My apologies if this has already been discussed. If so, any links on prior discussions would be much appreciated. But, I absolutely love the WASC recipe. However, I have not ventured out of using only the Betty Crocker White Cake Mix because I'm afraid other flavors will taste too synthetic.
I'm going to test the Betty Crocker Golden Vanilla mix, however I would love to know if using the Yellow cake mix brings great results or any other flavors. I know some cake mixes have that distinct synthetic taste more than others.
So far, I've been using Lorann oils and other flavorings to the White cake mix. But, I'd love to hear if anyone has had sucess using other cake mix flavors?
Hi - I've used yellow, chocolate, and red velvet cake mixes and then doctored them to make them more dense and flavorful. I started out with Pillsbury and then tried Betty Crocker. They're both good, and I always got really good feedback.
I use nothing but Cake Mix Doctor recipes and people think they're homemade. Even the older ladies that grew up on homemade!
I only use Duncan Hines, but I do use all the flavors with the WASC recipe, and got rave reviews. sometimes I add sour cream, yogurt, and I substitute half water for half coffee creamer depending on the flavor I am making, I also puree' fresh strawberries, use fresh lemon juice and lemon zest etc.
I got many pople telling me that my lemon cake taste real good you can taste it is lemon and they have never had that before,
I also use many flavored pudding mixes. Look for the gourmet flavors thread.
synthetic?? Wow, I've never felt any of my cakes tasted synthetic. Being the originator of the WASC recipe I cannot agree w/you at all. I have used every flavor of mix on the market and never had anything but rave reviews on all of them.
Taste is soooooooo individualized - check out the thread in The Lounge about what will you not eat
Great, thank you so much for all your responses!
Kakeladi - I'm so sorry if that came off offensive. I really do LOVE your recipe because it tastes so wonderful and nothing like a stand alone cake mix cake. As a newbie to CC, I was just apprehensive on other flavors, such as strawberry, that may have a strong artificial taste from the cake mix flavoring. I have not experimented further, but definitely plan to do so after hearing that other flavors taste just as great! And, I agree with you all in that WAS does taste 100% homeade!
Thanks again for your help!
