I would like to try your cake mix recipes and it is no longer available under the "moister layer cake" links. Both for chocolate and yellow/white. Could you please repost or email me at Thanks.

Ha....nice e-mail address d. I wouldn't ever guess you would pick that title???? Your one of the most self-composed people here!

I use Duncan Heines Mixes only. Just a couple of pointers...don't add all the liquid at the lumps out first because you might have to over mix to get it smooth. When you over mix it does change the texture (too fine).

Chocolate Cake:
1 pkg. duncan heines (devils food flavor)
1 (small)pkg. INSTANT chocolate pudding
4 eggs
1 c. H2O
1/2 c. oil

Yellow Cake:
1 pkg. duncan heines yellow cake (not butter cake)
1 pkg. (small) instant vanilla pudding
4 eggs
1 c. h2o
1/2 c. oil

You can play with flavors... for example to make an orange cake use orange juice instead of h2o and add orange rind to yellow cake batter. There are tons of easy good variations. Again, just using the above orange cake put some poppy seeds in it and bake in a bundt for a fast breakfast cake.

The white cake is different than the yellow.

White Cake:
1 pkg. Duncan Heines white cake mix
1 pkg. dream whip (it's sold near the jello items)
4 egg whites (only)
1 c. cold h20
1/2 c. oil

Currently there is a book in the stores called something like "The Cake Doctor". The whole book contains recipes using mixes. I don't own it, but when I've looked thru it there were several recipes I was familar with and am certain they are very good. When I'm over worked in the summer I have to turn to some of those quick recipes. I'm certain most chefs would be shocked at how good some of them are!

Thanks again!
