    Using butter in a boxed cake mix makes it taste more homemade. Your replacing the oil with butter and the water with milk. Makes it yummy.

    RECIPE CALLS FOR 1/2 CUP MARGARINE. IF YOU’RE MAKING A CAKE FROM A BOX WHY WOULD’T YOU FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS ON THE BOX? LOOKING AT PICTURE – IT IS BAKED IN A 9 X 13″ PAN.
