Can you use a cake mix with a homemade cake recipe?

I would like to try making a homemade cake that is mixed with a cake mix, I am thinking of doing the hummingbird cake with a pineapple cake mix. The goal is to achieve a cake to serve a large group of people that will have that homemade taste but is twice as quick to make. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

From the editor:

To make the Hummingbird Cake using a cake mix, make the following adjustments to the recipe we have here on the site:

1. omit flour, salt, sugar and applesauce
2. increase oil to 2/3 cup
3. Follow the original recipe for baking temp, time etc.

This would work with a Yellow Cake mix too.
