Cake Mix Extenders

Use these extenders for higher and lighter cakes. Boxed cake mixes used to contain 18.25 ounces. They now contain around 16 ounces. Some of your older recipes will not turn out the same now unless they are extended. Here are two extenders from which to choose.

Regular Cake Mix Extender

1 box cake mix (any flavor)

3/4 cup flour

1/4 cup sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup water

1/4 cup oil

Pudding Cake Mix Extender

1 box cake mix (any flavor)

1 cup flour

1 cup sugar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 small box instant pudding (flavor of choice)

1 egg

1/2 cup water

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Prepare cake mix per package directions.

Combine remaining ingredients and add to batter, incorporating well.

Pour into a greased 9 x 13-inch pan and bake per package directions, adding 15 extra minutes to baking time.
