Betty Crocker Carrot Cake mix comes in a 500g box. The distinctive Betty Crocker red spoon is clearly visible at the top of the box. Betty Crocker is a well known and trusted American brand of baking and frosting products. The mix is flour based one which requires the addition of wet ingredients ( 70ml vegetable oil, 200ml water, 3 medium eggs) to complete the mix.
Ease of use
It literally took me about 8 minutes to make this cake. I added the oil, water and eggs to the dried mix from the box into my mixer and set to a slow mix for 30 seconds then up to medium for 2 minutes. If you have no electric mixer you can use a whisk or spoon to complete this part; I have never done it without my mixer so I cannot comment on the results. I transferred the mix equally into 2 8” round tins and baked in a pre-heated oven for 23 minutes (mine is fan assisted so only took the lower of the suggested times). You can easily check if a cake is done by inserting a skewer or knife point and if it comes out clean the cake is done). Cool as suggested.
The cake was soft to the touch and came out a golden brown. I put the 2 sandwiches together with the suggested Betty Crocker Buttercream Style Vanilla Icing and added a further thick layer to the top of the cake. I suggest putting in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving as it hardens the icing slightly making it easier to cut.
A delicious cake which is moist and tasty. The flavours are strong and distinctive as a carrot cake should be.
I bought mine for £1.93 in Tesco
