  1. :jar: Thejar mix refers to the dry mix ingredients listed in the top half of the recipe. Mixes are often made ahead in ziploc bags or jars, then a tag is attached to it with the instructions for completing the recipe.

  2. i am going to make 1/2 this dry mix and use it with 1/2 can pumpkin to make a small
    batch of pumpkin muffins. One of the benefits of making your own mixes is the ability to easily change the batch size.

      Have you tried this yet if so how did it turn out

  3. If I’m going to use this in a dump cake that calls for butter, do I still need to add the shortening?

    Yes. store bought cake mixes also already have shortening as well.

  4. Do you cut the shortening into the mix and then store it in the pantry or are we talking about powderedshortening?

    When you say a “jar” is the dry mix recipe at the top one jar?

  5. Dreamer,
    I make pumpkin muffins for my kids all the time using a box of spice cake mix (now I will use this recipe) and 1 can of pure pumpkin. The batter is incredibly thick and the muffins come out lumpy looking, but it is amazing.
