So how do you make a homemade cake mix? How do you make the mix into a jar gift? It is really pretty easy, I have the ingredients for each outlined below. The dry ingredients go into your jar, and the wet ingredients and instructions you write on a pretty note and tie it to your jar with a pretty ribbon
2 1/2 cups flour
2 1/4 cups white sugar
1/3 cup instant nonfat dry milk
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
What to add to dry mix to bake:
3 large eggs
3/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon vanilla
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Coat a 13 x 9 baking pan with cooking spray
With an electric mixer, beat 1 1/4 cup water, oil, eggs and vanilla on slow until combined
Add the dry mix and beat on medium until well combined and smooth
Pour into cake pans and bake about 25 minutes and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean
Let cool in the pan for 5 to 10 minutes then remove from the pan and let cool completely before frosting. If you prefer, you can leave it in the pan to cool and just frost the top.
Have a great week!
