making cakes taste homemade

making cakes taste homemade

I love DH cake mixes, but to make them taste even better and more moist I found a little trick: add one more egg than directions call for and a slight bit more of both water and oil. I doesn't mess with the recipe nor does it change baking time...but it does taste even more homemade than DH's usually are.
