Yikes....I've never really measured, but I've made it many times and know that one cake mix + extender will make exactly 1 round 10 x 3 " pan (my notes on that pan = 8 cups batter). I've made it a gazillilion times for a 12 x 18" sheetcake and always use 2 cake mixes + extender (per cake mix). I would say it equals 8 cups. HTH....Happy baking icon_smile.gif

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.



I used this extender last night in a yellow cake mix, and it was the perfect amount for my 10 x3" deep round pan. The only issue I have is it makes the cake taste like a white cake (ie tastes like flour.) Any suggestions to not have that white cake flour taste? (Oh, I also added a box of Instant Vanilla pudding mix)

Thanks for any tips.

i have another question about your cake extender. Do you add any coco or anything extra if you are making a chocolate cake for more flavor. Thank you, laanne

I also tried this one with a DH devil's food cake and I added a little bit (maybe a few tablespoons) of Hershey's Cocoa...the cake turned out great...I don't generally like chocolate cake mixes but this one was really good, I was impressed. You could taste the cocoa and it was really good. I tried this recipe on a yellow cake too, but it turned out too floury tasting and dense to me.

Does the cake need to be refridgerated if it has the yogert/sour cream in it? I make a butter pecan cake with it and it tasted sour like buttermilk pancakes...yuck icon_cry.gif
