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!

How to Make Blank Slate Cake

Step-by-Step

  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.
  5. 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
  6. Have fun! Share your great combinations in the comments!
