        How much butter do you melt in the pan? Is that the 1/2 c of shortening?

        No, shortening and butter are not the same. The shortening is part of the cake mix,the butter is used to caramelize the sugar with the pineapple.

        You can use however much you prefer, we generally use 6-8 TBS.

      Re: improve a cake mix ?

      I like to substitute the Oil with applesauce they change over in equal parts on the measurements & add a small box of pudding mix into the batter.
