History of Boxed Cake Mixes

Even though the cake mix as we know it today was not introduced until the 1940s, the original one was invented in Pittsburgh, PA, in the early 1930s by the Duff & Sons Company.

The invention arose from an excess of molasses. The company figured out how to dry it and add it to other dry ingredients. While lucrative for the company, their popularity did not take off until after World War II, when housewives were looking for quick and convenient treats.

Pillsbury and Betty Crocker were the main manufacturers and, while business slumped in the 1950s, it resurged after the introduction of icing. Today, cake mixes are more popular than ever.

If you are like me, and look at recipes on the Internet, then you have probably come across a lot of two-ingredient cake mix recipes. They sound almost too good to be true, but I have to tell you that most of them are pretty good.

I'm not usually one to make lots of things from boxed mixes. I much prefer baking from scratch. But I always have a box on hand for emergencies, like when I find out that a big group of kids will be coming over for snacks after the game, or when I forget to make a treat for the church bake sale.

Whatever the situation, these creations are so ridiculously fast and easy to make, they save the day. I can usually whip up a batch of muffins in no time, and without having to make a trip to the grocery store.

I don't want you to think that these treats are going to win the blue ribbon at the county fair, and they do have their problems. For example, I have found that they don't usually rise as much as a cake prepared as per the package directions. They also tend to have a really moist, dense texture, almost gooey, which is not everyone's cup of tea.

Even with that being said, the ones I have tried are pretty good, and everyone enjoys them.

Cake Tips

  • These cakes don't rise as much as those prepared by the box directions, so you may want to use a smaller pan. For example, use one 9-inch round pan instead of two. You'll have one larger and thicker cake. A bundt pan makes this simple cake look a little fancier.
  • To puree items, use a food processor or a hand immersion blender.
  • While tasty on their own, step it up a little bit by sprinkling by powdered sugar or serving with whipped cream.

Muffin Tips

  • As noted above, two-ingredient cakes and muffins don't rise as much as the mixes prepared as directed. Add more of the batter to each muffin cup so you get larger muffins.
  • Since the muffins are softer, do not serve them until they have completely cooled and set. I usually put mine in the refrigerator overnight and the cupcake wrappers peel right off.
  • Delicious on their own, why not add some whipped cream, powdered sugar dusting, or prepared frosting for a special touch?

Brownies

How to Make Black Bean Brownies

Brownie Tips

  • The brownies made with a can of black beans are tasty and a good way to sneak some fiber into a treat without anyone knowing. Check out the video above to see how easy they are to make.
  • I like to use organic black beans because they tend to have a lot less sodium than regular black beans. I have even found that beans labeled "low sodium" have more salt than some organic brands.

Baking with Boxed Cake Mixes

If you are feeling adventurous, why not try your own flavor combination instead of one of the ones listed above? You may stumble upon the next great cake flavor!

I am not going to tell you that these creations are super healthy for you. However, by taking out the eggs and oil that are normally used, and replacing them with healthier items, like mandarin oranges, you can reduce the calories considerably.

There are also a number of chemicals used in used in some of these recipes, so I don't always like to give those to my family. However, there are times when a quick sweet treat is all we need, and these recipes fit the bill. I hope you'll give one a try.

Questions & Answers

  • Can I use a spice cake mix and bananas to make muffins or bread?

    That might be too thick. You can try it though. If the batter seems really thick, try adding a spoon of water, stirring in between to get the desired consistency.

  • Does the soda have to be diet for these cake recipes, and do I hand mix it?

    I have never tried the mixes with regular soda so I can't answer that. I would hand mix it because the soda can foam up.

  • Can you use applesauce instead of spice mix in yellow or white cake mixes?

    Sure. I'm not sure what it will taste like, but you could. It's the same type of mix.

  • I made the lemon pie filling and angel food cake. Can these be frozen?

    I don't see why not. The only issue is that angel food cake has a very light texture so it might deflate a bit when thawed, but not sure.

      I've used several of these recipes over the years, especially the pumpkin and yellow cake mix. I generally add one or two eggs in order to get them to rise up more. My kids also like it when I add mini-chocolate chips!

      @Renee Benise

      You could use the chocolate with pumpkin and the white with the cherry, and get delicious cakes just as described in this article. Or you could make a golden pumpkin cake with white mix and pumpkin, and a decadent chocolate cherry cake with the cherry filling and chocolate mix. Basic mixes will yield similar results no matter the flavor, so mix and match according to what you like.

      Would regular 7-up make it too sweet? I am very allergic to artificial sweeteners or sugar substitutes of any kind. These all sound delicious.

      When I made the applesauce/spice muffins it wasn't the same texture as if I would have followed the directions on the cake box. They were softer, but not gummy. I did put them in the fridge and that firmed them up a bit.

      Made the applesauce/spice cake and cooked according to directions-test done but it seems very gummy to us. Should I have cooked it longer? Not sure we will finish this cake.

      OMG! Who knew what could be accomplished with a cake mix. When it comes to pies and a flakey, from scratch, crust - I'm your girl. When it comes to cakes from scratch I'll let someone else bake them if you want to actually eat them. LOL. Boxed cake mixes are my savior. These ideas are right up my alley. Thank you so much!

We love it with homemade cream cheese frosting, which actually is quick and easy to make and so much better than anything out of a can. Thanks for compiling these lists!

      Ha!! I find the video very funny! Healthy brownies from Betty Crocker? Did you read the ingredients? Ironic that you use Organic beans but use mixes that have so much artificial ingredients you are better off making your own mix. Dextrose, HFCS, artificial dyes - no thanks. This makes a great dump brownie if you use your own flour, baking soda etc... Great idea, bad ingredients.

      Yep LadyZuul - You can use regular sodas. It's more for the liquid than anything else. Ginger Ale would work and I'm guessing that sparkling water would too. They probably won't be as sweet as the other options, but the cake mix is pretty sweet! Thanks for reading.

      Mmm I'm sure the ones with apple sauce or pumpkin purée end up being quite moist. My mom has a recipe for Queen Elizabeth cake from scratch that has ginger ale in it and it's very scrumptious so I'm curious if one of the 7-up recipes would be similar. I'll have to try it.

      Could you puree fresh strawberries and add to a white cake mix for a two ingredient strawberry cake?

      Just made an angel-food/pineapple cake in a bundt pan (sprayed with PAM baking spray with flour - making the release a breeze!). It is easy, light, and delicious - just what I look for in a dessert! Try it!!

      Not sure about that Dreamer. Not sure how a muffin mix is different from a cake mix and also not sure about the cream cheese. If you try it, I'd be curious how it turns out.

      What if I added cream cheese and Sprite Zero to blueberry muffin mix? Would that do, you think?

      OMG Black bean brownies ! Oh so good and no one the wiser at my house. Now I know what to do with the extra beans when I cook too many. Orange cake, I used Ginger ale. Yum !

      Hi Esorami - Glad you've tried some of these. I've never tried a cake mix with beets. Does it get enough moisture? I would imagine beets would add great color and they do have a bit of sweetness to them. Thanks for the comments.

      Thanks for making a graph, easy to use that way. I've made some of these and they've all turned out great. Today as an experiment I am making a chocolate beet cake. Our garden beets and a cake mix. I may add 1 egg.

      What a great list you have! My favorite thing to make lately with cake mixes is cookies! I have made Smores, Snickerdoodle, Triple Chocolate and Maple Snickerdoodle with cake mixes. Enjoy your day and keep up the good work! :)
