How to Make Boxed Cake Mix Taste Homemade.


I love making homemade goodies, but sometimes I just don’t have enough time to bake from scratch. Enter, boxed cake mix! I also think it’s excellent to use while baking with the boys since they still feel like they’re doing something without creating quite as much as a mess! 🙂 Ideally, I can still make it taste homemade though! So far, I have successfully tricked my husband. He raves how amazing it tastes. Mission Accomplished!


So without further ado, here’s how to make boxed cake mix taste homemade!


  • Grab your favorite boxed cake mix
  • Read the directions on the box
  • Now, add one to two extra eggs than it calls for — one for kinda rich and two for extra rich
  • Next, instead of using veggie oil, use butter and double the amount
  • Finally, use milk instead of water


Mix together, bake and enjoy! Our family loves this! It tastes great and works fine for sheet cake or cupcakes.
