Italian cake is has a wonderful taste...

This if my first comment. I assure you that every recipe I have made from this sit is soooo gooo!

Soft Peanut Butter Cookies the best. Easy and my Grandkids love them.

this sounds like some great recipes. thanks.

these should be in a ecookbook.


I'm glad that the test kitchen has had the same results with the smaller sized cake mixes. I haven't found this to be the case. I made a candy bar cake that has ice cream topping poured into holes you poke in the cake and the cake disintegrated in the areas where the topping was poured in. This was very disappointing. That cake was very popular with my friends.

I have fond memories of Mr. Food when he was on the evening news on TV. As an Army wife I have entertained quite a bit over the years and have always found Mr. Food's recipes to come out perfect every time. I have copies of 3 of Mr. Food's cookbooks - well worn now from lots of use. :-)

Thank you for your kind words! It thrills us to hear that we have been in your kitchen helping you entertain over the years. Enjoy!

Why don't the creators of these cake mix recipes realize cake mixes are no longer 18.25oz. Betty Crocker cakes mix receipes are 15.5 oz and duncan Hines are 16.5 oz. Yes it makes a difference when trying these recipes.

Thank you for your comments. We realize that some cake mix brands have changed the package size. However, we have discovered in the Mr. Food Test Kitchen that the slight difference in amount will not affect the outcome of any of our recipes. Thank you and enjoy!

Pillsbury mixes and Aldis brand are18.25
