Pink Champagne Cake (Doctored Cake Mix Recipe)
- 1 box cake mix (sifted), we used Duncan Hines (15.25 oz.) Classic White
- 1 cup (121g) all-purpose four
- 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon (5g) baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon (3g) salt
- 1 1/2 sticks (12T) (179g) unsalted butter, melted
- 4 egg whites (large eggs)
- 2 teaspoons (8g) vanilla
- 2 Tablespoons (16g) vegetable oil
- 1 2/3 cup (400g) pink champagne (we used Andre Blush )
- Pink Coloring Gel of choice (We used a small amount of Americolor Deep Pink)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour three 8 inch cake pans. In the bowl of your mixer add the sifted cake mix, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.
- Whisk at least 30 seconds to combine ingredients. Add the melted butter, egg whites, vegetable oil, vanilla and champagne.
- With the mixer on low speed, increasing to medium speed, mix for 1 minute. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl. ADD THE COLORING GEL AT THIS TIME if you want a pink cake. We added the gel color with a toothpick to control the amount.
- Beat on medium speed for 1 more minute ( a bit longer if using a hand mixer). Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl and put into prepared cake pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes, check at 30 minutes.
- Recipe makes about 7 1/2 cups of batter.
