Can I make a spice cake from a box white mix?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I need to make a cake and really do not want to go back out to the store for a spice cake mix, does anyone know how to turn a white cake mix into spice cake of some sort ? I checked the recipes section but didnt see anything helpful, unless I missed it.
Any help will be appreciated icon_smile.gif

Yup! I always make a pumpkin spice cake with a white cake mix... but assuming you don't have canned pumpkin or pumpkin pie pudding around the house.. the easiest way to make it is by just using your typical cake mix extenders and use a mixture of these spices.. or your favorite spices.

2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

I hope that helps!!

I just made a spice cake from a white cake a couple of weeks ago when I was a layer short on one of my cakes. The layer made from the white cake (plus spices) tasted exactly the same as the spice cake did....even my husband couldn't tell which was which, and spice cake is his favorite.
