Freezing Boxed Cake Mix Batter?

There are only two of us. When mixing up a boxed cake, can I freeze half the batter to bake later?

I don't think it would work very well, since you usually add oil and eggs. I'm all alone, and what I do to use boxed cake mix, is to measure out the dry mix into 1/2 size portions of the dry mix, and store them in small tightly sealed containers. Then it's easy to add just half the water, oil and eggs, to make only half a cake at a time. You might also like to know, that you CAN bake a cake in a microwave, using a glass pie dish or a silicone cake pan. You only need to bake it at high power for about 2 - 3 minutes. If you look up a recipe for "Mug Cake" on the internet, you can also make individual cakes in coffee mugs using ingredients you already have at home and don't need to buy cake mixes, which have preservatives, artificial flavoring, and other ingredients that won't be in homemade mug cakes.

Much easier to make the cake and freeze it (wrap well in wax paper, then plastic bag or a good seal plastic container).

Batter does not freeze well. It can be done, but it often has a weird texture when baked after being frozen.

And on the other hand, it may not be good to freeze cake batter because of added moisture, and loosing the volume of the eggs. The eggs along with the oil/butter gives cake mix a whipped body mixture to rise during baking.

You would loose the height and have issues with the texture also. You could bake off the mix , and freeze the cake/cupcakes for a later date. This can be done, and taken from the freezer as needed like many freezer cakes in your grocery.

I do not believe this would be a good idea but you can easily use half of the mix and store the balance in a closed container for another day.

I would bake the whole cake, divide and freeze it. You will save time and energy.

I agree with Judy. Most cakes freeze well and having half a cake ready to pull out of the freezer and enjoy is a convenience you're sure to enjoy.
