Hi, there has been so much talk about doctoring mixes and extenders used. I looked under recipes for the extender and didn't find anything. I am sure its there and I just don't see it. Can someone help me with this. Also is there a basic extender or are they all specific to the cake? Thanks
Here is the recipe I use:
1 cup Flour
3/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup water
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 crisco oil
these ingredients are added after the cake batter has been made.
gives you an extra cup, cup and a half of batter.
There is one under recipes here labeled "cake mix extender" and I've used it and loved it. Good luck.
KiddieKakes,I am sorry I know his question has been asked before . When you use the extender do you still use all the ingredients listed on the back of the box?
Yes...mix the cake mix up like it instructs you too.Then you add the extra ingredients which will give you almost 2 cups extra of batter.It doesn't change the taste or anything and actually makes the cake a bit denser which is good.
THANKS FOR THE INFO. I knew someone here would help me out!
KiddieKakes, Thanks so much. I printed it out so I won't forget.
Can someone remind me what the purpose of doing this is? I gues I just don't "get" it! Sorry.
The purpose is for cakes that need just a little more than a one box recipe so that you don't have to open another box.
Ok. there was a thread a few weeks ago about the extender Kiddiecakes uses vs. the one on CC. I've been using the one on CC for a while. Someone asked about the benefits of using baking powder in Kiddiecakes extender, but I didn't get around to seeing a response. I used the CC extender last night and added 1 tsp of baking powder. It seems ok othewise, but the center had a well. I just cut off the edges to even it up, and it was fine. Shouldn't it have risen?
Kiddiecakes: do you have a good rise with yours?
Can you make cupcakes with the extender recipe? Or does it only work well with cakes?
What does 1/2 crisco oil mean? Is that 1/2 cup?
