Most definately. I read it over and over again on here, milk gives it more pizazz. One for one, whatever amount of water a recipe calls for you use milk... When you need to thin down something use milk instead of water.

I do every time. I used to substitute the whole water for milk but I found it too moist and my cakes were falling apart so now I use 1/2 and 1/2. I also will use coffee mate liquid coffee creamer in place, it makes the cakes moist and oh so yummy icon_biggrin.gif

I use to put water in my cake mix. When I found out that milk or even coffeemate creamers work better, I've been using milk ever since.

Matter of fact last week I made a nothing cake and it was white cake mix with pineapple juice and it had crushed pineapple and coconut and raisins and nuts in it and it was yummy....


Just remember you can use any liquid in place of water or milk.. if you want say a coconut cake you can use coconut milk....

I have definitely learned something new today....did not know you could substitute any kind of liquid for the water in a cake mix....thank you for the great tip!!!

When I make lemon cakes I will sub about 1/3 of the liquid (really depends on the zing you want) with lemon juice. It is so yummy. then i will put just a touch in the frosting so the icing and cake flavors blend with each other.

I haven't yet tried substituting the water for milk, but am going to try that. Some people also substitute sour cream for the water.

Yes! You can substitute the water for milk, or juices. If you use milk however, don't use sour cream as it will change the consistency of the cake.

how does milk and sour cream make the cake taste??

Lisa Posted 15 Apr 2005 , 7:05pm

I haven't noticed a difference in taste when using milk. The cake is usually moister though so it does taste better. To me, sour cream seems to enhance the taste of any cake and will make the cake much more dense.

I never use water- always milk, buttermilk or coffee creamer. I do have one exception: Pineapple upside cake I use pineapple juice.

stephanie214 Posted 25 Apr 2005 , 7:06am

I use sour cream, have never used milk eventhrough my sister uses the milk. Will give it a try.

veejaytx Posted 25 Apr 2005 , 10:59am

On the advice of many here on CC, I started using milk instead of water, and it did improve my cakes. The cake I baked on Friday I used sour cream, but in that one I used water, seemed like using both milk and sc would be a bit much. I haven't tried the coffee creamers as yet, but plan to. I also want to try some of the Lorann's flavorings, I especially want to try the cream cheese flavor in bc icing, to have the cream cheese flavored icing without having to refrigerate it! Janice

I use sour cream & milk in the yellow cake recipe I use for wedding cakes. It doesn't change the consistency one bit. It's sooooooo delicious!!
