I'm going to the store today and I want some good cake. I don't mind what kind, but I've never tried BC cake mix, so I don't know the variety they sell, but I see a lot of people here trust the brand.

What's your favorite mix?

We mostly use the white cake mix. We're also PN/TN free. My PA son told me I was the best cake-baker he knew! Of course, he's only had cake that I've made...

I don't eat cake, but according to family the yellow gets 1st, followed by french vanilla. Both have pudding in the mix - very moist.

Chalk up another for french vanilla and plain yellow. Really moist and their frosting is not too bad either.

The rainbow chip with matching icing is yummy too. And the kids love it!

I bought one a few times that is a cinnamon marble type cake. I'm not sure if it's still available but it was really good.

Chocolate Fudge or Devils Food of course. Is there any other kind? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

Yes, I have made them for my older DD (before she grew out of her egg allergy) and for my youngest DD classmate who is also egg allergic.
I use 1 tsp of baking powder mixed with 1/4 cup of apple sauce per egg sub.
Good luck.

Hi KarenT!
Thank you for the suggestion - I am going to try this right away as my son wants a "yellow" cake for his birthday and so far I am not happy with any of my scratch attempts.

I found some of the Hershey brownie mix (Betty Crocker) in the cupboard, has anyone tried this before?
