Annette's Story

This is the easiest way to turn your plain box cake mix into gourmet quality cake in an instant. The great thing about it is you don't have to buy anything extra because everything you need, you most likely have in your refrigerator and pantry.

By following these easy steps, you will make your cake taste as if you just payed top dollar at a popular bakery.

Try it just once the next time you use a box cake mix and wait to see how many people ask you where you purchased your cake. Then watch their face when you say "no where, I made it myself"!

Ingredients

1 box
any flavor cake mix
melted butter
milk
1 extra egg
splash of vanilla or almond extract

Directions Step-By-Step

1
When preparing the cake mix, replace the oil with equal parts melted butter. Replace the water with equal parts milk.
2
Add one extra egg then the recipe calls for and add a splash of vanilla. You can also use almond extract if you prefer.

This really does make a world of difference. Never added the extra egg before, though. Will do that next time. Thanks, girl!!!
