Review: If you've got kids who like to have a snack after school, Betty Crocker has a cake mix for you. Just mix the cake in a square baking pan and slip it into the oven. The cake fills your home with that great "I've been baking" aroma and emerges from the oven moist and flavorful. If your house is like ours, the pan will be empty before the cake has completely cooled. The Golden Chocolate Chip cake was our favorite of the two flavors we tried. But if you like bananas or walnuts, the Banana Walnut cake won't disappoint.
