This recipe is posted in many places on the internet. I used it with a boxed red velvet cake mix and it worked out great. It added volume to the cake mix but not so much that the pans overflowed.


  1. Add all ingredients to your cake mix ingredients and prepare as indicated on the box. Cakes may need a few extra minutes of baking time because there is more batter than the original cake mix.

Nice recipe! I get so irritated with cake mixes these days because they turn out one inch high. This recipe fixes that and gives a nice high cake, like it should be. I did add a pinch of salt and some vanilla (white cake mix). Cake turned out perfect in a 13" x 9" pan.
