Dough Boy Landed At Big Boys Oven

A week ago, this little cutie dough boy from Pillsbury had landed at our studio and keep requesting us to try what he had. Wow! For this first visit dough boy brought a few boxes of Pillsbury’s moist supreme cake mix, Devil’s Food. Dough Boy showed us on how easy to bake this Devil’s Food cake mix, just need water, oil and eggs . . . . . sounds very simple indeed. Dough Boy asked me to grease the pan that I want to use and set aside. The mix the cake mix with water, oil and eggs. Whisk them at low speed and then at high speed. I used three Bundt pans and baked it for about 40 minutes and cool in pan on the cooling rack for 15 minutes. This is what I baked!


A very soft and light chocolate cake. The texture is good too, fine and not heavy. Tasted really good and I liked it.


I went on to decorate this cake with chocolate ganache and top with nuts. That night I had an invited dinner and brought one of this cake as a dessert over some ice cream. It was gorgeous. I also gave my students at my last macaron class a box each for them to try out at home. Now I can’t wait for Dough Boy to come over with more of these delicious mixs!


It was a great new experience for me as this is my first time doing such a food review and I am looking forward to more in near future. As for this Pillsbury Devil’s Food moist supreme cake mix, I would highly recommend especially if you need something fast, tested and delicious. I will defintely keep a box in my kitchen cabinet so must you! Thank you Dough Boy, hope to see you again soon . . . . . Love Sunny Yaw

    Doughboy (Pillsbury) should pay you for doing advertising their product. I like the touch of chocolate and nut as garnish.
