2 cup Organic All-Purpose White Flour
1.25 cup Granulated Sugar
.75 tsp Baking Powder
.5 serving dry milk powder (23g makes 1 cup of milk)
You can stop here. Transfer to an airtight container or large mason jar for storage. Keep in a cool, dark, dry place, or even in the freezer, until ready to use.
To make the cake, add:
.75 cup (8 fl oz) Water, tap
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
.25 cup Butter, salted
.25 cup Sour Cream, reduced fat
3 large Egg, fresh, whole, raw
Note: you can also bake this cake in a sheet pan or as cupcakes. In a 13x9-inch pan, the bake time will be 35-40 minutes, whereas cupcakes in cups filled 2/3 of the way full will take 12-15 minutes.
To substitute this mix for a commercial yellow cake mix in a recipe:
This cake mix can be substituted for a standard box cake mix, which makes it easy to use for "doctored" cake mix creations. However, since the cake mix does not contain vanilla and commercial varieties do, be sure to add 1 teaspoon of vanilla to whatever recipe you are making.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two 8 or 9-inch baking pans with parchment paper, and grease and flour. See our blog post on how to prepare a cake pan.
Combine all of the ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer. Mix on low at first, until the mixture begins to come together. Increase the speed to high, and mix for about 2 minutes, or until the mixture is smooth and lump-free.
Pour the batter into the prepared pans, and bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes in your pans. Immediately run a sharp knife along the perimeter of the pan after removing from the oven, to loosen the sides of the cake.
Let cool for several minutes, and then invert onto a wire rack. Remove the parchment paper, let cool, and frost and decorate as desired.
Serving Size: 1/12 of the cake
Number of Servings: 12
