I thought I saw a carrot cake recipe using a box mix. I'm having trouble with the advanced search feature. Usually I can put ingredients in and search the community forms but its not pulling anything up.
Does anyone have a carrot cake recipe using a box of spice cake mix? I found some on sale and bought one thinking I could turn it into a carrot cake?
This is a family favorite -
