    Asking for a special favor. Will someone who is about to make a box mix cake, measure the volume of the dry mix and let me know?

    I am trying to convert the Gooey Butter Cake recipe to gluten free.

    The recipe calls for a cake mix. I used the dry ingredients for my best gluten-free cake and the gooey cake turned out tasty, but I had to move it from the size pan called for into my largest baking dish and then double the topping.

    Not only was it a big cake, it was thick. The gooey cake I've seen has been thin, like a brownie. So. I think it is pretty obvious that my dry ingredients measured a lot more than the dry ingredients in a cake mix and I need to reduce the amount.

    Okay, maybe it's too late, but I hate to see such a simple question go unanswered, so I decided to make a cake. There were 3 and 1/2 cups of mix in the box. If I gain weight, we'll all know where it came from!
