For the longest time, I would stare at cake batter recipes on Pinterest longingly, wanting to make them but also realizing that I would never buy cake mix. No offense to anyone that does, but I pride myself on cooking from scratch, and cake mix is the opposite of that.
Finally, I stumbled across this recipe from one of my favorite blogs, The Brown Eyed Baker. It makes a *ton* of cake mix, so get all your favorite cake batter recipes ready before you make it. Luckily, it keeps for 2-3 months in the freezer.
(OK, so it doesn’t look like much, but it will change your life)
Yellow Cake Mix, (via Brown Eyed Baker)
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups cake flour
1/2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup salted butter, cold and cut into small cubes
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1) In a food processor, combine the flours, sugar, milk powder, and baking powder. Process for 15-20 seconds.
2) Add butter and vanilla, and process until the mixture is fine and crumbly. For me, this took about 15-20 seconds.
3) Store in an airtight container, and either use right away, or store in the freezer. Should be good for two months, if it takes you that long to use it!
