This cake recipe is the maximum quantity for your 5 quart mixing bowl. It mixed up perfect in my Kitchen Aid Accolade. It yielded 15 1/2 cups cake batter.
2 Duncan Hines Butter Recipe cake mixes (I guess you could use any flavor)
2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 Cups Sugar
4 Sticks Butter (I used half butter, half margarine)
2 2/3 cups water
1 box French Vanilla Pudding Mix (instant)
2 tsp Baking Powder
Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs, mix until blended. Add cake mix, pudding, flour and baking powder. Blend on low while drizzling in water in a thin stream. Mix until smooth (doesn't take long), and bake according to directions for your pan size. I had to share this because it turned our so good. I hope someone else enjoys!!

I tried the chocolate with a couple different brands, got the best results with Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix.
I love WASC, but recently tried this version from the wilton site (uses butter instead of sour cream basically) and i actually prefer the texture of this recipe. The taste is quite comparable! And i prefer the taste of the chocolate version of this cake to the chocolate WASC. JMO. But I still really love WASC too.
