convert to non mix =cake mix + instant pudding

December 1, 2011 - 11:49am -- dolcebaker

Looking at some recipes for home, trying to convert to non-mix type I noticed a lot have a cake mix + instant pudding.  Thinking about home made pudding... I am not sure what the quality in 'instant pudding' is adding to the mix for the desired effect?  

If I use my own recipe for cake, what would I need to add to get the same outcome as adding a package of  'instant pudding' ?

What can I substitute for a cake mix???

June 9, 2009 - 4:00pm -- lezlishoemaker

I have a few recipes from my mother-in-law, who I always thought baked from scratch... Come to find out that EVERY SINGLE ONE of her ecipes start with "1 yellow cake mix" or "1 white cake mix"


The problem with this is that I don't recall ever buying a cake mix. I am 25 and grew up baking with my grandmother, who never used a cake mix. I have every other ingredient you could want to make 30 or more cakes, but no CAKE MIX!!!


Can anyone please tell me how to substitute this ingredient?!?
