My go-to box cake!

I was just reading all the negative reviews, and it was a bit shocking. I’ve been buying Duncan Hines Devil’s Food cake mix for at least 25 years. It’s a mix that I always keep on hand, and I’ve dressed it up and down over the years with good success. In fact, I just pulled this cake out of my oven for a potluck church picnic this afternoon. I did a bundt cake, so I’ll top it with chocolate ganache and a few chocolate chips for garnish, and I’ll be good to go! I find this cake mix to be delicious and reliable. I’m a little perplexed by all the bad reviews, so I thought I’d pass along my good thoughts as a happy consumer. Reviewers mentioned that the mix has changed, but I’ve not noticed that. Happy baking!

This is terrible. I even embellished using milk, butter & mayo (just like Grandma) and it was still dry and had no chocolatey flavor with a bitter aftertaste. After 30+ years of use, I will buy another brand.

I made two boxed of this mix and was supposed to get 48 cupcakes. I only got 36 and that was filling the cupcake liners less than half full and using normal sized cupcake liners. The batter was very thin and did not mix well.

I had used this cake for decades and everyone loved my cakes very fluffy and moist. I recommend it to everyone. The secret was to beat it for 3 minutes. Unfortunately Duncan Hines changed something and now the cake is flat dense and dry. I have tried about four of them with no success. Will not use them again and will never recommend them. I am so disappointed. Everyone looked forward to cake for their birthday and now I will have to find a new cake or make one from scratch.

I have been a faithful Duncan Hines purchaser for over 30 years. It has been my go to brand and I always use the devils food chocolate for Birthday cakes for my family. I made one today and have to say everyone in my family did not believe it was the same cake I made for so many years. It was extremely dry and did not rise as high as previous cakes. The texture was not as moist. Something has changed and sorry to say I have to change too. I cannot purchase this brand anymore.

I have been baking the Duncan Hines Devil's Food cake for many years. I have been faithful to this brand because of the great taste. But my last purchase a few days ago was extremely disappointing. It is NOT the cake I have loved for years. It did have lots of air bubbles in the mix and it was NOT moist and fluffy like in the past. After reading other reviews, most people agree. Change the mix back to the way it used to be!!!! After this last cake, I do not want to buy this brand any more. So disappointed.

I have been using only Duncan Hines cake mixes for over 40 years. They have always been soft, bouncy and great tasting. Just made a devils food cake and was so disappointed. Usually the mix is thick and have plenty for 24 cupcakes. This time it was thin batter and I had just enough for 21 cupcakes forcing me to take small amounts from each one to make 24. The cupcakes were not the moist fluffy cakes I so loved but dry and almost tasteless. Please bring bake the old recipe, this one is not good!

Very disappointed in the mix. I have bought Duncan Hines for years but don't want to ever have another Perfectly Moist mix. If this is what Duncan Hines is going to be, I'll use another brand from now on. We bought 2 of these mixes. The garbage can got the baked one and is getting the 2nd box unopened.

Can't tell its a Devil's Food cake

Aurelia - 6 months ago

I've been using Duncan Hines cake mixes for many, many years, I baked the Perfectly Moist Devil's Food cake today and was sorely disappointed. The batter was watery and filled with air bubbles (apparently too much baking soda and/or baking powder). Since I weigh my batter in the cake pan, I noticed the weight was less. (On looking at the package, I noticed you've down-sized your cake mix.) My husband and I both sampled the cut-off domes of the cake, and we both agree that there is NO chocolate flavor at all. If this were a blind taste test, I would not be able to discern the flavor of the cake. It just tasted sweet. The texture was off and the flavor was off. Your test kitchens failed on this one.

Devil's Food Cake - No Flavor

I baked your cake and agree with others. It is NOT up to the standards it used to be! Just saying, "Sorry", isn't improving your product, which I agree with others. Certainly NO chocolate flavor. Taste like nothing! I couldn't even tell it was chocolate!! Won't buy again!

Shameful and awful cakes now!

Cakebaker - 6 months ago
originally posted on duncanhines.com
Ever since you changed the mix from 18 ounces to 15 it has been horrible. I have been using Duncan Hines (and wouldn't use anything else) for over 30 years and my mom only used you even before that (so we're talking about 50 years). I used to make cakes for my kids' birthdays, events, etc. and often for other family members and close friends. I always received compliments on how AMAZING my cakes used to taste. Not any more, it's such a shame! You changed the size and the formula and it is literally awful. I can't even bring myself to buy them anymore I am now looking for a new product or just making them from scratch. I used to buy boxes and boxes of these mixes, you have lost a loyal customer. I urge you to change it back, I would definitely pay more money for the old product back! If you're afraid of charging too much, then make 2 kinds, Original recipe and charge more money, and New recipe and make it cheap. Cake is not something we eat all the time, it's a treat for special occasions, holidays, etc. So I (and probably a lot of people) would be willing to pay more for a good tasting product as opposed to eating garbage - I certainly won't be buying it anymore. You messed up Duncan Hines, you messed up with this new mix. :-(

I have been using Duncan Hines cake mixes for a long time. I make cake for a lot of people Got great reviews when I made them. I don't know what you have changed. But put it back the way it was!!! I also know that you have decreased the amount of mix in the box. What used to make a 9x13 cake doesn't do it anymore.

I almost never use anything but Duncan Hines Devil's Food Cake Mix! The real secret is in the cooking! NEVER OVER COOK! I've been cooking for a long time and have an aroma timer, there is a particular aroma when the cake is ready to be removed from the oven. Taking it out at the right time can make all the difference! I also always add a dab or tab. of Mayo to the mix. People really fight over the last cupcakes when I bring them for a gathering. I use this method for ALL MY CAKES, no matter the brand, but I preferer Duncan Hines Devil's Food Cake to ANY OTHER!

I agree with everyone else who is so disappointed with the Duncan Hines cake mixes that are I stock today. Cupcakes end up dry and crumbly and as other mentioned, they cave in. Same with the cakes, but the entire taste is different, not just the texture. Many years ago I used Duncan Hines and Betty Crocker interchangeably and always had great results. Eventually Betty Crocker changed something in their products (brownies too) and became very artificial tasting. I then stayed solely with Duncan Hines. I’m fact, I even was able to make the cakes totally as directed OR even doctor them up sometimes for an even better more moist cake… using butter instead of oil and milk instead of water and people would go CRAZY for my cakes and were convinced I made them from scratch. I even made a yellow cake with orange juice instead of water one time and it was amazing! I would not dream of doing anything like that now. After reading all the comments I decided to give “Sunken Hines” another chance using precise ingredients and directions from the box exactly... I even took it out a bit early to avoid the dreaded dry crumble. Disappointed again!! I am sick of all my favorite products being changed. Many are going to vegan or gluten free options, and jumping o the healthier bandwagon… which is fine as long as I can still have MY products when I want them… I do t think Duncan Hines is doing that per day, but something has changed dramatically…. And I noticed the change around the time they began selling those individuals cake mix in a mug things, or any of those individual cake mix things. I’m convinced they changed something there at that time.

I agree with all of the other people who say they have noticed a change in the recipe. I’ve been making homemade Oreos, that use this specific cake mix to make the cookies, for over 15 years and today I made them and I could notice a difference immediately. I followed the exact same recipe that I have been using and I’m disappointed that they didn’t turn out like they usually do. They didn’t bake like usual, they’re dry, they seem lighter in color, and don’t taste as rich. Please go back to the normal recipe! Until then, I won’t be purchasing this product.
