Last week, I was trying to make a cake last week and I realized I was out of cake mix. I know how to make cake from scratch…it’s just that I really, really like those little boxes that take two minutes, two ingredients, done. So…I thought…I could totally make those on my own!
Here’s the recipe I used, but I am certain you could use almost any cake recipe you love!
Chocolate Cake Mix
3 cups of flour,
2 cups of sugar
8 tablespoons of cocoa
2 teaspoons of baking soda
2 teaspoons of salt
Mix and add to a plastic bag. I made up several bags so I would have them next time I was in a cake making mood.
Label the outside with the wet ingredients needed
2 cups of cold water
2 teaspoons of vanilla
2 tablespoons of vinegar
3/4 cup of oil
Bake for 25-30 min. at 375 degrees
Thanks to A Lighter Journey for passing along this recipe for a DIY cake mix. Super easy and a time saver when made ahead of time!
