Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom and sides of 13x9 inch pan and lightly flour, or spray with baking spray with flour. Make cake as directed on box, using water, oil and eggs. Pour into pan. Bake as directed on box. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
