Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size-Wise
Enjoy your favorite foods while keeping portion size in mind.
Variation
Cake can be baked in 12-cup fluted tube pan or 10-inch tube pan instead of the 13x9-inch baking dish, reducing the baking time to 35 to 45 min. or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan 10 min. Invert onto wire rack; remove pan. Cool cake completely. Frost as directed.
