I recently bought this…
So today was the day to make them. First, you don’t just use cake mix. The instructions say to use a box of cake mix with one more egg than the recipe calls for; instead of water, use milk and only half of what the box calls for; and add a box of pudding. These changes make for a more dense cake.
We used strawberry cake mix and cheesecake pudding mix. Basically you fill the lower half of the pan with the cake mix; place the upper half on top; lock it in place and cook.
Problem is they don’t tell you just how full to fill the bottom portion. I assumed I needed to use the entire cake batter. But no matter what I did I couldn’t fit all of it in the bottom half.
Snap on the top and cook for about 20 minutes.
Well – apparently that was just too much batter… This was what the outside of the upper pan looked like. Total eruption out of the pan.
Don’t they look so scrumptious!
