I think it is usually somewhere near the jello/pudding sections. Last week I found it there, but down on the bottom shelf, but I've also found it on the top shelf, so probably better to just ask somebody where the Dream Whip is. LOL
TC, I wouldn't say it does what the pudding does, to me pudding will make a cake more dense and probably sweeter, I don't think the powdered whip does that, maybe just makes it smoother. LMK what you think if you try it. Janice
I haven't forgot to post the recipe.. I truly looked for it, however I moved to a new home not too long ago & the recipe is not where I thought I left it
Promise as soon as it shows up I will post it on this same forum.
I tried looking in past forum where I originally found it (sometime in Apr) it was on one of those topics scratch vs mix, but no luck either
I've always baked from scratch. I hated box mixes until I found this site and started using the extender recipe. I can doctor up a cake mix that taste like scratch by adding sour cream,milk instead of water, 1/4 cup soft butter along with 1/4 cup oil and real vanilla. Sometimes I add a whole stick of soft butter and the oil. I made the Almond pound cake recipe in the CMD book but used milk instead of water and the 1/4 oil and 1/4 butter. Everyone thiks the cake is from scratch. I've tried all the mixes and DH is the best and taste more homemade. The other mixes tasted kind of chemical to me.
1 box white cake mix
1 box vanilla instant pudding
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup water + 2 Tbsp
1 pkg soft cream cheese
1 tsp vanilla
¾ cup oil
Grease & flour two 9pans.
Stir together first 3 ingredients. Make a well in the centre & add the rest of the ingredients. Mix for 4 mins. Bake in preheated oven at 325 for at least 30 mins, check every 5 or 10 mins after until fully baked.
Like others, I add an extra egg, a box of instant pudding, and substitute milk (or buttermilk) for the water. After reading this post though, I'm going to try subbing the oil with butter. Sour cream sounds good too.
For those of you who add Sour Cream, how much do you add and is it in addition to other ingredients or does it replace something else?
Keep on swimming... If at first you don't succeed...try, try again.
