Most cake mixes ask for eggs, water, and oil but making the following changes outlined in the video will make your boxed cake taste closer to homemade:
- First, instead of water use milk. It’s richer and adds flavor.
- Second, instead of vegetable oil, use melted butter. Again, it’s all about adding flavor as vegetable oil generally has a neutral flavor.
- Finally, whether the cake mix asks for two or three eggs, add 2 extra egg yolks for added richness.
Please remember that these tips apply to ANY boxed cake mix that asks for water, eggs, and oil and not only to chocolate cake mixes. Now that you have your cake mix ready, you can make these adorable Baby Groot cupcakes to satisfy ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ fans!
