Years ago I tried making brownies with a little water and a can of cherry pie filling. While they tasted good, they were like soft rubber. Spongy. ICKY! I didn’t add any eggs or oil. Now I’m thinking I used the lite version of the pie filling, which was probably a mistake. I might have to try that again.
WELL! The other day I saw a recipe show up on Pinterest where you only use a cake mix, water and Greek yogurt. I’m thinking, no way!!! But, I had to try it. Hey! When you buy a cake mix on sale for 79 cents and the yogurt for 75 cents, why not try it! I looked up the website that went with the pin and found hungry-girl and some fun recipes. This website had several different versions of making boxed cake mixes. What I loved most was they gave a little ditty on each cake and what they thought. It's a fun read, give it a try! Thanks!
OK! I did it. I made this cake.
Only I didn’t like the amount of water the pinterest recipe called for. It just wasn’t enough. It called for 1 cup. I finally added 1 ¼ cup. That made a big difference. I didn’t like the consistency, so I added one egg. The box called for 3. My doctor would like this!
Let me tell you, this cake is awesome! I believe the one egg made a big difference. This cake tasted absolutely delicious! It felt heavy when I picked up a piece, but, it tasted light and moist. It was well worth the try and I’ll try it again on every box cake mix I make from now on.

1 box cake mix
1 1/4 cup of water
Did you notice the piece of cake that’s missing in the picture of the cake pan? You see I like my cake better without frosting. What can I say?
Let me know what you think! Have a good one and thanks for stopping by.
