The Secret To Making Boxed Cake Mix Better
Ok, with every new thing there is a hiccup (no hiccups to this cake recipe – promise – it’s tried and true!). My hiccup is in my Youtube video (below). I’m starting to build the Parent Club Youtube channel (yes, go and subscribe!). However, my hiccup is this: in the video I say to bake it in a 350C oven. My bad. In North America we use Fahrenheit and it should read 350F oven. So use 350F.
Unless you live in Europe – then you’ll want 176C. Anywho….recipe below video…completely print-worthy.
And so that cake recipe…
- 1 box of Cake mix
- 3 large eggs
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 1/4 cup of oil
- 1 package instant pudding (secret ingredient!)
- Put ingredients into medium sized bowl.
- Mix on high for 2 minutes.
- Spray pan with cooking spray
- Spoon in cake mix
- Bake at 350F for 40 min.
Though I try to bake from scratch as much as possible – some times I just have to make my life easier and use a boxed cake mix. I find when I add instant pudding it makes the cake SO MUCH BETTER. And yes, match the cake mix flavour to the instant pudding (i.e. chocolate and chocolate or vanilla and vanilla).
My son has a Christmas birthday – and I’m always “baked out” by the time to bake his birthday cake (from cookies to brownies to butter tarts – everything at Christmas is from scratch here). So, this year I gave myself permission to use The Secret To Making Boxed Cake Mix Better…and know what…everyone LOVED it.
