      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?
