    1 jar of mix refers to the ingredients listed above for the mix. The recipe makes 1 jar.

    I believe whaat Mommalace is asking is what size jar to use to store the cake mix. From I can tell by looking at the ingredient list there is about 5 cups of dry mix, therefore a quart jar and a pint jar would be required. That is alot of cake mix for a 9 x 13 baking pan don't you think?

    We use a qt jar for this mix, it fits fine, the ingredients settle, you just gently shake/tap the jar and then finish filling it. The cake is YUMMY!

    Will this be enough mix to make two 9 inch round layers?

    Made this recipe tonight. got exactly 24 cupcakes out of it. My question, how do you mix the ingredients if you put them in a container for later use? When i mixed it earlier, the shortening would not mix without the dry ingredients flying everywhere. When i made a 2nd batch, i mixed the shortening and sugar first then the rest of the ingredients. This worked but doesn't seem like it'll fit in a container. Am i missing something? Also, we found that more chocolate is needed. They had a hint of chocolate, but nothing like a boxed mix, or any chocolate recipe. We added half a cup and they were better.

    Is there something I could substitute for the eggs? My daughter is allergic to eggs and I haven't been able to find a good substitution in cake mixes. I have tried the following and they either didn't work or tasted odd.
    1 T vinegar + 1 T water + 1 t baking powder = 1 egg
    1/4 cup mashed banana = 1 egg
    1/4 cup apple sauce = 1 egg
    1 T veg oil + 1 T water + 1 t baking powder = 1 egg

    If anyone has another suggestion I would appreciate it.
    Thank you!

    dbsummersun, My Little has the same problem. We use Ener G egg replacer when I bake bread and cakes that call for them. I am even at high altitude 7,500 and I have never had a problem with cakes not rising or being "off" in some way. They have a shop online.

    Does anyone store their mixes in zip bags? I'm looking at an online store and there are tons off options. Wondering if the dry ingredients would fit into a 5x7 bag or smaller for better storage. I don't have room to use jars.

    Have you tried Flax? I've read somewhere it can be used as an egg substitute.

    Pureed pumpkin (found in a can, NOT Pumpkin Pie mix) can sub for both butter and eggs, but may not rise as much, and avocado may work. It can sub for butter, but not sure about eggs. I've seen the flaxseed thing subbed a lot. Use ground flaxseeds mixed with water. NOt sure about the ratio, but I'm sure you can find it if you search "egg substitutes in baking."
