Boxed Cake Mix Pound Cake Recipes

October 17, 2006

Cake Box Mix Pound CakeIt 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?

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.

When making the pound cake, can a regular pound cake pan be used or must it be a tube pan?


April 28, 20190 found this helpful


I would use an angel food cake pan or a tube pan for the pound cake. I would not use a bundt pan for the pound cake.

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.

There are lots of recipes on the Internet but most use about the same ingredients.
Remember: If you plan to add pudding to the mix - do not buy cake mix that says 'pudding in the mix'. I should say - that is my opinion.


This one sounds good but new to me.

This one I have made several times and it is always nice.
