This is delicious made as directed. If I had more time, I'd try substituting recipe #74497 for the box spice cake mix because I like to cook from scratch when possible. I also appreciated that the ingredients listed the eggs and oil that the cake mix calls for! Smart! And did I mention how quick this is to prepare?! Thanks, 2Bleu! Made for PRMR.
