Hi all. Can I get some info on cake extenders? From browsing the internet, there were comments that cake extenders help keep a cake flat. I need to make a 13 * 9 cake without a bulge in the middle. I've also run across numerous variations for extenders. Do all these variations work? Is there one that works better than others?
One extender I found calls for instant pudding. So, if I have a cake recipe that calls for a cake mix and pudding, do I get a second box of pudding for the cake extender? Kind of confusing.
What I'm trying to do is make a 13 * 9 "flat" pumpkin cake with a no-bake pumpkin cheesecake on top of that and a no-bake pumpkin pie on top of that.
p.s. How do I get an Avatar? Can't seem to post one. Specific size or something?
If you use my recipe here: http://www.cakecentral.com/recipe/7445/the-original-wasc-cake-recipe , following all the hints, baking instructions etc you will get a perfect, flat, 9x13 cake. There will be no bulge/hump in the middle. BUT,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
you CANNOT serve this cake/pie combination without inviting me to sample it 1st ! LOL
Don't know about avatars.
Thanks for the help. How would this cake go with adding instant pudding to the mix? I need to add a box of pumpkin pudding for flavor along with extra pudding for use as a "poke cake." It gets complicated.
Here is my recipe which has a box of pudding.
one box vanilla cake mix
one cup flour
one cup sugar
one cup sour cream
1/3 cup oil
one box vanilla instant pudding
½ cup of milk
