I'm a Betty Crocker girl!!! My Dad worked for General Mills for 45+ years so I have never used another mix and wouldn't. Just wish we got more flavour selection at the stores. LOL

I prefer the tate of Duncan Hines. And it seems to give me the most batter.

It depends on what flavor I'm using

Chocolate- BC and DH combined
Yellow and Vanilla-BC
Strawberry and Red Velvet-DH

Hand down, Betty Crocker works the best for me when I use the WASC recipe. I haven't had luck with Duncan Hines or Pillbury using the WASC.

I have used Duncan Hines for years. I loved it. The cake is so light and moist. However, about 6 months ago, I noticed a difference. The batter seems more watery. I think they changed something. I noticed the cupcakes spill over instead of rising with nice rounded crowns. The cake seems to fall apart. So, I've switched to Pillsbury.

I'm a tried and true Pillsbury fan. I started using DH when I started reading how many people prefer it on CC. My cakes started to go downhill from there, and I couldn't figure out why. After about 5 disasters, I realized it must be because I had been using Duncan Hines. Went back to Pillsbury and all problems stopped. Never again will I switch. icon_biggrin.gif

DH is the best but BC is a very close 2nd!
