Is it just me or has DH cake mix become unreliable? ? I have used DH for many years. It is the only mix I ever use. But lately it is not very good sometimes. One time it is wonderful, the next time it may have poor texture or not be what I call quality cake. I made one yesterday and the batter was liquidy. It had a June /'10 expiration date. It was not soft and fuffy like it is suppose it be. Have they changed formula again?? Have any of you having the same probem??
I haven't noticed any difference.
I haven't noticed anything either as this is the only brand I use.
I only use DH too, and didn't notice a difference as of yet.
I would contact DH myself, and file a complaint about it. At the very least they will offer a reimbursement for the boxes that you bought.
I have gotten a few boxes lately that weren't sealed properly,the plastic bag inside.I emailed the company and they sent me coupons to replace them.I did bake one because I thought since the outside box was sealed good and it didn't seem tampered with ,it would be ok,it wasn't ,it tasted horrible and had the texture of a sponge,not cake.I can't remember how it looked when mixing it but I'm wondering if this might have been your problem too?If you still have the box you should let them know.
No problems here, that is the brand of choice for me.
i have had a bad DH mix 3 times over the last year and 1/2. i just chalk it up to the fact that out of the millions of boxes they make there's bound to be a few bad ones. nothing is 100% perfect 100% of the time. just had a strawberry mix a couple weeks ago that didn't look right in the mixing bowl and then didn't bake up very tall and was a puffy crumbly mess when i tried to cut it in to slices even tho there were no other changes in a recipe that i use all the time. but i will continue to buy them cos for 99% of the time i don't have an issue and i personally like the taste better than the other brands. i have started using 1 DH and 1 BC for my WASC recipes.
Every time i use DH in the WASC recipe, I get big craters. More so with chocolate. If i use one box DH & one box BC, no problems.
I did want to add that other than the occassional unsealed bag,I don't have any other problems and this is the only brand I use.I love the flavor of pillsbury but it is too moist for my carved cakes.
DH is only available here in devils food and white, so I mainly use BC for other flavors..
good to know that I can use 1 each when making WASC.
thanks for the tip!
