How To Make A Box Mix Taste Like A Bakery Cake
As a baker I have tried many of cake recipes and this is my favorite. It is very easy to make and it results in a very moist cake. One thing a lot bakeries don’t tell you is they use a cake mix. It is a great way to control their product to make sure each cake will be the same. Most of them have there own way of changing up the mix and this way is my favorite. This can be make with any flavor cake mix so you can make a chocolate cake or lemon cake with the same recipe. You can also switch out the vanilla extract to match the cake flavor you chose. This makes the amount of batter as if you used 1 1/2 boxed mixes.
