HELP!!! Duncan Hines or Betty Crocker. Which cake mix do you guys prefer AND why???? I'm trying to find a good cake mix.
When it comes to a mix, I prefer Duncan Hines. It's a little bit sweeter and the texture is nicer. I used Betty Crocker one time, and no one in the family liked it.
Duncan Hines...I think it rises better than Betty Crocker.
I am on the fence about this one. Up until recently, all I used was Duncan Hines. It is moist and everyone seems to like it. I have been trying out Betty Crocker since I am getting ready to make a cake in which the tiers tilt. I am testing to see if Betty Crocker is denser, therefore hopefully helping provide structure with the tilted cake.
I have made the german chocolate and that funfetti cake mix from Betty Crocker. They do appear denser. Everyone said they liked the taste of the cakes... but boy do I love Duncan Hines german chocolate!
I always make the WASC (or a variation of it), and use Duncan Hines with it, mainly because it's usually a few cents cheaper than Betty Crocker. I've had excellent results with both, though. The ONE situation where I absolutely HAVE to have Duncan Hines, is when I'm making a dark chocolate cake. The Betty Crocker Dark Chocolate Fudge mix is so much lighter in color than the DH, I can't stand it! I also absolutely MUST have the right pudding brand for this as well, for the same reason (some brands just don't make their chocolate puddings dark enough!).
I've used both and prefer Betty Crocker. In our grocery stores, the prices are about the same. But Target carries the basic (choc, white, yellow) Betty Crocker mixes for $1.09 - less than half the price at other local groceries. So I'm using exclusively Betty Crocker from Target for my WASC recipes.
DH----only because it yields more batter than the rest.
I prefer Pillsbury.
For WASC, DH even though it is rarely on sale and more money than BC
duncan hines all the way.. never use anything else
Duncan Hines for me
Duncan Hines for me too. Super moist and it seems to taste better too.
I refuse to buy anything but Duncan Hines....
Duncan Hines for me too! I just bought 20 boxes from my local HY Vee store. Thay have it on sale for 89 cents a box!
Guess I'm the odd baker out! I've doctored Betty Crocker mix for nearly 40 years and my customers love it.
I too love Betty Crocker. I use the Duncan Red Velvet but have always loved my results with Betty.
I only use mix when doing wasc and I use betty crocker. The main reason is that here most duncan hines mixes have a nut warning on them but bc do not. We have a few friends with allergies so as a general rule i don't use products with nut warnings.
