It came out really well . Completely baked. Went it to look at it cooling at it had sunk in the middle. Quite a bit. Why caused this?

Did you adjust for the fact that the boxes of cake mix are now smaller than the original WASC recipe used?

No. I haver made it before with the size and they came out perfectly. Little bit of a mystery.

The original WASC recipe is designed for the 18.25 oz. boxes of cake mix.

If your boxes were the new, 16.5 oz. size, that dry ingredient would be off by about 10%--and your other added ingredients would be OVER by about 10%.

That's enough to have too much sugar, too much fat, and too much liquid and that equals a sunken cake.

When they changed the box mixes, I decided to make cakes from scratch only. I can tell you, i am enjoying trying all these new recipes that i have been making.
