Stretching a cake mix
I want to bake low fat for myself but not be a hog and eat the whole cake, so I was thinking of ways to stretch a cake mix into maybe 3 parts, and thereby have more possibilities to add more low-fat ingredients on my own, like Splenda.
We discussed it here but I wanted more information, so I did an online Search and came us with this:
"CAKE MIX EXTENDER
Did you ever notice that a box cake mix doesn't really fill a 9x13" pan? Here is a tip cake decorators use to stretch the cake mix a little; add this extender to any cake mix to make a cake that is higher and lighter than a box mix alone (and it will fill a 9x13" pan or 2 9" pans!)
Use any flavor cake mix, plus all of the ingredients called for on the box.
1 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup milk or water
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp baking powder
Mix as directed on the box and bake according to directions. You may need to add 5 - 10 min to baking time because of increased volume.
NOTE: For chocolate cakes, you can substitute 1/4 cup cocoa powder for 1/4 cup of the flour."
What do you all think ?
I don't want buns of steel. I want buns of cinnamon !!!
