Make a Boxed Cake Mix taste like a Bakery Cake
This little trick came from sister Robin's friend Susan who lives in Paris (Texas). Anything Susan cooks will make you "slap your mama" and this is no exception. These little tricks definitely make a boxed cake mix taste like it came either from a bakery -- or Susan's kitchen!
Step 1: Look at the directions on the cake mix.
Step 2: Add one more egg (or add 2 if you want it to be very rich).
Step 3: Use melted butter instead of oil and double the amount.
Step 4: Instead of water, use whole milk.
Step 5: Mix well and bake for the time recommended on the box.
