Sneaky Chef quick fix for chocolate cake mix



  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup purple puree (see make-ahead recipe below)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup wheat germ
  • 1 cup box (about 18 ounces) chocolate cake mix (such as duncan hines® moist deluxe® classic cake mix)


Baking Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a cake pan (then lightly flour) or muffin tin (lined with muffin cups).

In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine eggs, Purple Puree, water, and dry ingredients.

Blend at low speed for 30 seconds, then increase speed to medium speed for another 2 minutes.

Pour batter into cake pan or muffin tins.

Bake cake for 33 to 36 minutes, cupcakes for 18 to 21 minutes (both until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean).
