Easy Homemade Cake Recipe Idea

This cake is super moist and delicious.  I love that a basic cake mix is used and more dairy products are added to give the cake more creaminess and richness.  I’m also a big fan of cake recipes that only a few minutes to mix up but have a unique flavor.  This is a great easy homemade cake for those potlucks where you want to take a dessert that is a special treat and a little bit unique from basic brownies and cupcakes.

The extra dairy products take a bit longer to set-up during the baking process.  I use a toothpick to determine doneness.  See that hole in the center of the cake?  That’s where I inserted the toothpick and when it came out clean I knew the cake was done baking.

This cake set out for a bit at a party and it was still ooey, gooey, moist and delicious!
