Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If desired, swap the spice cake mix for Betty Crocker™ Super Moist™ yellow cake mix, and bump up the pumpkin pie spice to 1 1/2 teaspoons.
  • tip 2
    This cake can be made using Betty Crocker™ Gluten Free yellow cake mix. Increase the pumpkin pie spice to 1 1/2 teaspoons, and bake as directed. As always, make sure all the other ingredients you use are gluten free.
