Hello everyone! This time of year, people are getting together and spending time with their families. That means lots of laughter, memories, and good food! Speaking of food, today I’m going to show you how to make a yummy cake that tastes amazing without taking too much time. Let’s go!
Things you’ll need:
1. Cake mix (I purchased a mix to make white cake)
2. 4 Eggs
3. Milk (I chose to use buttermilk)
4. A cake pan, or two.
5. Big bowl to mix ingredients in
8. Sprinkles (Optional)
Step One: In your large mixing bowl, pour in the cake mix. Add in your eggs. We want to add in one more than the package calls for, which in my case, brings my total to 4 eggs.
Replace the oil with melted butter. Double the amount. Since I had recently made my own butter (click here for the article on how to make butter at home), I scooped enough to make make one cup, and melted this down. Add to your mixing bowl.
You will also want to replace the water with an equal amount of milk. Instead of regular milk, I decided to use up some of my buttermilk that I had gotten from making butter. When these ingredients are added, mix everything very well together!
Step Two: Spray your pan (or pans) with non-stick spray, and then pour in your cake batter. I chose to use two 9 inch pans. Bake this at the temperature specified for your type of cake pan.
Step Three: When your cake (or cakes, in my case!) are done baking, allow them to cool for about 15 minutes. Then it’s time for the fun part!
I added lemon icing and yellow sugar to one cake, and to the other, chocolate icing and sprinkles. These cakes turned out AMAZING!
