I'm planning to doctor my cake mix so that I end up with a denser, more 'homemade' tasting cake for my son's birthday.

I plan to replace the oil with butter, and the water with milk. Do I need to replace the water, or should I just leave it as is and only substitute oil for butter?

TIA!

I usually use milk but that is just my preference. The taste has come out alright and the cake has handled nicely.

I do the cake extender recipe which essentially to a vanilla box cake i add 1 C sugar, 1C flour and 1C sour cream, 1 extra egg and a dash salt. They taste YUMMY. I use Duncan Hines when I use a box mix.
