Jenni's notes for this recipe:
This makes a denser cake than a normal boxed cake mix. It's a "semi-homemade" cake, and you can mix any sorts of flavors to create endless varieties! I got this basic recipe from my cousin who has been hired to make wedding cakes and countless birthday cakes. Have fun experimenting!

Directions

1
Preheat oven to 325. Spray pan(s) with "non-stick spray with flour"
2
Blend the sugar with the oil, eggs, liquid of choice, extract(s), and sour cream/yogurt.
3
In a separate bowl, combine cake mix, cake flour, and pudding mix. Slowly add into the wet mixture. Beat well.
4
Pour into prepared pan(s). (cupcake tins, 2 - 8" or 9" rounds, or 1 normal cake pan) Bake at 325. About 18-20 minutes for cupcakes. Start checking cake at about 45 minutes until center springs back when lightly touched or toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Tips:
*Coffee is a very good flavor enhancer to chocolate. You can put in 1 C of coffee, or use 1 C of water & a T of instant coffee granuales in the mix.
*Be creative with your liquids. Juice, soda, coffee, melted juice concentrate, melted ice cream, flavored coffee creamers, margarita mix, etc)
*chocolate cakes may need more liquid, as they are a bit thicker
