what's the best doctored vanilla cake mix recipe out there?? - Page 3

post #31 of 39

I'm going to give the dissenting opinion here about WASC and cupcakes.  I really don't like it for cupcakes, and I have posted about this before.  The texture is completely different when made into cupcakes, so I think it works better for cakes.  If I'm doing free cupcakes, I'll just do the recipe straight from the box, and cut the water down a bit so the cupcakes are denser.

I agree about the cupcakes, they come out super dense and are not the same as the cake at all.

For those of you who do like it for cupcakes, could you please advise as to how long they should bake for and at what temperature? 

 

Thanks!

I'm excited to use the WASC 'original' for my cupcakes !~ dense wedding cake is kinda what I'm going for for cupcakes. I've been reading a ton on here... don't know what the extender recipe is but I think the WASC is the one I'm going to try in all sorts of variations.

 

Thank you everyone for the input & insight.

agreed, it's not great for cupcakes.  Hadn't thought about cutting down the water, sounds right though.  I'll try that myself.

I'm curious about this too. Any comments?

You can use the same quantity for the ingredients for any size box.
