It was too late. I had waited only long enough for the quick replies as I was in a hurry to get baking. I had to finish the cake for 10am and it was about 8pm last night (whoops). I keep a ton of box mixes because I buy in bulk when they go on sale, and thought that I had more yellow mixes... WRONG! I don't generally like trying new recipes for the first time on a customer but figure it was Colette's recipe so it couldn't be too bad.
Well, after using 1 cup of cake and 1 cup of all purpose and following the recipe, the batter looked kind of weird. I thought maybe it was just myself and that the brown sugar was supposed to be kind of seperated out, but 3/4's of the way through baking I looked in the oven and knew it wasn't right. So off to the grocery store at 9pm to buy a mix so I could just get home and get it done.
Oh well... from scratch seemed like a good idea at the time! Now with as tired as I am I have decided to stick to what I know when in a pinch for time!
