How To Make Box Cake Mix Better

Sharing is caring!

About a year ago, I had a great guest post on 5 ways to make box cake better and you guys have been eating it up (HA! No pun intended)!  It is one of my most popular posts to date.  So, I thought it was about time to help you with more box cake recipes.

Sure, making a cake from scratch is a wonderful skill. But the thing about using boxed cake mix is that it’s just so convenient! You can just open the box, dump out the mix, add some eggs, oil, and water, and you’re basically done!

Naturally, easy cake mix recipes are a great way to bake a special dessert when you don’t have a lot of time. If you’re tired of making the same old cakes, though, try these ideas to learn how to make box cake mix better! There are cookies, cakes, muffins, and more you can create from a box cake mix!
