I found a recipe for cake mix extender here on CC. It said it is used for making shaped cakes.
Prepare cake as per package directions.
1 egg
1 cup flour
8oz. sour cream or yogurt
1 cup white sugar
1/3 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla or other flavoring

Hope this helps

Will this work for butter cakes though? That almost sounds like the WASC except that it doesn't have the almond in it...

Unfortunately they want it to taste JUST like the box yellow cake mix.... and I'm afraid that one will change the taste...

Thank you a whole bunch Penny icon_smile.gif

I use the DH mix, adding 4 eggs, 1 cup whole milk , 1 stick of melted butter, and 1 tab vanilla.
It's sturdy, and tastes really good-always moist.

Yes the WASC cake recipe will work and it will make a sturdy cake.
If yu don't need the extra batter, then just add 1/2 cup yogurt or sour cream to any cake mix batter. Mix and bake as usual.
