I know I saw somewhere in the forum, but cannot find it.

How do I do the extended cake mix?

I have to bake two 8"x2", and two 12"x2", but am kinda lost in the quantities of batter I use for each pan.

I need guidance from you guys. TIA

Hi marisanovy

And 8" requires 3.5 c of batter (a little less high altitude) and your 12 will need 7.5. On this site, go to recipes and search "extend" and there are a couple of highly rated extender recipes there.

Good luck!

(Using DH white cake mix, the full recipe makes a tad over 14 cups of batter.)
