Mini Cinnamon Rolls

I know exactly what sweet roll recipe I am baking for Easter brunch. It is a recipe that Veronica Young of Greenville, SC, passed along a few years back. Veronica first tasted it on a church retreat when a mom brought along miniature cinnamon rolls to share for breakfast. “They simply melted in my mouth,” […]

Greek Yogurt Chocolate Chip Cake

While my favorite way to eat Greek yogurt is covered in blueberries and honey, my favorite way to bake with it is making chocolate cake. Maybe it was the sheer quantity of Greek yogurt in the supermarket – everywhere – that set me on this path. I searched for sour cream to bake a chocolate […]

Hello from Anne,

Smaller Cake Mix Fix: Many cooks have been frustrated to watch cake mix package sizes shrink lately. But do not despair! If you are accustomed to baking my recipes with 18.25-ounce mixes, there is a simple way that you can add flour to the smaller mixes and still bake Cake Mix Doctor recipes. Pour the cake mix into a large bowl and whisk in 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour. Now proceed as the recipe instructs. Not only will the cake achieve good volume, but it will have a nice structure and slice evenly. I learned this trick years ago before the mixes were downsized. If I added a little flour to the cake mix, then the cake seemed to have more body, and it did not sink or shrink when cooling. I hope you enjoy this simple solution!

Anne’s Old-Fashioned Yellow Cake Mix

Put on your favorite apron, plug in the mixer, and get ready to bake some memories. I've dreamed of creating a yellow cake mix that gets its color from butter and eggs, not artificial colors, and its scent from Madagascar vanilla.
