This Is How I Hack a Box Cake Mix
Boxed cake mixes make it super simple to make a cake. But did you know you can easily improve your mix to make it more flavorful and unique?
Why Use a Cake Mix?
By altering or adding some simple ingredients, you can make your boxed cake mix taste homemade. Your guests won't know the difference!
Replace your water with coffee to enhance the chocolate flavor. Surprisingly, you shouldn't taste the coffee at all! Use an equal amount of coffee as a water replacement.
Try adding an egg to make your cake more moist and dense. Adding just one egg will thicken you cake, giving it more of a made-from-scratch flavor.
Ditch your oven and use your slow cooker instead. Baking a cake in your slow cooker will help seal in the moisture, giving you a soft and gooey cake.
Adding just a splash of vanilla extract can significantly enhance the flavors of your box mix. Try maple, almond, or mint extract for even more options.
To truly spruce up your box mix, just add some mix-ins. Mix-ins can be anything you have on hand, from chocolate chips to frozen berries or more.
