Can Cake Mix go Bad/expire?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
icon_cry.gif I had stocked up on my cake mixes last year when there was a big sale, I wasn't watching and rotating my stock as closely as I thought, I have 5 boxes of cake mix that says use by October 2006. Do cake mixes go bad? Or can I still use these?
THANKS! for any replys! icon_biggrin.gif

Hmmm. I don't know if there's anytihng in the mix that will "go bad", but chances are they won't rise as well as they normally would. here's a bump...

I think you'll be fine.

I don't believe cake mix ever expires. It just isn't as good for baking after the date on the box, hence, "best if used by".
Why is it that the first time you do research, it is re-search, rather than just search?

If it has baking soda in it - that can go bad. If you cake won't rise that may be the problem. You can add fresh baking soda but be careful - too much could effect the taste.
