Tips

To make a cake moist & fluffy

To make a cake moist & fluffy

To make a cake extra moist and fluffy add a pack of instant pudding to the mix (whatever flavor you are baking) and change the ingredients to 2 eggs, 1/2 cup oil & 1 cup water. Makes a nice fluffy & moist cake every time. Cooking time stays about the same... 25 minutes or so for 2 8' rounds.
