How to make Homemade Yellow Cake Mix

How to make Homemade Yellow Cake Mix:
(This is the standard size mix for recipes calling for an 18.25 ounce mix.)
2 cups all-purpose flour

1½ cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ cup non-fat dry milk

1.  Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and non-fat dry milk. 
2.  Store in an airtight container or baggie. Keeps well in the pantry for months!

To replace in recipes calling for a standard-size 18.25 ounce store-bought yellow cake mix:
Use in any recipe calling for a yellow cake mix as a base (add 1 teaspoon vanilla to the recipe along with the cake mix as the recipe will assume vanilla was included in the store-bought mix).
Or to make a basic yellow cake, use the following instructions.

Cake Mix Directions:.
1 recipe Homemade Yellow Cake Mix

¾ cup water

1 teaspoons vanilla
½  cup butter, softened

3 eggs
1.  Place Homemade Yellow Cake Mix in a bowl. Add water, vanilla, butter, and eggs.
2.  Combine with an electric mixer then beat two more minutes. 
3.  Pour into a greased and floured cake pan. 
4.  Bake in a preheated 350° oven, using these baking times (watch carefully as your oven may vary–test for doneness using a toothpick):
·      8″ or 9″ cake rounds — 20 to 25 minutes

·      13” x 9” pan — 35 to 40 minutes

·      Cupcakes — 12 to 15 minutes

·      Tube/bundt pan — 45 to 50 minutes
  Don’t overbake! You’ll dry out your cake.
  Note:  If you don’t like using dry milk in your cakes, you can always leave the dry 
  milk out of the mix. When making the cake, replace water in the recipe with milk.
