Hi everyone.....I've just posted a recipe that I've used for a number of years under the boxed cake mixes tab. This recipe guarantees a dense and moist cake each and every time. I've never been disappointed and thought I would share for those who might want to try it. Enjoy icon_smile.gif

I am having difficulty locating your recipe. There are so many different recipes listed under enhanced cake mixes. Could you give me some help locating it.
Thank You

I couldn't find it either! I posted under cake mixes , but it's not there. In any event, here it is:

Mix any flavour cake mix (with or without pudding) as per package directions. To this add:

1 cup flour,
1 cup white sugar,
1tsp. salt
500 ml. sour cream or yogurt
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla or other cake flavouring

Mix above with prepared cake mix & bake as per pkg. instructions. This will make 3 x 9" pans rather than 2.

I've used this recipe for a long time and am never disappointed. It tastes like a moist, dense scratch cake. I have used both full and low fat yogurt or sour cream and get great results everytime. I have doubled this up (i recipe at a time) for sheet cakes. Just make sure to use the baking strips. I get rave reviews each time. Hope it's as successful for you as well. Happy baking icon_biggrin.gif

I meant to convert from metric to imperial and forgot. For those accustomed to the imperial measurements, 500 ml. = 2 cups. Happy baking icon_biggrin.gif

Yes...you definitely have to prepare the cake mix as per package directions. (usually 3 eggs, oil and water). In addition to that you would add the other ingredients I've listed. Hope no one has tried it with just one egg yet....could be pretty dry tapedshut.gif

Just wondering... is this cake flour, self rising flour, or all purpose flour. I was hoping to try this today, so if anyone knows... please answer quick!

i have one that I use without sourcream.

One cake mix
one cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
tsp vanilla
tsp baking powder
1 egg
.5c water (or milk)
if box says 1/3 c oil increase to 1/2

I mix all the dry ingredients togther then add the rest. You still follow the box directions and add the additional ingredients on the list. Adding the fourth egg make a heavier cake, but it is still super moist. If you want a lighther cake just omit the extra egg.

I use this one becaue I dont bake with sour cream most of the time. My results from this extender are still a supermoist cake.

cakeconfections, The recipe calls for two TBS of oil... so how much will I use? I just tried the other recipe and that batter taste great, but the cake didn't bake up very high. I'm trying them all to get to a perfect white cake.

You can still use a 1/2 cup if you would like. I always use a 1/2 of oil (i use butter) in all my reciepes no matter what it says. I always have good results.
