Duncan Hines Recipe shared by:
| Follow this Baker

This is a moist, fruity Red Velvet cake that's pure heaven. Cherries and buttermilk are the secret add-in, and the homemade icing is a special treat. For a frosting shortcut, you can always use Duncan Hines Cream Cheese Frosting.

Can I leave the raw batter out while the first batch cooks?


Curious about the mix

Curious about the mix

Just curious I, and my large family, have been using Duncan Hines mixes for many, many years. It seems to all of us that there is not enough cake mix now, or the formula has been changed or something. I bake about 100 cakes a year. The cakes do not rise like they used to and are not as thick. They look okay until you take them out of the oven and then they seem to shrink and fall. We slice the layers into to make four. cake is now kind of flat. They used to be tall!!! Help!!
