For a morning treat, try this Buttermilk Breakfast Cake. It is a delicious addition to any breakfast or brunch buffet. The recipe calls for white cake mix and replaces sour cream with buttermilk. Doesn’t that drizzle of Buttermilk-Vanilla Glaze look amazing?!


This recipe for Sweet Hummingbird Cake uses banana cake mix to simplify Southern Living's popular Hummingbird Cake recipe. In addition to banana cake mix, the cake batter calls for crushed pineapple, banana, milk, eggs, and vanilla extract. Once the batter is blended, bake the cake in a Bundt pan and finish it off with store-bought vanilla frosting and pecans.


Calling all chocoholics! This Fudgy Pudding Cake is made with devil’s food cake mix, instant chocolate pudding mix, sour cream, and chocolate chips making it extra chocolaty and extra moist. Enjoy just a slice of cake or pair it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream to make a decadent double dessert.


A box of white cake mix, fresh strawberries, and strawberry gelatin give this Triple-Decker Strawberry Cake its fruity flavor, and the Strawberry Buttercream Frosting makes for a perfectly pink coating. This cake requires just 23 minutes of baking, and can be served immediately or chilled for up to one week!
