More Boxed Cake Mix Recipes

Boxed cake mixes are a great time saver, and cost effective too. This time of year, you can stock up on boxed cake mixes at the holiday sales. I noticed that my local grocerty is offering buy one get one free on cake mixes, and savings on other baking ingredients. Don't forget to use your coupons for additional savings too!

With the holidays approaching you may want to prepare desserts and other baked goods for your family and house guests. Here are great boxed cake mix recipes that will have them coming back for more:

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

In a mixing bowl, beat the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs, sour cream and butter on medium speed for 2 minutes. Pour half into a greased 8-in square baking dish. Top with apples.
