So I joined the Betty Crocker website because I know the recipes are reliable. I've been using my Mom's cookbook (which was a gift to her in 1986, I think, when she married my Dad). and come to think of it, I think she said it was even older than twenty-five years old...
Anyways, I went on the site to get a recipe that the book does not have (we have been meaning to replace it). So the recipe I made was great so I looked at the others on the site and many of the cake recipes include short cuts, like, using the cake mix for the cake part instead of making the cake from scratch.
Call me old fashion, but if I'm looking for a cake recipe, I expect to find an actual recipe not a short cut with other ingredients.
Thankfully they have an actual recipe for some of the base cake mixes.
Does that bother anyone else?
