    • Make Your Own White Cake Mix

      Homemade White Cake MixMake your own homemade White Cake Mix from scratch to have on hand in your pantry. This recipe is wonderful to reduce food colorings, preservatives and to reduce costs.
      Making your own homemade mix is a cake walk in the park! Simply combine all of the ingredients into a jar or Zip-close style baggie, or vacuum seal bag. Label it with the directions to complete the recipe and voila! You've just created your own convenient homemade White Cake mix.

      To Make 1 Jar of Mix:

      2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
      1/3 cup nonfat dry milk
      3 teaspoons baking powder
      3/4 teaspoon salt
      1 1/2 cups white sugar
      1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon shortening


      White Cake:
      3 egg whites
      1 cup water
      1 teaspoon vanilla extract
      1 Jar Mix (see above!)


      Preheat oven to 350F.
      Grease and flour a 9x13 inch cake pan

      Combine all in a bowl, mixing well, pour into 9x13 greased pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool & Frost as desired.

      This mix will stores well for up to 3 months (depending on your method of storage).

        Perhaps you have a display issue? Are you not able to see the full page? The jar mix is listed directly above the instructions to prepare the cake:

        2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
        1/3 cup nonfat dry milk
        3 teaspoons baking powder
        3/4 teaspoon salt
        1 1/2 cups white sugar
        1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon shortening

        Preheat oven to 350F.
        Grease and flour a 9x13 inch cake pan

        Question about the shortning do you actually store it with the dry ingredients or put in a baggie then in the jar?
