Betty Crocker Cake Mix

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I want to make a crumb cake this weekend but because the Betty Crocker mixes make a smaller amount than you would normally get from a traditional box mix I am going to make 2 boxes combined into 1 pan. Has anyone done this? I'm wondering what the baking time would be?

I have done this two different times now. The first time I mixed the choc and yellow and poured it into a 9x13 pan. I thought it was a little to thick for me. So next time I poured them into a 1/2 sheet pan and it turned out perfect. It was a little thinner (only about 2 inches instead of 3-4) but it was perfect with caramel frosting. The baking time was about the same for me. I am not sure what your elevation is. Make sure not to cook them too long they will get really dry.

My daughter's birthday is on the seventeenth and because she is restricted beyond gluten we are having a hard time with frosting.

Thank you!

I just wanted to report in that I made these tonight and they were a big hit!!! It was suggested (by hubby) to put the cream cheese mixture in the middle (partially fill muffin tin with batter, add a bit of the cream cheese mix and then finish filling with batter). I will try that next time. I wanted to try it on top this time because that was the way skinnyminny wrote it and sometimes things will naturally sink in. Anyway, thank you for posting. They were great and we will make it again!!!

Also, just for added info, I used 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. I also used regular cream cheese (because that's what I had), about a teaspoon of vanilla and three heaping tablespoons of powdered sugar. I did not melt the cream cheese but let it soften.

Ha exactly what I thought! I had a pumpkin craving and used what I had on hand. I am wondering if you could use the cake mix to make a pumpkin roll. But these are way easier no flipping out of the pan, rolling or messy powder sugar!

OH*MY*GOSH!

This is the best gluten free thing I have tasted- ever. I cant believe it!

They are just like the ones at starbucks... I sprinkled a little gluten free granola on each one and they turned out fantastic!

I do not own muffin pans so I looked at muffin pans today thinking about this pumpkin recipe. I may have to go back tomorrow to buy them. I found extra large muffin pans, only 6 muffins to one pan at a cost of $18 each at Bed, Bath and Beyond. Yep, I'm going to get them just for this recipe. The things we'll do for a good muffin!

Price those pans elsewhere...I bought the extra large 6 cup pan last year at Fred Meyer's and think I paid $6!

Also that size of pan makes great mini pies...I made apple, cherry, berry, cheeseburger, chicken alfredo, chicken and veg, turkey, ham and broccoli with cheese, breakfast style, Italian, taco, cheeseburger, baked bean, BBQ chicken...drop them in a baggie and freeze, heat and eat...my dd loves them.
