We love homemade cakes, but sometimes, time gets the better of us and we need something quick. I *love* this recipe from the MOMYS cookbook. It takes a standard cake mix and makes it “big family” size.
Birthday Cake Extender
- 1 c all purpose flour
- 1/4c sugar
- 1t baking powder
- 1/2c vegetable oil
- 2/3c water
- 1 box cake mix, your choice
Mix cake mix according to directions on the box. Add flour, sugar and baking powder to cake mix. Then add additional wet ingredients. Mix 2 1/2 minutes.
Pour into greased and floured large cake pan. The original author used an 11x15x2 pan, purchased in the cake decorating section of Wal-Mart. You could use a regular cake pan and make cup cakes with leftover batter.
Bake at temperature and time set on box or until a toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
