How to make it

  • In a large bowl, sift together cake flour, sugar, baking powder, soda and salt.
  • Mix well.
  • Store in jars or other airtight containers. This mix will keep almost indefinitely on the shelf of the pantry, or your freezer, and you only need use what you want for each specific cake you're about to bake.
  • For a basic white cake, all you need is:
  • 2 cups of the dry mix
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Then, add your favorite flavoring, and mix well.
  • Baking time will depend on the type and size of pan you're using.

    Worked well in a peach cobbler type recipe.
    Worked in a pound cake too.

    I can't understand why you were not given a five rating on this, Chef Elaine. This is a perfect basic cake foundation mix.

    Thanks, saved and printed. I am not a fan of boxed cake, but will give this a try. I have a bar recipe I want to try it in. Can you make it into chocolate?
