Traditionally a preacher's cake has a dense texture resembling that of a crumb cake. If you prefer a cake with a fluffier, more traditional, cake texture, prepare cake batter as directed, using 3 eggs and adding 3/4 cup water to the batter before pouring into prepared pan and baking as directed.
Adjusting Bake Temperatures for Cookware
The type of baking dish you use can affect your results. Dark coated metal pans conduct heat more efficiently than uncoated metal or glass pans, which can result in overbrowning or even burning. If using a coated metal pan, reduce the baking temperature by 25°F to combat this.
Prepare using a yellow cake mix, and adding 2 tsp. ground cinnamon to cake batter before pouring into prepared pan and baking as directed.
