I usually don’t prefer box cakes but sometimes when convenience calls, I end up using one, but with my twist so it ends in a moist and delicious homemade like cake. I have used King Arthur Gluten free yellow cake mix for this recipe which is super moist and fluffy.

  • Bake as directed in the cake mix package for about 35 to 40 mins or until the center of the cake rises and a tooth pick inserted comes out clean.
