There is not anything in this cake that would make it that way.. that is strange that is for the most part the way I make cakes...

Would you happen to have a photo of this cake when its been cut??? Meaning one of the ones that they say is crumbly???

its too late tonight to make this cake but I will and then see what it does...


How are you baking this?? Temp and how long???

Ok I have one in the oven right now....


The only thing I can see right now is that a box calls for 1 1/4 cups water and this recipe is only doing 1 cup milk so its a 1/4 cup short... Batter is a bit thicker then normal....

Also a box calls for 1/3 cup oil and the recipe is calling for 1 stick of butter a bit more oil but not sure that would matter cause I have used a full stick of butter before in mixes...

So WERE going to have to wait till it comes out of the oven...

I can't wait to see what happens. It's weird because it's not dry crumbly, it's moist and so yummy. It just has so many crumbs!

Mine did the same thing... I think that its cause there is not enough liquid in the mix.... I am going to make another today or tomorrow with the what I think should be the right amount of liquid... and see what happens... Your right its not a dry crumbly but to me the outer sides of the cake was dry but the inside was just moist as can be.... I am going to play with this... My friend that is here for the weekend agress that its not enough liquid... Will see.... its also a bit more butter then what the box calls for... Box calls for 1/3 cup and with a full stick of butter your doing a 1/2 cup and the liquid is 1 cup and should be 1 1/4 cups liquid... The batter is supper thick compared to other....
