UPDATE:  This giveaway has ended. For the past week I’ve enjoyed sampling Pillsbury® Bold Funfetti® mixes and frosting. At first I was a little skeptical, but when I started using the products I fell in love with the range of colors and potential for making creative treats like my new favorite — the Polka Dot […]

Lemon Pound Cake

Today’s recipe is for an easy lemon pound cake using a pouch of Pillsbury Neon Yellow Funfetti cake mix. The original flavor of the mix is vanilla, but adding some lemon, lemon oil, butter, lemon instant pudding and cream cheese gave it a great lemon flavor and a soft, dense, pound cake texture that improves […]

Earthquake Cake

I can’t believe it took me so long to try this recipe; and hopefully in years to come I’ll be serving it at potlucks, teacher appreciation events and Girl Scout meetings to make up for lost time. For now, I’m just glad I have a small “Earthquake Cake” to serve tonight. So what is Earthquake […]

Marble Cake

One of my favorite scratch marble cakes is this Triple Layer Mocha Marble Cake, but last week I had to pull something together quickly for a Girl Scout pot luck and felt like using cake mix. Since I’d had good luck with the enhanced Orangesicle cake, I decided to push that luck a bit by […]

Orange Creamsicle Cake

As part of the Pillsbury Baking giveaway I posted a few days ago, Pillsbury sent me a few boxes of their new cake mixes to experiment with.  This cake (along with the White Chocolate Cheesecake Key Lime Bundt Cake) was one of the experiments. I wanted to see how using a popular technique for extending […]

Boston Cream Pie Cupcake

A few days ago I stumbled upon my new favorite website, Wayne’s This and That. Wayne, whom I’ve never met, has lots of interesting information (Todd’s enjoying his Addams Family Pinball section), but what drew me in were his cake mix comparisons. I could tell before reading the rest of the site that he was […]

Melted Ice Cream Cake

I’ve been going through all my Cake Mix Doctor books lately and admiring the genius of Anne Byrn. As much fun as it is to bake from scratch, the number of things that can be done with a simple box of cake mix is pretty impressive.   So this week, in my ongoing attempt to […]

Double Fudge “Fancifill” Cake

Double Fudge Fancifill Cake

My mom didn’t enjoy baking, but occasionally she’d find a recipe so tempting it would lure her to the kitchen. One of those recipe was the “Double Fudge Fancifull Cake”, a plain chocolate cake with a ribbon of cheesecake running through the center. I vaguely remember the cake from childhood and am thinking my mom […]
