DIY Cake Mix Recipes?
Does anyone have one?
I was at a friend's house and she made up these muffins. She used one box of chocolate cake mix and a can of pureed pumpkin. They were sooooo good and DS gobbled them up. I would love to do this, however, I don't like using pre-packaged cake mixes. So, do you have a dry cake mix that you make?
