Cake Mix Morphing?

Tansy The Spleen | Oct 25, 2004 08:45 PM

My local supermarket had Betty Crocker cake mixes (pudding added) for sale, so I bought almost twenty. Flavors vary from carrot to triple chocolate to angel food and on and on. I'm amply sick of the cake and frosting variants I've developed. Now I'd like to morph these cake mixes into cookies, scones, breads. brownies. Even savory dishes. Sweetish uhm, dumpling bases? Maybe cheesecakey somethings?

Anyone have any tips/recipies? I've sussed out the Betty Crocker web site without much luck. They concentrate mostly on their pre-mixed cookie and brownie mixes, not how to morph their cake mixes into brownies or cookies. They are also lousy with helpful recipies for their Bisquick, of course.

Really, I'd be pleased if someone had a nice formula for how to alter the add-in ingredients to morph cake mixes into cookies or brownies. I guess I'm just sick of cake.

But Oooh, is there anyone out there with a detailed recipie on how I can make home-made twinkies with my yellow cake mixes or my angel food cake mixes? I wonder how they secret that creamy filling in with minimal outside interference? Pastry cream bag with an awfully sharp tip, I suppose?
