Sheet Cake using Cake mix and Pudding and Sour cream - Help with instructions please!

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hello!

 

I have made the cake mix/pudding/sour cream and eggs mix before many times using the 9x13 pan and my round cake pans.   Love the way it tastes and it works well.

 

However, I am at a point where I need to use my new sheet cake pan for the very first time (nervous!) and am scared on many levels.  1. I will put parchment down on the bottom to be sure it won't stick so that's alleviated.    2. I'm not sure how many batches of the pudding cake mix concoction to put into a full sheet   3. since the pan size is so much different, I don't know how long to bake it and at what temp.   

 

I also heard that sheets tend to not cook through in the middle due to the size of the pan and or you have to cook so long that the edges get overcooked.  I've heard of using flower nails but I will have to see if I have any metal ones. 

 

I am going to be leaving for the store soon to get supplies and need to start baking by early this afternoon.  the cake is due for Saturday morning, and I need to finish it tomorrow.

 

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

 

Tina

Ok.....That is what most of us call a "half sheet' pan.   My magic line pan is a 12x18.    You will need to use  2 batches of the WASC recipe.   I use a flower nail in the center of my half sheets. I use a commercial (gas) convection oven and bake at 325.   I would recommend baking at 325, but your baking time will depend on your oven.

Thank you!  I wonder if the pudding/sourcream mix will be ok?  I am going to be carving my cake and need one that's fairly dense and moist ..

I use a pudding/sour cream recipe and carve all the time.   I fill, crumb coat and chill over night before I start carving.

ok maybe I should have clarified my question :)  when I looked up the WASC recipe - it doesn't list using pudding so I wasn't sure?  this is the recipe I generally use:  http://www.ehow.com/how_4868568_add-pudding-cake-mix.html
 

this is the WASC recipe I saw on here: (never used it before):


http://cakecentral.com/recipe/the-original-wasc-cake-recipe

 

I usually do use the first recipe for carving - so I guess my question is if I am looking at the right WASC recipe?  since it didn't have pudding I am not sure if this is the one you have used or not.

 

thank you so much again!! :)

My WASC recipe has "pudding in the mix".  Duncan Hines & Pillsbury already have pudding in their mixes.    Betty Crocker does not add pudding to their mix, so you would have to add it.
