Ruby’s Special Chocolate Cake
Busy Plain cooks are happy to start with a box mix and “doctor it up,” when it comes to desserts. This formula is especially good with a chocolate cake mix, but it works for any flavor you choose! Makes a 9 x 13” cake, two 9” round layers, or 24 cupcakes.
1 cake mix, following the directions except:
Replace the water with same amount of milk
Replace the oil with melted butter—and double the amount (1/2 cup becomes 1 cup)
Add an extra egg
(For instance, the cake I make has 4 large eggs, 2/3 cup melted butter, and 1 cup milk).
Pour the batter into sprayed pan(s) and bake according to package directions!
