Organic cake mix
Yummy cake mix, tastes great. You have to add 1 1/4 cup milk, 2 eggs and 1/4 cup of canola oil. The oil really brings up the calories. Nice & fluffy & tasty though. Makes 1 9 X13 or two 8X8 pans.

Easy and delicious
I love this cake mix for its convenience and flavor. It is very easy to prepare and there are no chemicals. I add a teaspoon of baking powder to the mix before preparing.

All my family loves this cake. Very easy to do and the ingredients are not bad at all.

I wasn't sure how this would taste, because we all are very particular about cake here, it is a favorite in our house and we don't like cheap, fake tasting, dried-out cake. But, since I am trying to choose all-natural, organic products whenever possible, I thought we would give this a whirl. If you are use to Duncan Hines cake mixes, then you will probably be disappointed with this. I hate to say it but the vanilla flavor in this cake almost seemed to have a fake, vanillin taste to me. SO, I added 2 teaspoons of Almond extract, and I used milk instead of water. I threw in some sprinkles for the kids and baked it in cupcake pans. It made exactly 24 cupcakes, they baked nicely and had a great sponge texture to them and perfect color as well. They held their shape even after cooling (didn't fall). I cooked them at 325 instead of 350 (my oven cooks hotter) for about 20 minutes. Let them cool 1 minute out of the oven then set them on a wire rack to cool. They do not taste at all like store bought cake, but we took them while still hot, cracked them open a little, and added a dollop of Land'O'Lakes all natural butter and they were delicious! Cooled I would say with some icing they would be ok too. My kids are use to quality cake, so I wasn't sure if this would pass with them, but it has. Makes me so happy to know I can give my family organic cake/cupcakes and there is no guilt (or chemicals!) Just remember, these are different tasting from the store-bought stuff, but if you add some almond extract, and maybe even a spoonful of butter extract or real vanilla extract it will be something you find you enjoy in your home. I will keep "playing" with this mix and see what else I can come up with. Even adding the extracts is nothing compared to all the additives in a boxed mix. A lot of that stuff you cannot even pronounce! I'm sure it will be a staple in our home now.
