Boxed Cake Mix + Greek Yogurt Fix

23 Mar


Dear Pinterest and other internet boxed cake lovers,

I decided to making a cake using the Greek Yogurt + 1 cup water + 1 boxed cake mix formula.

Well, actually, I made cupcakes. Anyways, on the internet a lot of people were sad because the cake is not as fluffy this way. I didn’t want to feel sad. So, instead of a cup of water, I put a cup of cream soda. My cupcakes were delightful, in my opinion. They rose up pretty well, and they were springy. I gave some to my parents to try, and they didn’t notice anything weird about them. Success!

This is how I did it. Sorry I didn’t take pictures. The one up top is actually a different box of cake mix, because I’d already thrown the other one out. I used Devil’s Food for my cupcakes.

1 box chocolate cake mix
1 cup 2% Greek yogurt
1 cup cream soda

In a large bowl, I combined the cake mix and the soda. Then, I stirred in the Greek yogurt. It had a mousse-like consistency.

I lined my muffin tins with cupcake papers, and filled them to about three-quarters full. I baked them at 350 degrees Farenheit for about 25 minutes. 


See? Not too bad.

Next time I would use seltzer or mineral water, because I don’t really do soda. I also would mix the cake mix with the Greek yogurt first, and add the soda last, so less bubbles get popped by the stirring.

Tell me how it goes if you try it. I think it worked pretty well.
