Can I mix 2 cake mix extender recipies together in the same bowl? I just got a 6 quart KA and know that the 2 recipies together will fit, just not sure if that will mess with the outcome of the cakes? Anyone do this?

I JUST did this, only to remember that 2 don't fit in my mixer. I had to break out my huge Tupperware bowl to finish it up!

It works just fine to double the recipe.

I mix doubles all the time for large cakes...I have never had a problem...

When I make multiple batches of a recipe, I personally prefer to not mix them together⦠I have mixed them together and they turn out just fine, but it makes it more difficult to distribute evenly in the pans, at least for meâ¦

Oh, and the last time I decided to dense-foam 14 eggs with some powder sugar in my 5qt Kitchenaid, let me tell you, I ended up with a huge mess when they started escaping the bowl⦠icon_smile.gif

I always measure out my batter cup by cup so I know they are even.

Thanks guys. I am making one big sheet cake so distributing the batter will not be an issue. I just was not sure if they would bake correctly, cakes seem to be so touchy sometimes! Do you still just mix for 2 minutes on medium?
