When I was in California last month at my sister's, I made the Betty Crocker Yellow Cake Mix. I substituted unsweetened apple sauce for the eggs as my nephew's new wife is allergic to them. It turned out fine although I think there was too much oil in it. I would cut it down the next time. I would also add some vanilla as I thought you could taste the apple sauce too much. It made a really nice pound cake substitute with strawberries and everybody could eat it.

I feel like negative Nelly on the BC mixes but to me they're nasty and reacted to the brownie mix.

I won't buy any of them because I will then eat the whole cake. I just feel frustrated when food manufacturers think they can overprice our foods.

Betty Crocker has some GF mixes which are pretty good and no where near $7. My non-GF family and friends like them, too, so that simplifies get-togethers.

You might look at Amazon. They have a lot of good prices and if you do the subscribe and save it is even cheaper. I hardly ever buy a mix for that reason. I find what I make from scratch is much better anyway.

Just keep watching for sales. (If people don't give in and buy it at that price, it will come down). I only buy mixes when they are marked down.

So sorry, but I have to VENT. In a new store in town, I saw a $7 GF cake mix. Wow, What's in there that it would cost that much, I asked. In addition to the expensive mix, I needed to add 1 stick of butter and 3 eggs. Are they out of their mind? I didn't look at the calorie count (another added cost) before I put it back on the shelf.
