When preparing a cake from a boxed mix, I make the most of the plastic bag the cake mix comes in. I use it to protect my hand when I grease the cake pan, then I just toss it away. —Erma I., Echo, Minnesota
This cake tastes so old-fashioned, you might be tempted not to tell anyone it starts with a mix! A hint of coconut and the tender texture make it simply scrumptious. All you need to dress it up is a dusting of powdered sugar.
