AHello Cakers. I am 100% a from scratch baker; however, my best friend can't afford to buy a cake for a bridal shower she's throwing. She was going to make cupcakes from a box herself but I offered to do it as long as she bought the mixes. So she bought the pillsbury traditional vanilla mixes which don't have any pudding. Which cake mix extender recipe would be best for those? I've never made an extender recipe before & definitely not used to the non pudding mixes.

I am known for super moist cupcakes like when you touch them, you get butter on your finger. Does the cake mix extender yield a very moist cake? Thanks.

AI tried several doctored mix recipes without much success (they all resembled cornbread) until I tried this one that I preferred : 1 box cakeix 1 cup sifted cake flour 1 cup sugar1 tsp salt 3 tablespoon oil 1 cup eggs/egg white 1 2/3 cup milk 2 tsp vanilla Mix we'll bake at 325 for cake layers. For cup cakes maybe bump to 350 to get them to dome. The other recipes didn't have enough liquid in them for me.

Thank you. Is this in addition to the ingredients call for on the boxed mix? Really one cup eggs?

ADo not mix the cake mix as directed on the box, use these ingredients instead. If my memory serves me the egg would equal 4 large eggs. I tend to use the whites in a carton
