Homemade Yellow Cake Mix
In my quest recently for dry mixes, I found a Yellow Cake Mix Recipe! It's easy, which I am a BIG fan of! And it includes everything I actually have on hand... Then it can be stored for months, waiting to make you look good when you whip up a HOMEMADE cake....
Here it is:
HOMEMADE YELLOW CAKE MIX
3 C. Flour
2 C. Sugar (or you can replace with honey, if you add the honey when you actually MAKE the cake. DO NOT add honey to your dry recipe. I cannot guarantee your recipe will have a shelf life on it.)
1 Tbsp. Baking Powder
1/2 C. Non-Fat Dry Milk
Combine and store on airtight container. (Enough for one cake mix)
Cake Mix Directions:
1 Recipe Cake Mix
1 1/4 C. Water (If using Honey, use only about 1/2 C. water)
1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 C. Butter, softened
(If you are substituting Honey for sugar, add the honey at this point. Add a little under 2 C. honey)
Place mix in a bowl. Add water, vanilla, butter & eggs (& honey?). Combine with mixer, then beat 2 more minute. Pour into grease & floured cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees.
8" or 9" cake rounds - 25-30 min.
13 x 9" pan- 40-45 min.
Cupcakes - 15-20 min.
Tube/ Bundt pan- 45-50 min.
**If you are baking with honey, make sure you take the temp down about 25 degrees. Honey browns more quickly then sugar does. Thanks Megan!!! :)
In the end, sprinkle the warm cake with a bit of powdered sugar, or with fresh fruit of some sort (strawberries sound DELIGHTFUL. I may pull some from our freezer....). Both sound wonderful...
