    Second2None's Note:

    The recipe is originally from chickensintheroad.com. I posted here for safe keeping and measuring nutritional value. Thank you chickensintheroad for coming up with such a versatile and convenient recipe that can be mixed in no time. Have you ever read the label on store-bought cake mixes? They’re packed with additives, preservatives, artificial coloring, oils, corn syrup, etc. Make up several batches of Homemade Yellow Cake Mix at a time, store in the pantry, and whip ‘em out any time for a quick, easy cake with none of that stuff!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 8

    Yield:

    cake

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and non-fat dry milk. Store in an airtight container or baggie. Keeps well in the pantry for months!
    2. 2
      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).
    3. 3
      Or to make a basic yellow cake, use the following instructions.
    4. 4
      1 recipe Homemade Yellow Cake Mix + 3/4 cup water + 1 teaspoons vanilla + 1/2 cup butter, softened + 3 eggs.
    5. 5
      Place Homemade Yellow Cake Mix in a bowl. Add water, vanilla, butter, and eggs. Combine with an electric mixer then beat two more minutes. Pour into a greased and floured cake pan. Bake at 350-degrees, using these baking times (watch carefully as your oven may vary–test for doneness using a toothpick):.
    6. 6
      Baking Time : 8″ or 9″ cake rounds — 20-25 minutes / 13 x 9 pan — 35-40 minutes / cupcakes — 12-15 minutes / tube/bundt pan — 45-50 minutes.
    7. 7
      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 the water in the recipe with milk.

      This is so simple and worked really well in Cheesecake Bars (Grandma Dircks' Specialty). I'll use this often. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2014.

      I love this recipe! Thanks for posting. I used it for a lot of my cake mix needs, i love that i know exactly whats in it, plus it's extremely cheap to make. Even cheaper than buying the box mix itself at the store. I've used it on the recipe Funfetti cookies #93732. I love it! Thanks again for posting, this is my go-to cake mix recipe now.

      This worked beautifully in Quick Cinnamon Roll Cake #372295. I don't know how it would bake up just as a yellow cake, but in this recipe it was decadently rich and moist. I will use this again and again!
