Add Baking Powder to Cake Mix

When using boxed cake mixes, add a half to a level teaspoon of baking powder. Being taught this by my grandmother has been a blessing. We don't always check the date on the box and as the box sits on the shelves, it loses it's strength. I am not a baker and have had cakes come out flat, but after using this method I haven't had any problems.

Please post your findings after using this idea.

What if the cake is in date do you still use baking powder? Sometime my box cake come out flat! I have really stopped using box cake mix. I just make my cake from scratch now. But, when they have a good sale on box cake mix I will stock up on them.

I always use extra baking powder to boxed cake mix as well as pancake mix, cornbread /muffin mixes. About 1 teaspoonful. And a pinch of baking soda to the cornbread also. No matter what the dates are. GG Vi
