It is very close to the old fashioned pound cakes, but doesn't take as long. Stays moist for several days, if it's not eaten before then.



All ingredients should be at room temperature. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine cake mix, oil, sour cream and sugar. Add eggs one at a time until thoroughly mixed. Stir in vanilla. Spray (or grease) Bundt pan and sugar coat the inside of pan (this creates the crisp crust found on the old fashioned pound cakes). Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for approximately 45 minutes or until cake test is done.

Serves 12.

TIP: Instead of vanilla, experiment! I have used lemon or orange or raspberry. I'll try another flavor next time!

Can I use self rising flour when it calls for all purpose flour when making a diur cream pound cake from a box cake mix?


February 7, 20190 found this helpful

If you eliminate the baking powder, since the self rising flour already has it.

If your non-sel- rising-flour-recipe calls for 1/2 to 1 tsp of baking powder , per cup of regular flour used in the recipe, then you can use self rising flour in that recipe. The amount of baking soda equals out in that case.

You will find this is a controversial subject among bakers but most true bakers will say to not do this as the flour is not processed the same and just removing baking soda will not correct it.

I believe you should also eliminate the salt if you are going to try this.

Here is a link to what a university test kitchen has to say about usinf one in place of the other.

Which box mix? Why not go right to the source and ask them what they think. They are the experts in their products!

5 large eggs + 1 egg white

Step 2In a bowl or measuring cup:
Melt 1/2 cup solid margarine
Add 1 3/4 cups cold water
Allow to cool to at least barely warm

So the only way to make boxed pre-packaged pound cake mix come out moister is a box regular cake mix along with the other ingredients? Is there any way to do it just using the 16 oz boxed pound cake mix?

Reply Was this helpful? Yes

If you make the mix according to package directions, it will be the regular cake consistency. If you want it moister, you will have to add ingredients. You could try undercooking it but that is risky.
