Just purchased some DH pink velvet cake mix as it was on sale. Have used DH in the past & used it in a "doctored" recipe (extra egg, 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar & sour cream), but have never used this variety. It calls for softned butter, not oil & the box is slightly smaller, (468g, as opposed to the other varieties that are 515g). Has anyone used this variety in a doctored recipe & had success? Wondering if I should follow the cake mix extender recipe on this site and add part of a box to the box to make up the weight to 515g. I know that I can get an answer from the talented bakers on CC. Thanks in advance.
I would just follow the regular WASC recipe for it.
let me know how it goes, I have seen that variety of cake in my local grocery outlet and was wondering if it tastes good.
Thank you. Anyone else tried this product?
Unless you're making a cake larger than 8", don't worry about adding part of another box and just add your usual extras. Use the same amount of oil you normally use. I add 1/2 tsp almond flavoring and 1 tsp vanilla. Mixes are usually fairly forgiving so you'll be ok.
I saw some on sale at the local dollar store (not a great sign of future success for the product...) I went ahead and purchased 3 and promptly forgot them at a relative's house. I use DH mixes exclusively when possible for my dry cake base, then add all sorts of extra ingredients to doctor-it-up.
