Bake the Perfect Cake Using Cake Mix

This is a very simple way to turn store-bought cake mix into a delicious cake that tastes like it was made at a bakery. Follow all of the directions and baking instructions on the box, with these exceptions. *Add one or two more eggs than the box calls for. *Instead of using oil, use butter and double the amount that the box calls for. *Replace water with milk. Doing this will result in a better taste and better texture for your cake. I have done this many of times and everyone thinks I made my cake homemade or bought it from a bakery!

The additional calories are scary but if that will make the cake more fluffy and test less manufactured, I am in.

Yes, this is not for those watching their calorie intake, but it sure is good.

That's positively devilish, and you an angel Now here's another tip. Fill empty spring water bottles with water from a filter jug, and they'll never know the difference!

It's tricky to do with boxed cake mix unlike cooking baking is more of a science but it's fun and if you get it right it's worth the trouble and risk of a mess up

I've never found baking a simple from scratch cake to be that much of an issue.
