    Has anyone vacuumed sealed this recipe and had it store for longer? I'm looking at making emergency mixes and such for later on and need them to last at least a year vacuumed sealed.

    According to the Crisco website, it has a shelf life of a year after it has been opened. The rest are staples, so I can't see why it wouldn't last longer, especially if vacuumed sealed.

    If I didn't want to add the Crisco to the recipe (I prefer to use butter or lard) how much would I add with the milk and eggs. If the original recipe makes 16 cups I assume you can make about 5 cakes with the original recipe. Without the Crisco, the mix makes about 14 1/2 cups divided by 5 would be about 2 and 7/8 cups of mix. Is this right???

    The basic mix recipe calls for 2 & 1/2 cups of Crisco...divided by 5 (the approx # of cakes the mix will make) it would be 1/2 cup of your chosen fat.

    If making an 8x8 would you just use 1/2 of everything?
