Do not follow box directions. Mix all ingredients together & combine well then beat 2 min w/electric mixer. Bake approx 20 - 25 minutes or until tested done. Cool layers & use your favorite frosting. Bake about 10 minutes longer for a bundt cake. Basically follow the cooking time on the box.
Note: You can use three 8" cake pans or two 9" cake pans. I also make this in a bundt pan.
