I was mixing two batters at once to save time and realized after that batch was in the oven and I was on my third (single) mix that I hadn't doubled the oil for the first batch. icon_surprised.gif So, I'm baking cakes with half the oil they should have had.

What can I do now? Are these cakes going to be dry or what? The oil demands were 2 TBS per box and I have 2 boxes with 2 TBS. icon_confused.gif

Any advice or can someone at least reassure me the cakes won't be horrible?

If they were cake mixes (I assume from the word box) then they will be fine. I just eyeball the oil in mine so I'm sure I either get more or less and it doesn't effect the taste or texture any.

Thanks Patty, you know you're right too... the cakes turned out fine and I wouldn't have even known there was less oil than called for had I not been the one to make the mistake! lol

If you were making the doctored WASC cake, there are two versions: expanded flavors and original.

The expanded flavors version WASC does use oil:

The original WASC doesn't use ANY oil:
