This recipe is moist and delicious, wonderfully enhanced. I have been making my Betty Crocker Yellow Cake mix this way for so long, I have no idea why I never posted it. Maybe because it disappears as fast as I make it and I never end up snapping a picture. I must confess though, I originally was inspired by this recipe from a "version" of this on a blog somewhere, it had 5 eggs, one extra yolk. I am so sorry I never could find that source again to credit them. They are pure creative genius.
I first tried Betty Crocker yellow boxed cake mix when I just started going gluten free and regular gluten filled cakes were still fresh in my mind. I was turned off by the graininess of the cakes. I am sorry Betty, I mean no disrespect. I am truly grateful that this mix exists and is main stream. I just needed to work with it like I do everything else. It's a sort of a flaw of mine, I know. I set out to doctor up the cake mix to suite my taste. What I ended up with is good. Very good. When I make it for birthdays nobody realizes it is Gluten Free. It's hysterical how self declared anti-gluten eating folks gobble this up and never realize what they just had WAS gluten free. Tee hee, makes me giggle in delight.
