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

How can I make a pound cake out of ordinary cake mix in a box?
By Marilyn L.
1 box box of Duncan Hines most deluxe classic yellow cake mix
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?
If you eliminate the baking powder, since the self rising flour already has it.
if you take out the baking powder then it will work
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.

Melt 1/2 cup solid margarine
Add 1 3/4 cups cold water
Allow to cool to at least barely warm
...Pour cake mixes into a large bowl.
.....Add the cooled margarine and water mixture.

.....Add 5 eggs and 1 egg white.
Beat on high 2 minutes or until well blended.
Step 5Pour into prepared pans.
Bake at 350 degrees until knife or toothpick insert into center comes out clean.
After baking is completed, remove from oven and cool.
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?
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.
I use milk instead of water, it's nice and moist.
