Tips

bundt cake recipes

bundt cake recipes

You can use any cake mix except pound cake or angel food. Add 1 sm pkg INSTANT pudding (not cook 'n serve) 4 large eggs, 1/2 cup water 1/2 cup vegetable oil and 1 cup sour cream. Be a little different. Use ANY flavor pudding with ANY flavor cake mix. Try pistachio pudding with chocolate marble and add a half-cup chopped blanched almonds. Or add butter-scotch pudding to spice or carrot cake. Use a heavy-gauge bundt pan for best result, but aluminum bundt pans or ordinary tube pans will work

Hey guys... I have discovered another way to make your cakes more fluffy. What I do is I never put my mix in the bowl first. I put in all my liquid ingredience first: water, eggs, and oil. I start out slowly to blend these items, then I do a hard mix. I always use my wire whisk, too. What happens is you get a frothy look, which means you're adding air to the liquids. Once frothy, I add the mix. Works VERY well. Rises higher too! Try it!
