It’s summer and I’m not really feeling like doing much of anything. I don’t know what it is about the warm weather, but it brings out the lazy in me in full force. I’d be totally happy to spend my days reading on my front porch or leisurely strolling around my neighborhood. But I’m also a huge fan of baking and even my lazy summer self can’t give up sweets entirely. That’s why I was so excited when I discovered cake mix recipes. Maybe I’ve been living under a rock, but I’d never heard of them before. But now that I have I’m totally hooked. I mean, look at how yummy they look:
Since I love making lists, here are the top 3 reasons why I love cake mix recipes:
- It sort of goes without saying but cake mix recipes are totally easy to make. Just pour a pre-packaged mix in a bowl, add a few other ingredients and bam, you’ve got yourself a yummy cake without barely any effort!
- There are so many different types of treats you can make using cake mix. No, it’s not just cake. You can make cake mix cookies, cupcakes, brownies… even cinnamon rolls!
- You can fool your friends! I’ve made quite a few delicious desserts to serve at parties, and my friends are always begging me for the recipe. I won’t give it to them though; I like to think that my cake mix recipes are my little secret!
