Directions

Step 1 –Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2 –Lightly spray a 9×13-inch pan with cooking spray.

Step 3 –Mix the cake mix, the water, the oil, and the eggs together with an electric mixer on low speed for 1 minute, scraping down the sides.

Step 4 –Mix at medium speed until the batter looks thick and well-blended, about 2 minutes.

Step 5 –Pour the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing out the top with a rubber spatula.

Step 6 –Bake until the cake springs back when pressed lightly with your finger and just starts to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 35-38 minutes.

Step 7 –Transfer the cake to a wire rack and immediately poke holes in the top of the cake with a drinking straw or a chopstick.

Step 8 –Place the caramel topping and the condensed milk in a small bowl, stirring to combine.

Step 14 –Slice and serve.
