Home made Yellow Cake Mix

 Now cake mixes are cheap enough  but if you want to stack you cupboards with some yellow cake mix that does not come with preservatives here is a good recipe from Chickens in the Road

For each mix
place in a large bag or container
2 c flour
1 1/2 c sugar
1 Tbs baking powder
1/2 c dry milk powder- (this can be expensive so you may omit and substitute milk for the water when mixing)
Mix these and store until use. On the bag I  wrote the instructions...just in case I loose them, not that I loose things. pfft!

When mixing the cake
1 bag of mix
3/4 c water ( or milk if substituting)
1 tsp vanilla (see home made vanilla recipe here)
1/2 c room temp butter
3 eggs, room temp
Spray or line pans with parchment and bake according to pan size.

I used two mixes for the above cake, and had enough left over for 4 mini cakes. You can see a recipe for home made fondant HERE

Brilliant Shannon. I love this idea. Thankyou so much for the versatile blogger award. I am so thrilled. I've actually received this a few times and blogged about it I haven't blogged about again ( The world might get bored with 10 more facts about Ava) I hope that's O.K. I just didn't want you to think I wasn't extremely grateful xx
