I’m in the mood to Bake!

Oh how I love the smell of cake baking in the oven! Although, I have a secret… I prefer to bake by using box cake mix!  Sometimes, I’ll use Pillsbury’s Butter Recipe and add cinnamon – or nuts – maybe apples – or pineapple slices – throw in some raisons or mix a bunch of these – anything,  just to kick it up a notch!  Also, by adding 2 tablespoons of flour, it helps take away some of the “box” taste – that’s my mom’s secret!

And if someone prefers blueberries, another chocolate chips and someone else wants it plain – make individual cupcakes – or divide the batter in half and make 2 loaves.  Voila! Everyone is happy!
