Cakes…..everyone loves them but no two are alike……or is that just snow flakes? Anyway, I love making cakes and cupcakes for my family but I am still a box cake mix mom. However I modify it some. I firmly believe that my modifications make the box mix taste better. Well, that and homemade frosting.

Here’s what I do:

First instead of water I use evaporated milk. Same amount. I believe this adds a richness to the cake. And bonus….more calcium!

Second, instead of vegetable oil I use butter. Real butter. Scratch recipes call for butter. BUT instead of 1/2 cup I use a whole cup. (2 sticks)

I keep the eggs the same but I also add 1T white sugar. This adds moisture to the cake.

My cakes always come out rich and moist.

Are you willing to try this on your next box mix?
