serves/makes: 14recipe id: 80889
1 package spice cake mix
4 whole eggs
3/4 cup oil
1 cup milk
1 can caramel frosting
Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Break eggs into a mixing bowl and beat by hand. Add all remaining ingredients EXCEPT frosting. Mix well by hand. Fold in frosting.
Grease and flour a 12 cup tube or angel food cake pan. Pour mix in evenly. Place cake pan on a cookie sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
If you want, only use 2/3 of the frosting in the mix. Microwave the remainder until soft and drizzle over the cake.
NOTE: Do NOT use a mixer to make this cake. It incorporates too much air into the batter and the cake will overflow in the oven. Hence the name "Crawlin Cake".

I've made this cake many many times now using a variety of cake mix flavors and frosting flavors. It's a fool proof recipe and it makes such an amazingly delicious and moist cake. It's a great way to make a cake from a mix and not have anyone know it's not from scratch. My favorite combinations have been the one listed here, chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting, lemon cake with lemon frosting, and white cake with cherry frosting (a beautiful light pink colored cake!).

This is the easiest and moistest cake recipe EVER! I tried it with chocolate cake mix and chocolate frosting...To die for! Thanks for the heads up about not using the mixer!

This cake turned out great! I used a 10" tube pan baked 45 min. the cake
came out firm and moist. I used all the icing in the mix. No "crawlin" cake here!
My husband raved, this will be a favorite in our family. The cake mix I used was
German chocolate and the icing was coconut pecan but the receipe was the same, enjoy!
