Second, substitute butter for oil. Where the directions call for 1/2 cup of oil, substitute with a 1/2 cup of butter.

Third, add more eggs.  Where the directions call for 3 eggs, substitute with 4 eggs.

Forth and final, add vanilla extract.  Now, to give it that real homemade taste . . . add a teaspoon of vanilla extract or any flavorings that you desire.

No one will ever know its from a box, unless you tell them.
