can be yielded from a pillsbury box cake mix and the BC supermoist cake mixes? I am talking finished batter that is ready to be poured into a pan. Not anything outside of the standard on the box ingredients ie. oil water eggs added. I know this is an odd question but I have a family member that wants a plain boxed cake for their specific order and I am still somewhat a newbie at this and really had never stopped and given much thought to measuring each box. I thought with all the brilliant minds here that someone has outsmarted me and already figured this one out Thank you in advance for any help.
The Duncan Hines are 5 1/2 cups batter per box. I'm pretty sure they're all about the same.
OK, since I have a terrible case of insomnia and have nothing else to do right now, I reasearched it online. Duncan Hines website says their cake mixes yield 5 1/2 cups batter, Pillsbury website says their cake mixes yield 4 1/2 cups batter, Betty Crocker website does not tell anywhere at all how much batter their mixes yield.
I had read somewhere a while back that most box mixes yield between 4 - 6 cups batter.
Can you tell I'm reallllllly bored!!
Hope this helps.
Thank you so much! I am sorry to hear of your insomnia but appreciate all that you did to get me those measurements. Thank you so much!
It depends on the brand and the flavor.
BC and Pillsbury range between 4 and 5 cups. I made a Pillsbury white mix the other day and was disappointed that it didn't even make 24 cupcakes, where as other ones I have tried from BC and DH made atleast 24 if not more.
DH makes between 5 and 6 cups. Their Golden Butter Recipe makes 6 cups. White makes 5. And the other flavors are between 5 and 5.5.
Best thing to do is keep a running list when you use a new brand/flavor so you can use the information in the future.
