A recipe for making a pound cake from a box of cake mix can be found on Food.com and the Duncan Hines website. Both recipes start with a box of yellow cake mix and make plain, yellow pound cake by adding common ingredients to the mix.
Betty Crocker offers several recipes for pound cake variations using yellow cake mix, such as butter-rum or cranberry orange pound cake. A recipe for pumpkin-chocolate pound cake using a box of chocolate cake mix and canned pumpkin puree is also available on the Betty Crocker site. Each pound cake recipe on the Betty Crocker website also features customer comments, variations and ratings.
