Tips

Even more delicious

Even more delicious

Once I added all other ingredients I learned we were out of vegetable oil for my milk chocolate brownies. After promising my son we'd make brownies no matter what. I grabbed a stick of butter from the fridge and melted it. I added it to the bowl and we mixed it up. Adding the butter instead of the vegetable oil made these brownies even more delicious!

Moist Cakes and Cupcakes

To improve any box mix, substitute buttermilk for the water in the recipe and add 2 Tbl of instant pudding powder. (Chocolate pudding powder for Choc cakes, Vanilla for all other cakes). Mix and bake as usual, adding a minute or two more to the baking time. The cake will be level on top, for easier icing, and is very moist, tasting like homemade. My family can't believe the difference!
