Sadly, we don’t have all the time in the world, the patience and the resources to make every cake from scratch, so we have to take the boxed route. But that doesn’t mean our cakes have to be bad.
Rachael Ray is here with ways to hack your boxed cake mix to make cakes that are just as delicious.
Watch the video for the tips and then read on for more!
If you couldn’t catch up then here’s some written guide…
- For chocolate cake, if the box calls for water, use hot water. It’ll wake up the flavor and make it chocolaty.
- 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.
