very good.”

3. Pillsbury Moist Supreme Classic Yellow Cake Mix $1.39
This cake was “extremely tender and moist, with a very even crumb.” So sweet “there's no need to add icing,”
quipped one taster.

complained about the “chalky,” “mushy” texture.

6. Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Classic Yellow Cake Mix $1.69
One taster likened this sample to a “spongy Twinkie,” while other panelists were more generous and praised
its “nice and light” crumb.

Not Recommended

7. Jiffy Golden Yellow Cake Mix $.89 (makes only one 9“ cake)
“Tastes like the box it came from,” said one taster. Overall, this cake mix was panned for its insipid,
stale flavor and “dry and terrible” texture.

8. King Arthur Flour Vanilla-Butter Cake Mix $4.95
This mix contains fewer additives than the rest, but tasters were not impressed by the cake's
“grainy,”“crumbly” texture and strong “almond extract” aftertaste.
