Cake Mix Extender

From the Recipe Shoebox.

1 cake mix of choice PLUS all the ingredients listed on the box (eggs, oil, water)

1 c flour
1 c sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 pkg instant pudding mix , small size (make sure you pick the flavor of pudding the matches the flavor of your cake)
1 egg
1/2 c water
1 tsp vanilla

The Directions:

Mix all the dry ingredients into a bowl.  (the cake mix, and all the extra dry ingredients)

 Now add all the wet ingredients.  Both what is listed on the box PLUS what to add.

 Mix well for a couple minutes with an electric beater.  Scrape down the sides periodically.

 Pour into desired baking pans.  Here I made cupcakes for a Halloween party.

 Follow the directions on the box for how long to bake and the temperature.  (usually 325-250 degrees for about 18 minutes).  See, this made 36 cupcakes with one cake mix box!

I was helping with a cupcake decorating activity at a Halloween party.  Here are some of the cupcakes that the kids made.  I guess with a large supply of sprinkles and candy, they don't know when to stop.
