I always use the WASC method which is essentially a cake mix extender and have never had a problem.

There are a couple different variations of the extender out there, but I use this one and haven't had any problems with using it and DH

3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup oil
1 egg

Add 1/4-1/3 of cocoa for Chcolate Mixes

I always use DH, and haven't had any problems (using Rebecca Sutterby's or kakeladi's Original WASC recipes). icon_smile.gif

Ditto here on the DH mix. I used to use Pillsbury, but found out DH yielded more batter and switched. What is your extender recipe?
