How to make it

  • Put flours into the bowl of a food processor.
  • Add sugar, baking powder and salt and process until blended.
  • Cut shortening into 4 or 5 chunks, then add to flour mixture and pulse until completely incorporated.
  • Use cake mix immediately or store in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
  • To complete cake: add 2 eggs, 1 cup milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • For vegan: substitute 1/2 cup applesauce for eggs and substitute 1 cup plain unsweetened soy milk, where there is ONLY soybeans and water on the ingredients. Any other ingredients, even when it says unsweetened, can alter the taste.
  • Bake 350. For 9- x 13-inch cake, for 40 to 50 minutes; two 8-inch cakes, check after 25 to 35 minutes, or until done when tested with a toothpick.

    I just made this "box" cake again and I amaze myself every time. I substituted lemon juice because I was out of vanilla and WOW! A creamy, moist cake with a hint of lemon that DD asks for time and time again. I will try to remember to take a picture of the cake and post it here.
