This nifty little article is an offshoot of a favorite series of books of mine written by a woman who calls herself the “Cake Mix Doctor.”
She specializes in turning ordinary cake mixes into something special by making just a few adjustments. This article doesn’t contain any recipes. It lists a few easy tweaks that allow you to improve the box mix of your choice in a flash.
Did you know that adding a little bit of flour can give moist and airy box mixes a pound-cake like texture. I think my favorite trick of the bunch is switching out water with other liquids to amp up the flavor.
You’ll learn which ingredients to adjust to change cake textures, and the secret ingredients to take your cake flavor to the next level with barely any effort.
You’ll even find super-simple tips for making your cake look like a showstopper. This site is definitely the lazy baker’s friend.
