While it’s much cheaper to make our own cake from a boxed mix, it’s not the same (and not nearly as tasty) as picking out treats from a bakery.

However, with this easy hack from Spoon University, you can make that box of Pillsbury Funfetti taste much richer and so much better.

Ignore the added ingredients listed on the box — usually water, oil and eggs — and do this instead:

  • Swap the water for milk.
  • Replace the oil with melted butter and double the amount.
  • Add an extra egg (or two, if you’re feeling daring).

Spoon University’s Jennifer Nigro swears by this trick. Learn more here.
