Who invented the cake mix?
Duff and Sons, a molasses company, pioneered the quick mix cake in the late 1920s. Continental Mills, Hills Brothers Company under the Dromedary label, Pillsbury, Occident, Ward Baking Company, and the Doughnut Corporation all produced versions of cake mixes before World War II. Problems with spoilage and packaging kept mixes from widespread acceptance. In early November 1947, after four years of cake mix research and development, General Mills' test market cities were exposed to the "Just Add Water and Mix!" for Betty Crocker's Ginger Cake followed soon after by the "Golden Cake" still available today.

Usually cake mix is meant to be a moisture cake, whereas pound cake is dense. Pound cake is easier to stack/sculpt. Cake mix usually has better flavor, whereas pound cake mix …would require a syrup to help with flavor and moisture.
Add coco Add about 3/4 cup cocoa powder to the mix.
Yes. It is one of the recommended ways to make cake pops. The results are consistent. Many professional cake poppers use cake mix as their base.
Add plain cocoa into it the unsweetened kind, you need to taste the batter, start with 1 tablespoon at a time, it can turn the batter bitter if you use too much
Yes, but be aware that white cake is usually lighter, fluffier, and weaker than a typical yellow cake is.
yes you could because you have to add oil and water anyways so it wouldn't really matter but it still wouldn't taste as good with eggs. yes you could
Well--I am going to try. The brownie cake [in a football cake pan] is in the oven. Watch here for what I used and how it turned out! OK -- here is what I used: 1 Betty Crock…er Super Moist Butter Recipe Yellow Cake Mix; 1 Betty Crocker Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix. To the combined cake/brownie mixture I added 2 cups of eggnog, 1/2 cup softened butter, 1/4 cup canola oil, and 3 eggs. I poured the batter into a football shaped cake pan about 3/4 full. [Could have been less]; the remainder of the batter I poured into 12 cupcake liners. Baked at 350 degrees. The taste is delicious. The edges of the big cake and the tops of the cupcakes got more "crisp" than I would have preferred, but the cake texture is perfect! The color is perfect for making a football cake! I just added white icing "laces" to the cake and the cupcakes. Perfect for our superbowl party! OH--why eggnog? why the combo? Post Wisconsin blizzard=no trips to the store=use what you have on hand!
well the cake mix might have flour with it so i think you don't need to add cake flour. Kitten ^.^
A cake mix you just add water,cake flour is heat treated and as different gluten content and can only be usedas a part of a scratch recipe.
Its... 2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour 1/3 cup nonfat dry milk 3 teaspoons baking powder 3/4 teaspoon salt 1 1/2 cups white sugar 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon shortening …White cake mix is a bit like icing, appearance wise.
Ok there are a few ways you can do this, but one is to find out how big the sheet cake is supposed to be, and how big a cake does one mix make? Eg, if one cake mix calls for a… standard 12in by 12in cake pan and the sheet cake desired is 18in by 36in, then three mixes would make a cake 12 X 36, leaving 6 X 36, which would require 1 1/2 more cake mixes, for a total of 4 1/2 cake mixes.
the first cake mix was invented in the 1920's before WWII but the packages spoiled so in November 1947 after 4 years general mills made the first just add water mix.
Yes, you can double the cake mix for a bigger cake. Although it will make not make the rise any higher,you can make twice as much, consider your recipe an outline for flavor a…nd quantity. Just be sure that if you double the recipe you do just that, do not substitute ingredients. (unless it's an option like butter/margerine)
A cake type of food was baked 5,000 years ago. Historians have found it in tombs in dating from ancient Egypt. Cakes, more like we back today, were made 500 years ago an…d were often very elaborate with birds, gold, and other things on it.
Once the cake is baked, on a separate pan add sugar and water. Wait till it's hot remove from heat and pour it onto the top of the cake.
I've a packet of Golden Dipt brand funnel cake mix that came from either Kroger or Cub Foods. It's at Amazon, too.
