Tips

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!!


Removal from silicone bakeware

Removal from silicone bakeware

Removal from silicone bakeware is easy if you do this before baking. Spray pan with a non stick spray then put a C of white or brown sugar in the pan evenly coat pan with sugar. Put mix in then pan bake as directed. Then let cooked cake or bread cool in oven for 15 min in the pan, Before removing from the pan make sure the cake is very cool turn over and an out it come.
