How many servings does a box (Duncan Hines or similar) cake mix serve? I'm looking to make a cake for a birthday party but am unsure how much cake I need for the amount of people who will be attending the party.
Thanks for your help, Christina
The box mixes usually average 4 1/2 to 5 cups of batter, depending on what size cake pan you are using the servings vary. There are baking guides available to use that show how much batter to use in certain size of pans. I went to another website and printed out this guide, very helpful.
Look on the inside of your Duncan Hines box. There should be a chart there that will help you.
I USED TRE BOXES AND I BAKE 1/2 SHEET IF I DO A FUL SHEE T I DO 6 BOXES IN TWO DIFFERENT PANs. BUT I DONT KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE YOU INVITING.
