I’ve been making your Yum Yum Brownie Muffins for YEARS… I love how simple the recipe is and that it starts with a box of cake mix! Do you have any other similarly easy recipes that call for boxed cake mix? I’m not exactly a “from scratch” type of gal…

Cake Mix a Lot

You and me both! Boxed cake mix is a lifesaver when it comes to whipping up super-easy sweets with fewer calories than standard baked treats. And it’s not just for cake: I use it to make donuts, brownies, muffins, and more. Check out these recipes, and go cake crazy!

HG Tip: To save even more calories and reduce the sugar count, look for low-sugar cake mixes like the kinds by Swerve!

Calorie-Slashed Cake with 3 Ingredients or Less

Forget eggs, oil, butter, and other calorie-dense ingredients. Just one or two smart add-ins will take your cake mix from basic to blissful!

Cake in a Mug

Cake mix + coffee mug + microwave = a single-serve treat in minutes! Perfect for those of us who can’t be trusted around an entire baked cake…

Muffin-Pan Madness

Portion control is the new black, people! It’s fashionable and functional…

Brownie Points

Forget brownie mix… Devil’s food cake mix delivers rich cakey brownies that are a whole lot lighter.

Go Donuts

Baked, not fried, and just the right size!

Slow-Cooker Cake

It’s like a cakey cobbler you can make on your countertop. So lovable (and scoopable)!
