On a whim I made a cake for the first time ever, in this case a Duncan
Hines Triple Chocolate cake.
Process was pretty straightforward. I used an electric mixer to mix the
batter powder, eggs, oil and water. Used store-brand corn oil. Baked it
in 2 9-inch pans for 30 mins.
The results were okay - tastes pretty good. However the basic texture
isn't like a store-bought cake. By that I mean it's kind of dense, chewy
compared to a store-bought which I would describe as typically being
more light, fluffy.
Is there a way to make it more like store-bought?
Should be pretty light textured. Did you follow the directions on the
Yes. I used corn oil, the recipe says "vegetable oil". Should corn oil work?
