    These are the ingredients for the cake mix:
    f: Wheat Starch, Salt, Dextrose, Polyglycerol Esters Of Fatty Acids, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Cellulose Gum, Artificial Flavors, Xanthan Gum, Maltodextrin, Modified Cornstarch, Colored withSugar, Enriched Bleached Wheat Flour (Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Vegetable Oil Shortening (Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Propylene Glycol Mono- and Diesters Of Fats, Monoand Diglycerides), Leavening (Sodium Bicarbonate, Dicalcium Phosphate, Sodium Aluminum Phosphate, Monocalcium Phosphate). Contains 2% Or Less O (Yellow 5 Lake, Red 40 Lake).

    I know everyone is interested in making things parve, but partially hydrogenated oil is trans fat, and will clog arteries. If you are okay with this, then by all means use it. Personally, I would using organic cake mix. Also, the Food Babe (follow her on Facebook), says that propylene glycol is an ingredient in anti-freeze. Should it be in your food?

      fyi, the propylene glycol used in foods and that used in anti freeze are different formulations. I am not saying whether it should or shouldn’t be used but a)lets compare apples to apples and b)it HAS been studied extensively before being approved for use in foods. I always prefer home made and natural, but convenience once in a while is ok to me.

        Partially hydrogenated oils have also been studied extensively. They are a dangerous food additive. I don’t get why pareve always has to mean unhealthy when it comes to desserts.

      Again, I am not saying we can’t eat better but I do believe the majority of “organic” in this country is the great American bluff, and a genius marketing tool to get people to pay more for nothing ( kinda like brown eggs, which simply come from a different chicken breed and have zero bearing on nutrition/health) http://www.forbes.com/2009/08/20/organic-foods-facts-lifestyle-health-organic-products.html

      Thank you for caring enough to share this information. I had to pause and reflect on this a few moments. I think I can make this healthier and better by substituting a yellow cake recipe from scratch. Thanks!

    B”H The following are ingredients for homemade pareve yellow cake. You can use your own fruit fillings and other fresh fruits if desired. *Omit the oil and follow directions as above…that should eliminate your concerns regarding boxed ingredients…
    3 large eggs
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup orange juice
    1 tsp vanilla
    *1 cup mild olive oil or vegetable oil
    2 cups unbleached flour
    1 tbsp. baking powder


  4. This cake recipe tastes like a commercial cake mix cake.You can smell it when it leaves the oven! There are so many easy and cheaper “from scratch” recipes to use, why bother with all the unhealthy preservatives in this one? Yuk!

  5. Questions about dump cake recipes and don’t know where to ask! Can anyone help me?

  6. Regarding the recipe of Dump Cake, do I prepare the cake mix as per the box directions before sprinkling it over the pie filling, or do I just sprinkle the powdered cake mix as it is in the package, over the pie filling and bake it?? Please advise. thanks so much for great recipes
