Today I used Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge cake mix. Added 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, 1/2 cup chopped nuts, 1/2 cup chopped well-drained maraschino cherries, and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. 350F for 12 minutes. Ohhhhhh!

CJ, try orange cake mix, white baking chips, chopped nuts, and fresh orange zest.

i would order it i think. though i got the cake mix doctor and was really not impressed. made a couple of the cakes and didn't care for them.

we have come up with wonderful sounding flavors and additions. don't need the book but might be nice to have at that price.

i'm thinking dried pineapple . you would need to cut it smaller. of course. i also found on line groc. store . a product called shaved nuts. in pecans etc. would be smaller than chopped and it is less expensive.

i think the cinnamon chips would also be good in carrot cake mix.

SO no eggs at all.. how was the batter to spoon out? Were the cookies firmer than the ones made with 2 eggs and 1/2 C oil?

Curious minds want to know.

i just goofed and didn't type the eggs. used two eggs same as always. every thing else was accurate. they were a little firmer. i think only one tablespoon of water would be the key.

of course they weren't as oily, they did not spread as much. a cake like cookie with a really good texture. they did take 15 min to cook, they did not crumble when i ate them.

babe
sorry bout the goof.
