    White Cake mix calls for 3 egg whites. What would happen if I used 3 whole eggs instead?

    It won't be a white cake any more, for one thing! Using whole eggs will change the texture as well. The proportions will change, throwing the entire cake off.

    If you have to substitute, one whole egg equals two egg whites, so for 3 egg whites you'd need 1 1/2 whole eggs.

    If you use three whole eggs, your cake texture might be a bit gummy/chewy. Use only two whole eggs, and you should be fine.

    I agree, 2 whole eggs will do it.

    Just remember, its the egg yolks that make a "yellow" cake yellow. So using whole eggs instead of egg whites will not produce a "white" cake. icon_confused.gif
