Delicious Cakes for Any Occasion

At Arrowhead Mills, we believe cakes don’t need a special occasion. While we love a good cake on birthdays or anniversaries, it can be an excellent addition to picnics, group gatherings, or just as a nice treat for yourself.

We’ve pulled together some of our favorite cakes, each made with natural and delicious ingredients. We have options for everyone, from the sweet tooth to the fruit lover.

Single-serve cakes

For many gatherings, single-serve options can be a great way to make sure you have enough for everyone. It also allows for easy cleanup.

Our Vanilla Cupcakes with Hibiscus Frosting is a delicious twist on the classic cupcake. Hibiscus creates a light, fruity flavor with just a hit of sweetness. It’s made with our classic All-Purpose Flour. 

For peanut butter lovers, our Peanut Butter Frosted Chocolate Chip Cupcakes includes a yummy and creamy icing alongside a perfectly sweetened chocolate cupcake.

If you enjoy a hint of citrus, try out our Chocolate Orange Mini Bundts. These bundt cakes are as delicious as they are easy, although you will need mini bundt pans. If you don’t have any, you can always modify the recipe into cupcakes. These mini bundts will stand out from the crowd with ingredients like orange, coffee, and coconut milk.

Gluten-free cakes

Arrowhead Mills offers a variety of gluten-free flours that can be incorporated into baked goods. Nearly every recipe we have can be made to be gluten-free.

If you’re looking for something that already has the modifications done for you, we have lots of options!

Our Gluten-Free Chocolate Molten Cakes have a deliciously gooey center alongside a soft chocolate cake. It’s also prepared with raspberries which give it a refreshing tartness. This cake is made with our Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour, which is a direct substitute for regular all-purpose flours.

We have several wonderful cheesecake options, but one of our favorites is our classic Gluten-Free Cheesecake Pie. This cheesecake uses peanut butter and cream cheese for a delicious filling. It’s also naturally vegan!

Unique cakes

We love fun cakes that are unique and sure to woah your friends and family!

Our Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cake is a delicious option that’s also gluten-free. It uses our All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour and our Gluten-Free Brown Rice Flour.  Using lemon and poppy seeds, it’s a delicious twist on the classic cake.

Our Spelt Apple Cake is made with our Organic Spelt Flour and is sure to impress. Made with coconut sugar, yogurt, and apples, it’s filled with pleasant and complimentary flavors.

Lastly, if you enjoy pears then our Almond Pear Cake will be perfect. It’s made with a variety of our gluten-free flours, and is a great way to test out different flours to see what will be the best fit for you.

With so many options, we hope you consider bringing cakes to more gatherings and checking out all of our delicious cake recipes!

Top Bread Recipes from Around the World

If you’re anything like us at Arrowhead Mills, you probably appreciate a good slice of bread! Bread is a staple not just in the US, but around the world.

While we love trying different bread types, we know it can be hard to find straightforward recipes when you have allergies, are trying to manage your weight, or simply want organic, healthy choices.

Thankfully, our baking experts have made delicious renditions of cultural classics from around the world. While our renditions contain some different ingredients from the traditional recipes,  we think we’ve done a pretty good job. 

Keep reading to see some of our favorite versions of our favorite breads from around the world!

Expanding your palate

When you haven’t tried something, it’s hard to know what you’re missing, but some amazing breads are worth trying.

Trying new foods can open you up to a world of possibilities. It can also make it easier to work around your allergies, and allow for more creative expression when you’re cooking.

If you have kids, it’s also great to show them new foods early on to develop a curiosity towards food from around the world.

While it might be hard to try new foods, breads are a great way to introduce yourself to new flavor profiles because they generally contain common ingredients and a flavor that isn’t too overpowering.

Get started with some of these delicious and simple recipes!

Our rendition of international favorites

Gluten-Free Scallion Pancakes are our take on the delicious savory bread. Scallion pancakes have ties to China, Korea, and Taiwan, and our recipe calls for chilies, sesame oil, soy sauce, and of course, scallions. Made completely gluten-free, this recipe uses our Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour and our Gluten-Free Brown Rice Flour.

Buttermilk Blinis are our rendition of the traditional Russian semi-savory pancake. They use heavy cream, butter, and our Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix, making it simple to whip up. Generally, these are served as small, thin pancakes that are topped with ingredients like smoked salmon, creme fraiche, and more.

Our Homemade Roti is a round flatbread that originated in the Indian subcontinent and has a mild taste. It frequently accompanies Indian curries, but can also go great with soups or dips. Our homemade version uses our Organic Whole Grain Spelt Flour instead of the traditional Atta flour, giving it a delicious and slightly nutty flavor.    

Our Cornmeal Tortillas are great with a delicious taco filling. Corn tortillas are popular all over South America and traditionally use Masa as the flour ingredient. We use our Organic Yellow Cornmeal and our Organic All-Purpose Flour, which will give a slightly different, but still delicious, flavor than traditional corn tortillas.

These Latkes are a popular treat during Jewish holidays but can be enjoyed year-round. Traditionally, they originated in the Italian Jewish community, but have since been a staple for many Jewish people. The key ingredient in these is the potatoes, but they also include our Gluten-Free Oat Flour to create a delicious crunch.

With so many options, you can try all of these and more by exploring our many yummy recipes! Happy baking!

Best Bread Recipes for Beginners

Breaking bread is a timeless adage to symbolize coming together for a friendly meal. It’s an important part of relationships and relaxation, but baking bread can feel like another animal.

Making bread doesn’t have to be difficult, and while it can be a time-consuming art form in some cases, it can also be fun, relaxing, and simple!

We’ve rounded up some of the best tips and recipes. Our ideas will make you feel ready to tackle any type of bread and leave your family and friends in awe. 

Everyone should bake bread

Taking time to craft and bake bread has become a trend over the last few years, and we’re happy to know it’s not going anywhere.

There’s just something incredibly satisfying about molding your own dough, watching it rise over time, and cutting through the perfectly crisp crust and into the soft center. It’s a wonderful way to relax that can remind you about all of the simple and enjoyable things in life.

We don’t just bake bread because it’s fun, it’s also delicious and healthy. Sadly, many store-bought breads contain preservatives, difficult-to-name ingredients, and extra sugars that you just don’t need. Making your own can ensure you’re putting exactly what you want into your body. Not to mention, the taste of homemade bread is hard to beat!

Tips for diving into dough

One of the biggest tips for baking bread is carefully looking at all ingredients and measurements. While we love recipes that let you eyeball the measurements, if you’re new to bread, it’s best to follow the recipe as closely as you can. Make sure you see what type of flour and yeast is being called for, and do some research before many any substitutions.

Second, don’t overwork your bread. You’ll generally want to knead it somewhere between 5 and 15 minutes. After that, you’ll let it rest for a bit. Some recipes will tell you to repeat the process, but once it’s ready to go into the oven, you’ll want to keep touching to a minimum.

Finally, it’s all about practice. Bread is hard to master the first go-around, and that’s okay. Learning is part of the fun! Most of the time, the mistake is in the texture, not the flavor, leaving your bread still tasting delicious! Even if it’s not perfect, everyone will still want a bite of your fresh-baked bread.

Dinner Ideas for Lazy Days

At Arrowhead Mills, we know that delicious food doesn’t have to take you all day long! In fact, some of the best recipes are the simplest. We also believe that healthy meals can be easy too.

Here are some of our favorite recipes when we want a meal that doesn’t require much active cooking. These are perfect for lazy days, or if you want an easy dish to complement others.

From salads to baked cauliflower, we’ve got some great suggestions for you to try out!

Summer salad made easy

Sometimes, salads can leave us feeling more hungry than we started, but our salads are designed to keep you satiated and feeling good.

Having a balance of proteins, fats, and healthy carbs keep these meals balanced and perfectly delicious.

One of our favorites is our Barley Butternut Squash Salad. This salad includes butternut squash, a superfood high in many vitamins including antioxidants, vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene. It’s high in fiber to aid in digestion and even weight loss.

The other main ingredient in this salad is our Organic Pearled Barley. This grain acts similarly to rice but is a little thicker. It’s a hearty ingredient that helps make this salad filling. Its high in a variety of vitamins and minerals and is also known to combat diabetes and other diseases.

A warm salad for chilly nights

Another of our favorite salads is our Gluten Free Lentil Salad. This salad has mushrooms and walnuts to create a great texture, but the real stars are the Organic Green Lentils and our Organic Flax Seed. Our lentils are nutrient-dense, with tons of fiber and protein. Flax seeds provide a great source of fiber, iron, and Omega-3 fatty acids.

A simple recipe, our lentil salad just requires cooking the lentils and roasting the vegetables. You’ll have a warm, delicious new salad to add to your diet!

The perfect vegan entrée

Need a quick vegan meal? Try out our Sweet and Spicy Baked Cauliflower. This recipe uses tapioca flour to create the perfect coating for your baked cauliflower. Cauliflower is an excellent alternative to meat, and with the right coating, it will be perfect for vegans and meat lovers alike.

The recipe calls for dipping cauliflower in a coating and baking it for 20 minutes. After that, the cauliflower can be accompanied by the dipping sauce and a side of your choice. We recommend rice, our red lentils, or our organic quinoa.

With baked cauliflower as a base, you can modify this recipe to suit any sauce craving, too!

Need more suggestions?

Simple and delicious meals are great when you have a busy schedule or just want to take a break from being in the kitchen.

One of our other favorite ways to mix up dinner is by serving breakfast! Kids will love the fun change, and we’ve got some great products. Check out our Apple Cider Pancakes & Waffle Mix to get you started.

With so many great options, we know you’ll find something delicious and filling to make your lazy nights a bit more relaxing.

When it comes to speed, the oven might slow you down! One of your favorite no-bake recipes is our No-Bake Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Cookies.

Healthy Holiday Recipe Ideas

Do you often celebrate the holidays with a big, sore belly that is too full to comprehend? In this post, you will find many tips and tricks for hosting healthier-than-usual holiday festivities to spare you a stomach ache. There are plenty of fantastic ways to make this year’s family gathering on the healthier side–better for your health and easier on the tummy!

Prepare veggie dishes

To start, focus on preparing a number of nutrient-dense vegetable dishes plays a huge role in keeping satiated. These are called “volume” foods as you can eat them in high quantities while sparing the calories.

Here are some side dish ideas that range from roasted vegetables to salads and more:

  • Balsamic-glazed root vegetables
  • Roasted Brussel sprouts with Parmesan cheese
  • Air-fryer green beans
  • Carrot and apple salad
  • Crispy air fryer potatoes
  • Simple roasted butternut squash soup
  • Quinoa stuffed squash
  • Greek yogurt potato salad

Prioritize proteins

In addition to loading up on vegetables and more volume-based foods; protein is the biggest factor in satiety. Your big Thanksgiving bird doesn’t have to be the only protein on the table. A roast, a shrimp cocktail, leg of lamb, cranberry meatballs, and deviled eggs are only some of the great protein-filled foods that everyone will benefit from eating.

Find the fiber

To finish, adding more fiber and complex carbohydrates is also a major key factor in how full you feel. The more fiber, the longer and slower it takes for you to digest. You’ll then be less likely to overeat and indulge too much on the lesser nutrient-dense foods.

Here are some dishes that are high in fiber:

  • Lentil & pomegranate salad stuffed sweet potatoes
  • Zucchini-lentil fritters with a lemon garlic aioli
  • Lentil & chickpea Wellington
  • Homemade hummus with crudité

Save room for dessert

With all of these delicious and inviting recipes, we can’t forget the best part of any holiday meal… dessert! These next few recipe ideas are all either made with lower sugar, added fiber from higher fiber flours & flaxseed, perhaps there’s added greek yogurt as well!

  • Mini greek yogurt cheesecakes
  • Flaxseed pumpkin bread with a cream cheese frosting
  • No refined sugar pumpkin parfaits
  • Healthy apple crisp
  • Chocolate covered chickpea clusters

While your entire holiday can consist of healthier options, if you decide to spend the day eating well and saving room in your belly for the best homemade desserts, we won’t judge! That’s the best part after all.
