Tips

moist cake

moist cake

To make a cake moist add 2 cups of sour cream to any Duncan Hines® cake mix.


Moist Cakes and Cupcakes

Moist Cakes and Cupcakes

To improve any box mix, substitute buttermilk for the water in the recipe and add 2 Tbl of instant pudding powder. (Chocolate pudding powder for Choc cakes, Vanilla for all other cakes). Mix and bake as usual, adding a minute or two more to the baking time. The cake will be level on top, for easier icing, and is very moist, tasting like homemade. My family can't believe the difference!
