Tips

adding stronger flavor to some mixes

adding stronger flavor to some mixes

I like fruit flavored cakes, but, I find the flavors a bit on the weak side, so, I have a little trick to enhance it. For the lemon cake mix I use some bottled lemon juice in place of some of the water called for, approximately 1/3 of a cup of the juice then the rest of the liquid as plain water makes a stronger lemon flavor. Also, I like pineapple upside down cakebut again I find the original flavor weak, so I use the juice in one can of sliced pineappe and water to bring the liquid up.


For the moistest cake/cupcakes ever...

For the moistest cake/cupcakes ever...

I ALWAYS add a pudding cup to my cake mixture, even if the box says that pudding is already in the mix. It has NEVER failed me and the cupcakes ALWAYS come out so moist that my kids even love to eat them without frosting!
