Mom's Tips

June 18th, 2013 by Jim Field

  • 4 1/2 cups basic cake mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Grease and flour a 9 x 13 inch pan and set aside.  In a bowl, combine all the ingredients.  Beat until moistened, one to two minutes.  Pour into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.

White cake from mix:  Prepare the batter as for the yellow cake, but use 3 egg whites instead of 2 whole eggs.

Chocolate cake from mix:  Follow the ingredients as for the yellow cake, but add 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder.

Spice cake from mix:  Follow the recipe as for a yellow cake, except add 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice and 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves.
