Better Boxed Yellow Cake with Chocolate Frosting
Every Southerner knows the beauty of a good boxed mix. Cookies, cornbread, and muffins are on the table and ready to enjoy in mere minutes thanks to the genius of boxed goodies. They promise a hassle-free trip to the kitchen and almost taste as good as Mama's homemade recipes (almost). Most folks would agree that box yellow cake mix shines above them all. It's classic, versatile, and oh-so tasty. But have you ever wondered how to make yellow box cake taste like homemade? It's actually as easy as swapping out a few key ingredients.
