A commercial cake mix can sometimes be the perfect answer to a quick dessert when you are stuck, and yet really want to have something a bit special to serve the family and friends who might be stopping by for dinner. Commercial cake mixes have come a long way from the dry and stale things they were twenty years ago. Today, you can find cake mixes that are entirely organic, if you like, and that use high quality ingredients, are fresh, and offer really excellent results. So do not be afraid to try a cake mix out from time to time. Just do not let them sit in your cupboard forever. A cake mix really does have a shelf life. In that sense, it is better to buy an organic blend for your cake mix because it will usually have a definite shelf life because of the organic nature of the ingredients. That way you can be sure that the ingredients are not several years old already. Cake mixes that get left in your cupboard for more than a short period of time may lose the rising action of the baking powder or baking soda. As well, it is even possible for the flour to sour over time. So do not keep your cake mixes too long, but buy them for the purpose you intend them for, and be sure to use them up quickly.
So this recipe starts with a commercial mix, and then adds eggs and other ingredients in order to bump the recipe a bit and make the flavor more interesting and perhaps taste a bit more made from scratch. The glaze includes fresh lemon, which is always fabulous on a white cake and since it is fresh, will be bright and tangy in flavor.
