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:

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)

    • You might be like me and need to get a vitamin and mineral panel blood test.  And make sure it includes iron.   We both might be deficient in certain vitamins/minerals.  My medicals bills have been so high I've put it off and just started taking a multivitamin instead.  But I'm not sure it has it in what I really might be deficient.   So I'm going to spend more money and get a vitamin and mineral panel blood test. Even at my age I have high metabolism.   Gluten free meals only fill me up for 2-3 hours so I have a backpack with me everday and have gluten free snacks to hold me over.   My weight went from 168 to 161 my first month gluten free.  But it seems to have stabilized and might be going back up again a little.  I'm in the start of my 3rd mo. being/trying to be gluten free.   If I am hungry for too long I kinda get light headed and dizzy so I bring gluten-free snakes with me. I drank a bottle of Ensure + my first month to help keep weight on but it didn't seems to agree with my stomach.   It might of been my body trying to adjust to the new gluten free diet that caused that issue.  
    • Thanks, cyclinglady.   That's encouraging to know that people can have a relatively normal life with Crohn's.   I have a co-worker whose in his 50s with Crohn's.  I understand he's had it most of his life.  Lots of surgeries, iron infusions and ongoing pain.   My GI appointment isn't for another three weeks.   I had an abdominal CT scan 9 years ago for similar issues and it was clean.   I'm fairly old for Crohn's --I'm in my mid 40s-- and understand that it mostly affects people in their teens and 20s.  But, there are always those outliers. Given that both my brother and his son have Celiac...I'm hoping(?) for the less destructive disease.   
    •  Sounds like gluten might have snuck back into your diet, either a condiment, spice, a contaminated pot, utensil, bowl, or cup. Is your whole house gluten-free? Are you still fixing gluten meals for the kids? Once you go completely gluten free after the first few months many become hyper sensitive to gluten, where as a tiny amount of CC throws it all off the cliff like all hell broke loose in your guts. Double check back over everything. Read the 101, clean out and double check everything, I found freezer paper/butcher paper to make a nice clean work area and clean up a breeze, foil line pans etc. Cheap starts with cookware are to use microwave cook ware from nordicware, crock pot liners, and disposable or new utensils/cookware. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ Try keeping a food diary with a list of everything your eating, include every condiment/spice etc. Try to find a common denominator, Rotate your meals using different foods, cuisines, and source that are gluten-free. You might find some other foods that offend your gut, as many of us also find or develop other intolerance in the first few months.
    • Hi! I was officially diagnosed a couple of months ago now but I have been gluten free for about 4 months since my endoscopy. However, in the last month I have noticed some worrying post diagnosis and treatment symptoms. My appetite has shrunk enormously. I used to be able to eat bowls and bowls of food and still be hungry, I could consume food even when full and I was constantly snacking. I understand over eating is a big part of celiac disease before going on a gluten free diet but food is such a huge part of my lifestyle. This last month I feel as though I have lost myself a bit as huge parts of my character like my love for food, huge appetite and my non fussy nature have all been turned upside down. I could easily not eat any snacks in a day now and not have to have all my meals. I thought I might have lost weight so I weighed myself on the same scales I did a couple of months ago. I am a young tall girl and was 10 stone for the last year at least. In the last few weeks I have lost half a stone which is 7 pounds and am now 9.5 stone. This is not intentional and I did not aim or want this to happen so I am concerned about any continued lack of appetite and weight loss in relation to my health. Therefore, I am going to weigh myself each week and make sure I am eating all three meals. If it continues I'll visit the doctor. Also, I am noticing fatigue still which was a huge part of my pre diagnosis symptoms. I get to a certain point in the afternoon where I feel like I need to go home and rest because I can no longer continue. I have no stamina and it is restricting my freedom, which I feel has already been taken from me as a result of this diagnosis that came at a frustrating point in my life which was a huge nuisance. Finally, I am also finding it a bit of a struggle to get my head around the whole thing still and to understand what it means for me and my life. I am very worried and scared that it will impact me not just physically but mentally and socially and it scares me. I guess this was more me getting all this off my chest and into the open, if anyone has any advice or feedback I will be hugely grateful.
    • I've lost 3-4 pounds.   It surprises me, as I would have expected to lose more, considering how limited my diet has been,  how sick I was since early May, and now walking 35 to 45 min. after dinner.   I think it's the increased gluten-free bread and shortbread cookies.  I've eaten more of these as they settle my stomach and are safe when I'm not sure what else will work.   I think I may also be having more sodium, so there may be a bit of water weight. I am actually doing better.   I've been on Famotidine 20 mg., 2x daily for about 9 days, and added Vit D a few days ago.   I've been able to drop one of 4-5 stacked pillows at night, and will try dropping one more tonight.   I am down to Tums (1500 mg.)  around 3-4 a.m. for mild heartburn / upset stomach, and again when I get up.   Not much else, maybe occasional simethicone.     i tried returning to a salad at dinner, just lettuce, tomato, and onions, but seemed to have more trouble overnight, so quit.  I'm mostly eating an egg with toast, well cooked sweet potatoes/mixed veggies, tuna, some salmon, hamburger, chicken, Ian's fish sticks, bone broth, Schar's breadsticks and shortbread, some soy milk or macadamia milk, and the bakery gluten-free bread.
