Hi, i have been looking at some new recipes to try out. Some of the recipes it says that you need cake box mix. Is that a box you buy from the super market. e.g. vanilla sponge mix. Sorry for sounding dumb, but everybody is so helpful here and i have learned so much. I haven't got a
clue what it means.
Thanks icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

The Duncan Hines classic white cake mix is 18.25 oz. or 517 g:

Here are the instructions (if you were going to make the straight standard box mix just to give you a reference point as to how much batter it yields) with different pan sizes and baking times:

I wasn't really recommending that specific brand. icon_lol.gif

I just wanted you to see the size of the package as I'm not sure your packets are as large. (And if not, then you would need to use more than one per WASC recipe or other doctored cake mix recipe.) thumbs_up.gif

The box mix based recipes are designed to work with mixes widely available in the US, which are not the same as the sponge cakes used in the UK.
