I stocked up on devil’s food and white cake mixes on clearance for 50¢ each at Walmart a few weeks ago.  I checked the expiration dates, as I have this thing that I can’t eat anything past the expiration date, and they are good well into 2009.  So, I thought I’d share some recipes that use cake mixes.

Cartoon CupcakeMelting Moments Bars
1 box Devil’s Food cake mix
1/4 cup water
2 eggs
1/4 cup margarine
1/4 cup brown sugar
Mix together half of the cake mix with other ingredients then add remaining cake mix. Spread in 9×13-inch pan. Bake 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Quick and Easy Coffee Cake
1 box white cake mix
6 TBsp melted butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Prepare and bake cake mix according to directions on package. Drizzle melted butter over warm cake. Combine sugar, cinnamon (and pecans) and sprinkle over cake.

Cake Mix Bars
1 box cake mix (any)
1 egg
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup water
6 ounces chips (chocolate, peanut butter, white, butterscotch, etc)
Mix first 4 ingredients in a bowl until almost all lumps are gone.  Add chips.  Bake in greased 9×13 pan at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. I’ve made several variations of this recipe as my kids can scarf down a pan of them in one setting.

Jello Cake
1 box white cake mix
1 box flavored gelatin (any flavor)
1 tub whipped topping
Prepare and bake cake mix according to directions on package.  Poke holes in warm cake. Boil 1 cup water. Dissolve gelatin in water. Add one cup cold water. Pour over cake. Cool. Spread cool whip atop. Enjoy!
