Wanted opinions and experiences on your Cake Mix Batters.

I have seen post about adding pudding and eggs to cake mix batters.

Wondering which way do most do. What is the difference in the batter and decorating the cake.

I ususally dont add and extra egg but I always add pudding. I find my cakes to be a little more moist and dense. I like that because my cake is not cumbly at all.

I've added both the pudding and extra egg to mine before and it comes out great... there are so many different things one can add to cake mixes; sour cream, butter.. it's really limitless .. there are so many wonderful recipes in the recipe section too .. I love looking at all of them; however, after looking at them all, I almost need a bib from salivating!! icon_biggrin.gif

I always add an extra egg and pudding. I usually don't put extra pudding in cake mixes that already have pudding in the mix but that does not mean you can't. My cake teachers usually add a 1/4 cup of flour. I have not tried that but I have tasted their cakes and they are pretty good.

Did just that this past thursday to a cake i baked. I used duncian hines white moist cake mix. it was the mix that already had pudding, but I added 1 box of vanilla pudding and an egg to it. The cake was wonderful!
The cake was a two tier and it held up well.


I have been told you can add mayo!!! My husband's mamaw does it.
Her cakes are great! I think it sounds nasty so I won't do it to my cakes.

OK, ignorant question here ... when you all say to add pudding and an egg, do you mean to add the dry pudding mixture and an egg? Or do we make up the batch of pudding - cool it - and then add it to the cake batter?

I told you it was an ignorant question icon_biggrin.gif

okay...another question..
When people add an egg....are they adding an extra egg when a box cake mix usually calls for 3 eggs? So would that mean that they are using 4 eggs?

Thanks!

The extra egg gives the cake more structure, stability and helps the cake rise a little more, especially if you add additional ingredients such as pudding, sour cream, additional milk.

Are you guys talking about a large box of pudding, or a small one?

I used a regular box of pudding.

Yeah, I guess there is only one size box of pudding. For some reason I was thinking there was a large and small, maybe I'm thinking of jello, or instant pudding or something.

The reason for this is to help keep the cake from crumbling? Makes it more firm?

Thanks!

Kelrak, actually there are two sizes for instant pudding; I use the smaller, 4 serving size in my cakes. Don't know enough about the science to tell you why it works, but it definitely adds to the taste and texture. icon_lol.gif

Hello all,

I have a question I hope someone can answer for me.
On a 12x18 cake (using cake mix) how many boxes of pudding & eggs should I use? I'm doing 2 of this size cakes and would like to add pudding to the mix, but I'm not sure of how much pudding I should add.
Mmmm, is it done yet?
