    This is Paula Deen's recipe. Can be made with any cake mix. Can change out the type of extract to rum, coconut, almond depending on the flavor combination you like. Most of my friends enjoy the chocolate with almond combo but my husband's favorite is the yellow cake mix with lemon extract. It's also fun to add toffee bits or chocolate chips.

    LOL... it was on the back of a box of Ginger Evan's Yellow cake mix mix last summer. I have never watched Paula.....I wonder if we both shop at the discount grocery!! You are right about it being great with toffee bits and I even used dried bluberries once...yummy!

    Kathy, where do you think Paula Deen got the recipe????
    Why call it her recipe, she does not come up with all the recipes she has on her show (I know for a personal fact).
