EasyInstructionsThings You'll Need:
1 box Betty Crocker Golden Vanilla or French Vanilla cake mix
1 box Betty Crocker 16oz pound cake mix
5 large eggs + 1 egg white
1 stick solid margarine
extra solid margarine
1 3/4 cups water
Spray cooking oil
Step 1I use certain brands of cake mixes to obtain an unique flavor that I prefer. You can use other brands of cake mixes that are available in your area.

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

Step 3
...Pour cake mixes into a large bowl.


.....Add the cooled margarine and water mixture.
Beat on high 2 minutes.
..Be sure to scrape sides and bottom of bowl while mixing.

Step 4
.....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.
good luck.

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.
