Will anyone please tell me what the cake extender consists of? I lost the recipe and I can't find it anywhere. I think it consists of the following: (Please let me know if I'm missing something, thanks!)

1c Sugar
1c Sour cream
1c Flour
1 Egg

Is this correct, wrong or do I need more? I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

well you add it to a cake mix(box) and it makes it so moist and its a great cake to use for carving

I usually omit the salt when I make my cakes with the extender simply because neither I nor anyone I have asked can taste any difference.

Im no expert but I thought it had something to do with the baking process? Not real sure...I remember someone on Food Network saying once, but darn I forget

I use a different extender recipe, but mine stays really light and porous, so not good for carving. The only difference I really see is mine calls for 2/3 cup milk vs the 1 cup of sour cream. Could that be what is making yours more dense? I need a good recipe for carving as I'm planning to try a carved cake for my daughter's birthday.

Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your post.

Cake Mix extender
Serves/Yields: 3 x 9" cakes
Prep. Time:
Cook Time:
Category: Cake Mix Cakes
Difficulty: Easy
I've used this for any cake flavour. The result is a terrific , moist and dense cake that is easy to frost and decorate. Tastes like scratch cakes. I get rave reviews everytime I make a cake. I've used it for other 18" or slab cake pans. All I do is make 2 mixes instead of the one. I make each mix individually and then stir them together in a large bowl prior to pouring in the pan.
Prepare cake mix as per package directions. In addition to this add,

1 egg
1 cup flour
250 ml (or 8 oz.) sour cream or yogurt (I prefer to use low fat yogurt)
1 cup white sugar
1/3 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla or other suited flavouring

Bake as per pkg. directions
Nutrition Information
Fat content will vary depending on whether or not you use full fat sour cream or yogurt. I've used them all including low fat sour cream, yogurt etc.... and the results are great each and every time.
