Yield: Three 9-inch rounds
Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 40 min
I used this recipe to make cupcakes plus a small 6-inch two-layer cake for a wedding client. The cake was really easy to work with and was quite delicious. I'm not one to ever use boxed cake mixes, but the added ingredients changed the flavor and made it very good, very moist.
1 box white cake mix (I use Duncan Hines Moist)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated white sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups water
2 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup sour cream (use regular or light)
4 large egg whites
1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease and flour your desired pans. It's easiest to get the cake out of the pan if you line them with parchment paper too.
2. In a large bowl, whisk together cake mix, flour, sugar and salt. Add remaining ingredients and beat with hand mixer for 2 minutes, or until well blended.
3. Pour batter into prepared pans. Be sure to fill them 3/4 to 1-inch below the top of the pan. Bake about 35 to 50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Watch closely- check after 35 minutes and then every 5 minutes until they test done. Time will vary based on which pans you choose to use.
*Add 1 teaspoon of almond extract (in addition to the vanilla) if you wish to have a different flavor.
*You can also use this mix to make cupcakes. Pour into cupcake liners and bake for about 18 minutes. It will make about 36 cupcakes.
*The frosting used in the picture above was the Wedding Cake Buttercream.
*I've made this into a 3-layer cake and also into a large 14-inch round cake too!
