Sometimes, even a dairy-free baker like myself runs out of time or needs a break from measuring, sifting and mixing. Below is a list of some of my favorite dairy-free baking mixes for when I'm in a pinch.
All-Purpose Baking Mixes
For days when you're not in the mood to make dairy-free biscuits or other dairy-free baked goods from scratch, these dairy-free baking mixes are always helpful to keep around and can be found in most grocery stores.

Dairy-free cakes take time, from whipping the soy margarine with the sugar to letting the cakes cool before frosting the cake with dairy-free frosting. Sometimes, however, when I'm in a pinch and need to get the cake in the oven NOW, these dairy-free cake mixes come in handy. Most of these dairy-free cake mixes call for oil, but if a particular variety calls for butter, simply substitute with a dairy-free soy margarine or other dairy-free butter substitute.
