When I make the Betty C mixes I add an extra egg, 1/2 cup of sour cream, and a 3.4 oz. box of pudding and that usually makes 5 to 5 1/2 cups. Hope this helps.

A 10x2 round pan will hold one entire cake mix batter perfectly.

I **NEVER** measure by cups. Oooohhhhhhh so messy and not necessary.
Each brand of mix and each flavor yields a different amount. I don't remember exactly any more but something like: banana cake mix might measure only 3 1/2 cups batter while chocolate gives 4 1/4 cups yet each bakes up perfectly in that same 10x2 round pan. (My #s and flavors might not be exact -- just an example) It is much easier to learn how much your pan holds. Saves time!icon_smile.gif NO clean up of extra equipment or loss of batter left in a measuring cup!

Kakeladi is right, every one is different. You can go to BC's website and it will tell you...
