Store until ready to use.

Instructions When Ready to Prepare Cake Batter:

1. Add cake mix to a large mixing bowl. Add eggs, melted butter and water. Blend until well combined.

2. Pour batter into greased and floured cake or muffin pans.

3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake according to times below.

4. Cool cake before frosting.

  • 13″ x 9″ cake pan – bake about 35 minutes.
  • 8″x 8″ round cake pans – bake about 30 minutes.
  • Bundt pan – bake about 45 minutes.
  • Cupcakes – bake about 18 minutes.

I used a store bought frosting for this one, but a chocolate buttercream icing like this one would be fabulous.



I can't wait to try this one using coffee instead of water. ☕️☕️ Then I can eat it for breakfast, right??? 😜
