Duncan Hines Classic Yellow 2-Layer Box Cake (NuWave Oven Recipe)

Ingredients:

As instructed on the box:

Duncan Hines Classic Yellow Cake mix.
1 cup water
1/3 cup oil (I used canola oil)
3 eggs  (I used large eggs)
a little flour
Pam cooking spray

Instructions:

1) You’ll need 2 round 9″ cake pans.  Pans with good non-stick coating and spray them with Pam cooking spray, then lightly flour the pans.
2) As instructed on the box, mix all the ingredients with a mixer, first on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium for 2 minutes.
3) Pour the cake batter into the cake pans.  Split it between the 2 pans evenly.
4) Place one pan with mix on the 1″ rack.  Put the other pan into the refrigerator to cook 2nd.
5) Heat the first at high power for 25 minutes.  Portions of the top may grow and split.  Use a toothpick to check whether the inside is fully cooked.  Be sure to check the middle areas and inside areas where the top split.
6) Remove the first pan from the NuWave Oven and set aside to cool for 1 hour.  I placed it on the 4″ rack on a cool counter.
7) While the first pan is cooling, take the 2nd pan from the refrigerator and place it on the 1″ rack of the NuWave Oven.
8) Heat at high power for 25 minutes.  Portions of the top may grow and split.  Use a toothpick to check whether the inside is fully cooked.  Be sure to check the middle areas and inside areas where the top split.
9) Remove the 2nd pan from the oven and set aside to cool for 1 hour.
10) Once cooled, you can apply icing to both and stack them as a 2 layered cake.
11) Enjoy!

Note: I’ve found the NuWave Oven cooks this cake much better than the Super Wave Oven. The Super Wave Oven’s halogen lamp causes the top to over cook/burn.
