Did you know that you could do a few simple things to make a boxed cake taste like homemade?
What to doFirst, substitute buttermilk for water. Where the directions call for 1 cup of water, substitute with 1 1/4 cups of buttermilk.
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.
