How to Doctor a Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix

How to Doctor a Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix.

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.
