To make cake
Preheat the oven to 350℉ (180℃) F.
In a large bowl, add the dry mix, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup of coffee (or water) and 1/2 cup melted butter.
Beat until there are no lumps remaining and pour into a greased cake pan.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the centre.
Cool in the pan for 1 1/2 hours.
When cool, remove and frost or use as desired.
A double-batch of this mix bakes up nicely in a 13x9 inch dish; bake for 35 to 45 minutes in that case.
