I've seen batter charts for cake pans using "from scratch" batter and stating batter cup sizes. Does anyone know where I can find a chart that states how many "boxes" of store bought cam mixes is needed for diffferent size cake pans?
Or does every box of cake mix yield the same amount of cake batter in cup measurements?
thanks

Every brand of cake mix is different as well as flavors.

I find that even within the same brand of mix the different flavours give different yields. As do different doctoring recipes. What I've done is as I make a recipe for the first time I measure and record how much batter I get from it and so now I have my own chart.

Thank you. I was worried it wold be like that---nothing easy like a good already completed guide chart. I better get a copy book out.

I can give you somewhat of an idea. I use Betty Crocker or Pillsbury cake mixes.

6" round - 1 cake mix for 2 layers
8" round - 1 cake mix for 1 layer
10" round - 1 1/2 cake mixes for 2 layers (mix up two boxes and use leftover batter for cupcakes)
12" round - 2 cake mixes for each layer
14" round - 3 cake mixes for each layer
16" round - 4 cake mixes for each layer

Square cakes use pretty much the same amount. Also, these amounts are for regular 2" pans sold by Wilton and not the typical pans for household use.

I have been using an 8"x3" round Wilton Celebrate pan and it can take 1 Duncan Hines box mix. It crowned a lot though :(
