I have powdered milk and powdered vanilla to take it even further to the wet stage, do you think that would be ok? What would you do for chocolate or other flavors, just experiment? Like lemon or orange extracts or cocoa for other flavors? Sorry, my ideas just started flowing. Thanks for posting, have a cake eating husband. Very excited to have this recipe. What about a box of pudding mix for extra moistness? There I go again....

Terri, you sure can add powdered milk, just change water for milk when making cake! Powdered vanilla you certainly can use, however I prefer pure vanilla extract. If you add cocoa powder you may need to increase sugar. Not sure about the pudding, I'd leave that one could try it and if it did work, write in the instructions (or throw it out!!) LOL done a lot of that in my experimental days!! I love that you have a creative mind!! xo Lyn*
