Sunflower is asking: (2 answers)
Has anyone ever used the "Cake Mix Extender" with a cake mix? And what were the resultsssss (for a 9x13)? I got this information from All Recipes. Cake Mix Extender Add to any cake mix to make it equal 1.5x the batter amount. 1 cup flour ( I use cake flour, but all purpose will work too) 1/2 cup sugar 1 tsp. vanilla 1 tsp baking powder 1 egg 1/2 cup water DIRECTIONS: 1. Add to a regular box mix for 9 inch cakes...Follow directions for your cake mix...may take a little longer as the cake(s) will be thicker, do a toothpick test for doneness. I am wanting to do this in a Chocolate Cake Mix. But I don't want to dillute the chocolate. Do I add another 1/4 cup of cocoa? My 9x13 cakes are always thin and I want a thicker cake. TIA

Exchange the cocoa powder for part of the flour.

for chocolate I replace 1/2 cup of sugar with 1/2 cup of cocoa and use coffee for the water, I omit the almond extract and use all vanilla, makes a really moist and flavourful cake.
