Betty Crocker Mixes

The product makes a smaller cake than a regular box of Betty Crocker. Instead of spending the extra money to buy a second one, does anyone have any mix-ins they use to stretch the mixture to a larger pan.

I used to use the cake mix doctors book with plain cakes to jazz them up.

This wouldn't make it any larger, but it would make a good pineapple upside-down cake.

I folded egg whites in to make it a little fluffier and also added a little extra baking powder. Then I sliced into two sections and made a cream filling to put in between and on top with some fresh fruit. It was much tastier than the first one I made with regular icing. I might try that pineapple upside down cake idea next

I have never made one but how about a dump cake (I think that is what you call it)???

Maybe someone has a recipe. I have seen it on here before.

(This is not an "add-in" but an "add-on") How about this cake I used to make:

Refrigerator Cake

1 yellow cake mix (for a 2 layer size cake)

1 15 oz. can crushed pineapple, drained, reserve juice

1 12 oz. cool whip

1/2 cup coconut

1 8 oz. sour cream

1 large pkg. instant vanilla pudding

milk

Bake cake in a 9x13" greased pan. Cool. Mix pudding with reserved pineapple juice and enough milk to make 2 cups. Spread onto cake. Sprinkle pineapple on top. Mix cool whip and sour cream together and frost cake with it. Sprinkle coconut on top. Keep in fridge.

Be sure to add/divide recipe according to your cake mix size.

I should have made this for my dd's birthday, I forgot all about it! :blink:

1- box Yellow Cake Mix

1- stick of Melted Butter, to drizzle on top

Crushed Nuts

OK . . . I have not tried this at all gluten free . . . but it may be worth investigating.

Many many moons ago, I took a cake decorating class. The instructor suggested adding a package of Dream Whip to the mix to make if fluffier and add volume. When you do that however, you remove the oil (butter) and add extra eggs.

This was the recipe for the GLUTEN version:

1 (18 ounce) package cake mix, any flavor

1 (1 1/3 ounce) envelope dream whip whipped dessert topping mix

4 eggs

1 cup cold water

Quite frankly, I didn't like the "Dream Whip" cake as I thought it came out fluffier but drier (very real chance I could have over cooked this - I only did it once). I would be concerned about not having the fat (is it oil or butter?) added to the Betty Crocker mix. Would it cause it to be too dry or crumbly? If you added some (half?) of the oil/butter, would it ruin the fluffifying (<-- new word :P ) effect of the Dream Whip?

But there it is . . . I may experiment with this. Even if I dry it out, my kids will eat anything with enough icing on it so it won't go to waste . . . :lol:

That was a fast reply...sounds great and EASY (and healthier than the one I posted)! For clarification, is the recipe for a 1 or 2 layer cake mix? Thanks!

The original dump cake recipes call for a standard box of cake mix, but since the results is just basically to turn the cake mix, butter, and nuts into a kind of crumb topping, the amount probably isn't crucial. You could reduce the amount of fruit filling you use to account for the (probably) smaller amount of cake mix in the gluten-free version. It will still make you drool.

Thanks for clearing that up...I googled dump cake and it looks like a double layer gets 2 cans of filling and a single (gluten-free) gets 1 can. There are lots of recipes and easy to convert to gluten-free! I want to try chocolate...my fave!

You could google jello cake or jello poke cake...some recipes would be easy to divide in 1/2, using the gluten-free cake mix. Lots of them using strawberry jello and fresh strawberries (if you can find them).

Another thought is to frost your cake, top and sides with a thick layer of ice cream. If desired spread ice cream topping between the cake and the ice cream. Store in the freezer of course.

I can't believe seeing this topic this morning, the very thing I was also wondering about. I have used the yellow cake mix for a jello and a pineapple upside down cake. I liked both. I am making my grandson his favorite cake for Thanksgiving. You use a German chocolate cake mix, bake according to box. When done take out of oven and immediately, with a handle of wooden spoon, punch holes like a peg board in cake. Then pour a 12 oz jar of smucker's caramel topping, and one 14 oz can eagle brand sweeten condensed milk over cake. Put in fridge to cool or overnight. Then put 2 or 3 chopped up heath bars over top of cake and cool whip. I checked ingredients and all but the cake seemed gluten-free.

I bought a box of Baker's German sweet chocolate bar yesterday. There is a cake recipe on back that calls for 2 cups flour and lots of other things! It would be much easier if I could use the yellow cake mix but have no idea how to do this. I love this cake to :(

Great idea's-thanks.

To clogger-maybe try subbing the chocolate cake mix-Betty Crocker or the Pamela's.

It won't be as rich as the German chocolate but with all the other yummy's going on, I know I wouldn't notice!

I love this cake! My mom makes it for us and it's soooooo good. Especially because it's cold. Greaton a hot day!

lpellegr -- What kind of bread is that in your picture and do you have the recipe? Can it be made in a bread maker? It looks great!

I made my Grandma's recipe for Cherry Jazz before they came out with Betty Crocker. I think I used Namaste Yellow cake and it's a double layer. I used a layer of cherry pie filling (2 or 3 cans). Then I sprinkled on the cake mix and drizzled with a cup of melted coconut oil because of a dairy allergy. Otherwise you could use butter or margarine. Mix lightly to get all of the cake mix moistened. Bake at 350 for about a half an hour or until lightly browned.

To me it tasted just like what my grandma used to make. Daughter didn't like it because of the cherries.

To digmom1014- I made the Heath cake. I seen on the Bakers German chocolate bar cake recipe that you melted the chocolate bar in 1/2 cup water for 2 min in microwave. The Betty Crocker cake used 2/3 cup water so I put the melted chocolate and 1/3 cup of water in the cake and made the recipe as I did the non-gluten-free cake. My daughter and her boy friend ate all of the cake, except for the one pc I had :P They loved it and are not Celiac!

I've always loved marble cake mixes, so as I pour the batter into the pan, I save about 1/4 cup in the mixing bowl, mix in a tbs of cocoa into the last bit of batter, then mix it into the cake once it's in the pan. (yellow cake mix, of course)

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!    
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.   
    • Recovery diet, nutrition, leaky gut?
      I am having my endoscopy on Tuesday. I want to begin to heal my gut asap. I spent this morning in the ER with stabbing pain in my right shoulder blade, pain to the left of my belly button and vomiting. It's referred pain from my small intestine. I couldn't move or breathe hardly it hurt so bad. I NEED to get everything together to heal my gut asap. I don't want to ever go through this again. What are your recommendations? I've been reading a bit on leaky gut - anyone have good experience/links Or would the autoimmune diet be better? Are they one in the same? I know I am also reacting to casein and possibly potatoes.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
