allergy News Cookbook under "Heavenly Chocolate Cupcakes" I added the chocolate chips.

2 cups sugar
1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup milk-free margarine
21/2 - 2 3/4 cups cold water
3 tbs oil, 3 tbs water, 2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups flour
2 cups dairy free chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare cake pan or muffin tin.
In large bowl, combine everything but flour. Beat until well mixed. Stir in flour and mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Fill cake pan or muffin tins. Bake until cake tester in middle comes out clean.

This will make 2 round cakes or 24 muffins. Enjoy!!

Good morning! Thank you very much for your interest in Cherrybrook Kitchen. We currently have very little distribution in Canada. Winners and Home Sense do carry an assortment of our mixes as a specialty item. Mixes can also be purchased online at www.glutenfree.com, www.peanutfreeplanet.com and www.cosmosveganshoppe.com . All of these stores carry our items and can ship to Canada. We'll be sure to keep you posted when additional stores in Canada carry our line. Thanks again!



The Cherrybrook Team
