I usually use Duncan Hines or Betty Crocker for my WASC but Pillsbury is on sale for only .88.  Just wondering if anyone uses that brand and it turns out ok.

That is the only brand I buy because it is usually the cheapest.  Everyone always seems to like the flavors.

I've been experimenting with an extender recipe from this site, and since I don't have any favorite cake mix brand (I kind of dislike them all equally), I tried it using white mixes from Betty Crocker, Duncan Hines, & Pillsbury...

 

 

Pillsbury kicked their a$$es...

I uses mixes once in awhile and Pillsbury is my go to with Betty Crocker as my second choice. I think it bakes nicely and tastes pretty good too.

It's a cake recipe that begins with a regular box mix and you "extend" it by adding ingredients not called for on the back of the box...

 

The one I was referring to requires sour cream, melted butter, flour, heavy cream, to name a few...
