4.5 cup in a mix.

Make up the cake mix extender too and you will have plenty for this pan.

Cake Mix Extender

Add to any cake mix to make it equal 1.5x the batter amount.

1 cup flour ( I use cake flour, but all purpose will work too)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg
1/2 cup water

Thanks for the extender recipe. I now have it tucked safely away in my notebook for future reference!

Nope.....it doesn't dilute it and lose taste at all. It adds height to your cake.

Now keep in mind the 4.5 cups is just straight batter only and NO ADDITIONS to it. If you decide say for example you want to add chocolate chips to your batter then you will come up with approximately 5 cups of batter.

Oh and ladies......

I have learned allot over the years and am not afraid to share. I am just here to help if I can. I don't know everything, but I try to help when I can.

Duncan Hines Yellow mix yields 5 cups batter. Pillsbury yellow yields 4 cups and Pillsbury chocolate yeilds 4-1/2 cups batter. Measure your batter and write this down somewhere, so you have a reference to look back on. I would be lost without my precious notes.

Thank you for the tip! I thought I had two cake mixes, but only have one. I wasnt sure that one would be enough, I am doing a 14" round. I don't want it to be super tall because it is not going to be serving a lot of people, but I need the surface area for the decoration plan...

I think I am going to add a dash of cocoa powder as well since I am making a chocolate cake, and I don't want to loose the chocolate flavor with the extention... thanks!

Add a little coffee to the batter to intensify the taste. 1 box of mix with the extender will make a thin layer in a 14" pan (not 2") FYI.

Are these measurements for the new reduced cake mixes from DH and BC?

The initial posts are 2.5 years old, so they would be the 18.5oz boxes of mix.

You can still use the extender. It will just have new volumes with the smaller cake mix sizes.
