- 1 box (18.25 Oz. Box) White Cake Mix
- 1 cup All-purpose Flour
- 1 cup Sugar
- ¾ teaspoons Salt
- 1-⅓ cup Water
- ⅛ cups Vegetable Oil
- 1 teaspoon Real Vanilla
- 1 teaspoon Almond Extract
- 1 cup Sour Cream
- 4 whole Egg Whites
Place all dry ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir together with a wire whisk.
Add the remaining ingredients and beat on medium speed for 2 minutes.
Pour into greased and floured cake pans, filling each pan a little over half full.
Bake in a preheated 325-degree oven until cake tests done. Baking time varies depending on the size of pans used.
For a chocolate cake, use a chocolate cake mix and substitue 3 whole eggs for the egg whites.
To add liqueur flavors, substitute alcohol (champagne, Kahlua, etc.) for 1 cup of the water.
