My Day Off and Recipe Needed


Today I am not painting and I am not going to Curves to work out.  My back needs a break and so do I.  Today I have laundry to do (or should I say the washer has laundry to do), an article to write for a news site, a nail appointment (yea!) and I will be helping at our last after school children's time of the year at our church.

Do you ever have a "need to research list"?  I do.  I buy a few convenience foods but as I have used these up, I am researching homemade versions.  One of these foods is yellow cake.  I cannot make a homemade version that is as moist as the version that comes from a box.  I don't want to make a homemade batter and have to add a pudding mix, instead I am searching for a yellow cake that has perhaps the ingredients for pudding in it. 

You know that my family is going to enjoy tasting different recipes of yellow cake over the next few weeks. So, if you have a great yellow cake recipe and would like to share it, please leave a comment.

Sorry. no help here. Cake mixes go on sale for 78 cents at Winco, and while they don't taste as good as homemade, that price wins me over every time!

Martha,

I posted a versatile snack cake mix on my blog. I have actually never made the basic version, but the chocolate is very rich, and to me, moist and almost fudgy. Maybe the plain version is more moist like you're looking for. Just a thought...
