I'm sure the cake bakers that read this will have trouble staying on their bottoms from laughing, but here it goes!!

Is it possible to prepare a pound cake batter, and prepare a regular cake mix batter, and mix them together? Has anyone ever attempted that?

I can't wait to hear the responses!! Thanks in advance!!

That sounds like an interesting idea. Not sure if I am brave enough to try it out though. icon_redface.gif

Sounds like you should you be the 1st pioneer on this one! Let us know how it comes out. I'm assuming you're trying to "marble" a pound cake and a regular cake, correct??

I think it should work. You are trying to create a firmer cake correct??

There is a member who posted awhile back that she makes a cake mix and a pound cake mix (both according to package directions) and then blends them together to make a firmer cake, but I can't remember her name.....

I did try that combo, but prefer either of the WASC cake mix recipes.

Hum...I would suggest trying a different recipe or something before mixing the two. Seems like it would throw off the chemical makeup and such of the cake (I'm not scientific, sorry). By "regular cake" i'm assuming you mean cake mix? Maybe you could just try a butter or shortening bases scratch cake recipe, because you'd likely get a cake that is moist, like the regular mix, and a bit more dense, like the poundcake, but not to that extent. I really like Serious_Cake's "yellow cake recipe" on her youtube videos. (just type that in the box, first video that pops up)
HTH, and if you do try the experiment share the results icon_smile.gif
