Looking to impress your friends and family with your baking abilities with as little effort as possible? Well here’s the recipe for you. By simply replacing the ingredients on the box with milk, melted butter, and an extra egg, an ordinary box mix cupcake is transformed into soft, fluffy, buttery goodness.
This helpful hack can be also be applied to any box mix. All you need to do is:
- Replace water 1:1 with milk (ideally whole milk, but you can use any kind you want)
- Replace oil with melted butter and double the amount (1/2 cup becomes 1 cup, etc.)
- Add an extra egg (or two if you want the cupcakes to be very rich, or if you’re using medium eggs)
These cupcakes are ideal for any baker who’s in a rush, a beginner, or who’s just wondering if this hack really works.
#SpoonTip: It totally does and my friends absolutely loved them. It’s sure to become your little secret.
