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!

  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!
