So excited to try this!!! I mixed this up for a box of betty crocker butter cake mix with pudding. I got 2 huge single-layer cakes. However, the moistness of having pudding in the cake mix was watered down. Will try again next time with a few teaspoons of pudding mix to retain the cake's moistness. Mthks for sharing this!!!
This turned out excellent. I used this extender to make a monster truck cake for my son's birthday. It was double layered strawberry & chocolate. I added some extra cocoa to the chocolate and followed the rest of the instructions exactly. The cake turned out awesome, huge, and delicious. I have never had compliments like this with cake. I wish I would have taken pictures of the inside before it was devoured, the think pink and brown layers looked beautiful. Thanks so much, I will never make a cake again without using this extender. Wondering how it would turn out with a brownie mix?
This is a thifty way to get more for your money. I cannot tell the difference from the original. Thanks for saving us all a lot of money.
This made my cake much fluffier and softer. I didn't see that it made the cake much bigger but it was better. I plan to try it with cupcakes and see if I can get more cakes from one mix. I would recommend this anytime you are baking a cake. I used it on a white cake. When I made this with a chocolate cake mix I did notice a difference in the flavor. It wasn't bad just different. The chocolate taste seemed diluted. I'm not sure how to "fix" this..I am going to try it with a spice cake recipe and see the same thing happens. I will definitely continue to use it on white and yellow cakes.
This is such a wonderful extender. I used it for the first time to prepare a boxed carrot cake. It made a beautifully high 9" round layer cake that was so impressive looking, and the flavor was not affected in the least, it was so good. I followed candlelady9ah's suggestion of adding the dry ingredients directly to the dry cake mix ingredients and the liquid ingredients to the liquids called for in the cake mix then proceeded to prepare my cake per the package instructions. I'll never make a cake mix cake again without using this extender.
This was perfect for my two 9 inch round pans. If I wouldve just used the box cake mix as it, it would have looked so wimpy! Now with the extender I have a nice full cake that stands great on its own..No wimpiness allowed.
This recipe is fantastic to make sure you have enough cupcakes or if you want to make three layer cake or sheetcakes. Just be a little careful-depending on what flavor cake mix you're using, this extender can diminish the flavor slightly.
Gross, i dont know why this came out so bad, i used everything listed in the amouts listed, and the cake ended up tasting like eggs. I had gotten my hopes up too because all the rave reviews. I used a Duncan Hines, maybe it is just the mix i used. If i get a chance to make it using Crocker, i'll try it again
A great extender! I used a regular Betty Crocker yellow cake mix and baked it off in a 9x13 glass pan. I used a Chocolate/Espresso Pour icing to go over the top of it (which I hope you'll see on Zaar soon, as I submitted it the other day....it's delicious!). I just added the regular cake ingredients and then added the extender ingredients and mixed them all at once. The cake turned out beautifully.
Worked out very well. I did add extra vanilla to a yellow cake mix for this recipe. It got a thumbs up from the entire crew. Thank you for sharing the recipe!
