I use the WASC recipe for everything!! It's perfect, IMO. I just vary the cake mix flavors and extracts, and use flavored coffee creamers in place of half of the water. I also add a box of pudding mix.

You will get tons of different answers on this ?. People who scratch bake swear they have the best cakes around and those of us who are mmix users say we have the besticon_smile.gif
Of course I use my *original* WASC recipe for 95% of my baking.
I have only found one scratch recipe that I liked and it was for high elevations (I was living at 8500 ft at the time).

So far I have done all scratch baking, but I am dying to try the WASC recipe. I think I'll do so this weekend. For a chocolate cake, I really love the recipe from the Confetti Cakes cookbook.

I use mixes, doctored mixs, and scratch recipes depending on what I need. I don't like to limit myself to just one type.
