My COOP (Cupboard Of OPportunities) yielded an ancient lemon cake mix. Not being a big fan of cake, I went on the Duncan Hines website to see if I could fancy the mix up a bit. I came across this recipe -- easy and delicious. The cake mix turns into something closer to cookie dough, and the finished product isn't as pretty as the boxed kits that you can get, but I liked it well enough.
