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.

Flouring Pans

When you are baking a chocolate cake (red velvet) after greasing the pan(s), instead of using flour ... I use cocoa powder. You do not have a "white crumbling crust" on your yummy chocolate cake!
