7 Tips to give cake mix a yummy homemade taste

Some people prefer not to use mixes while some love the idea of having a few of those packets in the kitchen. Whatever your stance on cake mixes are, you will all agree to this one fact that they can always stand a little improvement to bring out the homemade taste. Here are 7 tricks that make boxed cake mix taste better.

7 Tips to give cake mix a yummy homemade taste

Use milk instead of water...
Replacing water with milk make your cakes instantly taste homemade. Then again using buttermilk makes it taste lot richer and creamier. Replace water with a little bit more buttermilk or milk than the recipe.

Add soda...
Adding soda may sound strange, but it sure does help. Try replacing it with dark soda like Coca Cola and Thums Up. It amplifies the flavor tremendously.

Add lemon...
Lemon blends well with cake mix. The tartness will help cut the inherent sweetness of the mix while giving it a new flavor. However, do not add lemon to chocolate cakes.

Add coffee...
Coffee and chocolate blends perfectly. Add coffee to your chocolate cake mix for the yummiest taste ever. Coffee is another suitable replacement for water.

Add a layer of fruit...
Add fruit curd between the layers of the cake. It adds a tart flavor for a break from that sugary frosting, as well as another texture.

Add an extra egg...
Since boxed cake mixes tend to be lighter in consistency, add one extra egg for that richer, thicker and moist cake taste.

Use butter instead of vegetable oil...
Butter has a lot more flavor than vegetable oil, and it makes for a much better texture. Replace the oil with an equal amount of either softened or melted butter.
