My husband is losing weight left and right, and here I am wanting to bake him a cake, doesn't sound very supportive, I know! But to be fair it is Father's Day and I want to make just a one tier 6" Pillsbury yellow cake mix. I know the entire box calls for 1 cup water, 1/3 cup oil and 3 eggs, but how much for a single 6" x 2" pan? Should I just 1/3 the ingredients?
i'd suggest making the whole mix and use leftover batter to bake cupcakes. Throw them in a zip lock bag and freeze for a future, portion controlled craving fix.
I suggest using 1/2 the box mix using the extra batter for cuppies as the other poster said. It is much easier than trying to come up w/just the right amount of batter for one 6" layer. If you have more than one 6" pan, bake 2 and cuppies, fzing them.
Oh, forgot to mention you only need to use 1 egg, 3T oil, and 1/2 cup liquid for 1/2 the box. And to help just a bit instead of using oil, replace it w/applesauce (or any fruit puree).
I think you're right, I'll just make 1/2 the mix and see where it takes me! Thanks!
