Baking is a skill that one needs to practice over and over again to be able to make the best-tasting cake. And not all of us are indeed invested in learning this skill. Good thing we have cake mixes. But you might ask, “how to make a boxed cake mix taste homemade?”. Don’t worry, as Mashed will teach us hacks to make our cake taste more flavorful and expensive. From coffees to soda, you’ll be surprised how it will change the flavor of your batter.



Here are some tips to make your boxed cake mix taste homemade:

1. Dairy Delish

Use real milk for the water in a boxed cake mix to deliver more flavor and richness to your cake. Adding milk also increases the denseness of the cake. You can also substitute real butter for the oil. The buttery flavor gives a taste of homemade. Just make sure to melt it first so it will mix well with the batter.

2. Creamy substitutes

Add some mayo to your batter. It’s not as crazy as it sounds, as mayonnaise is made from eggs and oil. Add tablespoons or up to 1 cup to boost the flavor and make your cake extra moist. For some zing and texture, add yogurt to your cake mix. For even more flavor, you can add sour cream. Did you know you can also use ice cream as a substitute? Sub the oil and water for the melted ice cream.

3. Use soda

Mix the dry cake mix ingredients with a 12-ounce can of soda and bake. The Huffington Post has a helpful list of flavor combinations that you can look at.

4. Mocha masterpiece

For a mocha kick, try to mix coffee with the batter. A few tablespoons of stong-brewed coffee will boost the cake’s chocolatey taste without the hint of coffee.

5. Juice it up

Consider using orange juice for yellow cake mix or apple juice in a spice cake.  You can also sub the liquids with coconut milk or chocolate milk.

6. Experiment with eggs

According to celebrity chef Sara Moulton, eggs can provide structure, leavening, richness, color, and flavor to baked products.

7. Homemade frosting

Make your own frosting. For the simplest vanilla buttercream, you only need butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk.

8. Candy crush

Candy makes everything taste better. If you will use large candy bars, be sure to chop them into bite-sized pieces. With soft or chocolate candy, freeze them overnight.
