Doctored Cake Mix Recipes



I love to mix and match these muffins with different toppings with one box of cake mix.


I can 24 muffins with this recipe and make an assortment of toppings that makes each one not only different but please a whole crowd wherever I bring them.


Although the maple bacon glazed and the crumb topping is the favorite of all mango muffins asked for, I always leave some plain for those picky eaters, hopefully, you know what I mean there's always one in the bunch!


Also, I always keep the nut topped ones away from any other in a separate container for those with allergies, just another helpful tip.


This mango cake mix muffin is so easy I almost feel guilty for posting this as a recipe it's so simple, but surely you can make that decision on making a mango homemade scratch recipe or this quick fix is right here when you need something in a hurry for that camping trip or outdoor summer barbecue.
