Better Boxed Cake

by Sep 28, 2019Cakes, Chocolate, Dessert

I am not gonna lie I LOVE cake, especially chocolate. This hack makes a boxed cake taste like it came straight from the bakery, the best part is it works for any flavor! The best part is you probably have the ingredients in your fridge already!



  • 1 boxed cake mix (any flavor/brand) 
  • Butter
  • Milk
  • Eggs


  1. Follow instructions on your box for preheating oven
  2. Replace the oil with an equal amount of melted butter.
  3. Replace water with an equal amount of milk (we usually have 2% in the fridge so I use that, but if I were to plan ahead I would use whole or maybe even half & half!)
  4. Add an additional egg to what the box asks for
  5. Bake according to box instructions.
