    Recipe for upgrading 15.25 oz. cakes mixes to 18.25 oz. cake mixes. I got this from the lady who writes the food column for the Sun Sentinel newspaper in Ft. Lauderdale.

    1 and 1/2 cups flour, 1 cup sugar, 2 tsp. baking powder, 1/4 tsp. baking soda. Mix well and store in jar or other container. To upsize a white cake add 6 TBS, to the mix and follow directions on the box. DO NOT alter any other ingredients. To make a chocolate cake upgrade SUBSTITUTE the 6 TBS. of the white mix with 6 TBS. of unsweetened cocoa powder. Again, DO NOT change any other ingredients.

    I have used this three of four times and it does the job.
