In an ideal world we’d all have the time, the patience and the resources to make every cake from scratch, but we all know that sometimes, we just have to go the boxed route. That doesn’t mean our cakes have to be subpar! Rachael Ray is here with ways to hack your boxed cake mix to make cakes just as delicious as anything from a bakery or from scratch.
4 Brilliant Tricks to Improve Your Boxed Cake Mix
- For chocolate cake, if the box calls for water, use hot water. It’ll wake up the flavor and make it more chocolatey.
- Add two extra egg yolks – no matter how many eggs are required – for extra moisture and density.
- Does the recipe call for vegetable oil? Ignore that instruction and use melted butter instead! Your cake will be richer and more flavorful.
- You know how if you make a multilayer cake, you have to slice off the top of one or more of the layers? Prevent wasted cake by sprinkling sugar over the top to prevent the cake from rising too much.
