Cake mixes aren’t exactly expensive, but sometimes homemade mixes aren’t just about saving money, they’re about controlling the ingredients we consume, avoiding unnecessary chemicals/food colorings and preservatives. Here is a delicious make-ahead mix that can be stored in the pantry.

You’ll Need:
8 c. plain flour, sifted if possible, but not required
6 c. sugar
1/4 c. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 c. Crisco (Solid Vegetable Shortening)

Blend all ingredients until the consistency of cornmeal.

Put in a cool place in airtight container. Label. Use in 10-12 weeks. Makes 16 cups

To make a cake:

3 1/3 cups Mix
3/4 c. milk
2 eggs, well beaten
1 tsp. vanilla

Beat until smooth. Bake at 350 degrees until done. (9×13 pan approx 30-35 minutes)
