I saw this trick on "The Secret Life of Cake" on the Food Network. Haven't tried it yet, but I will next time I feel like cheating :lol:

I liked the taste of this cake better than using the package ingredients but the cake was a lot more crumbly than I had expected. It did not seem to be as moist but was definitely not dry either. I liked the flavor better though. The cake was more dense and sweet tasting to me. Thank you for the recipe.
