Betty Crocker is a brand and fictional character used in advertising campaigns for food and recipes. It was originally created by the Washburn-Crosby Company in 1921 following a contest in the Saturday Evening Post. Betty Crocker is probably most known for the cake mix and frosting that they sell at most grocery stores. In honor of my birthday today, we will make one of these cakes GoodEats420 style.
- Betty Crocker Devil’s Food Cake Mix
- Betty Crocker Chocolate Frosting
- 1 1/4 Cups Water
- 1/2 Cup Infused Coconut Oil (Use Vegetable Oil if you do not want it medicated)
- 3 Eggs
1. Heat oven to 350°F for shiny metal or glass pan or 325°F for dark or nonstick pan. Grease bottom only of 13” x 9” pan or bottom and sides of all other pans.
2. Mix Cake Mix, water, oil and eggs in large bowl with mixer on medium speed or beat vigorously by hand 2 minutes. Pour into pan.
3. Bake as directed in chart or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan. Cool completely before frosting.
4. Whip the frosting with a hand mixer to make it better. To medicate the frosting, whip with a 1/4 cup of infused coconut oil.
Pan Size: 13”x9” | Two 8” Rounds | Two 9”Rounds | Bundt® | Cupcakes (makes 24)
Bake Time (in minutes)*: 30-35 | 30-35 | 25-30 | 40-45 | 14-19
*If using dark or nonstick pan, bake 3-5 minutes longer. Heat oven to 375°F for shiny metal pan or 350°F for dark or nonstick pan. Spoon batter into cups (about 3 Tbsp each).
High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Stir 1/4 cup all-purpose flour into dry cake mix; increase water to 1 1/2 cups. For all Bundt® pans, heat oven to 325°F; grease and flour pan. Make 36 cupcakes.
I added a 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract to each cake to enhance the flavor. This is not necessary, but does taste great.
