💭How to make box cake taste homemade
If this is your first attempting to make a cute, adorable reindeer cake with your family, I recommend using a boxed cake mix. That way you're not stressing over following a homemade cake recipe.
A boxed cake mix is a quick and easy way to make a cake, but sometimes it can taste a bit too store-bought. There are a few simple things you can do to make your box cake taste more homemade.
- First, add an extra egg to the batter. This will give the cake a richer flavor and a more dense texture.
- Second, replace the water called for in the recipe with milk. This will also add richness and depth of flavor.
- Finally, add a bit of vanilla extract. This will boost the flavor of the cake without adding any additional fat or calories.
