Quick Mix Cake Recipe

For all ya'll who want my grandmother's recipe, here it is. You can add whatever you want and change the flavoring however you like. Chocolate chips, fruit, whatever. This is the perfect basic recipe for cakes and/or cupcakes. Especially for all the bakers out there. :-D It's copied word-for-word, so don't blame me for spelling! lol. I used the sticks of butter or margerine and it always worked great. Enjoy!!!
