I love the texture of the grocery store cakes,they seem to be really dense with a very tight crumb. Does anyone have a recipe that is comparable to that? I generally use variations of the WASC but wanted to experiement with something new this weekend. Thanks for any help

I don't know if it helps you, but I use:
1 box mix
1 c sour cream
1 box complimentary flavored pudding
4 eggs
1/2 c oil
1/2 cup water (unless it's chocolate cake, then I add coffee)
It makes a moist dense cake...

I do the same but add 1/2 c. melted butter instead of the oil. I have not tried adding the pudding.....is that what makes it denser?

Thanks,

It is any flavor that would compliment the flavor of the cake. Such as using chocolate pudding in a chocolate cake.

And do you follow the directions on the cake box as far as time? I'm making a 14" x 14" x 2" cake.
