I'm not sure if this has been asked yet..I'm sure it has..but I couldnt find it. How many cups of batter are in a traditional cake mix? Is it 4 or 6?

The box says 4-6 cups. I have measured and always come up with 6 cups. A few times I had 61/2.

i think it also depends on which cakemix you use. i have gotten more with DH mixes. BC and pillsbury have given me less than 6. are you baking just as the box directs or using an extender? the extender sometimes adds more too.

I only use Duncan Hines products. I find that it is the moistest.

It depends on the brand of the cake mix as well as the flavor.

i agree with TexasSugar I am a BC girl and there white mix is always less then there chocolate mix. But lately it has been the other way around.

I only use pillsbury ( the kind that already has pudding in the mix) and I think it only has like 4 1/2 cups but it is so much more moist than any other kind. They were all out of it this weekend so I had to get DH and it just tasted terrible compared to the pillsbury.
