Welcome Leanne.....

I always use the weight of unbroken eggs ie; 4 eggs is approx. 8 -9 ozs

so then the same amount in SR flour, caster sugar and marg/butter plus a teasp on baking powder.

Then substituting some (rowntree's) cocoa powder for a chocolate cake....at least an ounce!

I have never used a box mix....you will find on here that the resident Americans are split in their opinion of using boxes or scratch recipes.

 

Good luck
