Chocolate Cake Mix

This is a handy mix to have on hand in the pantry or freezer to make a cake quickly for the times you need a dessert to take to that friend's house or your child's party you just remembered is tomorrow at 7pm the night before. It contains ingredients you can pronounce☺ with no added chemicals and you only need to add water, eggs and vanilla.  You can package it nicely with a foil pan, some sprinkles and a kitchen towel to give as a gift for somebody's birthday or the holidays.


2 cups sugar
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1/3 cup instant dry milk powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
Additional ingredients to make cake
2 cups water
1/2 cup oil
2 large eggs

Mix Directions

In a bowl whisk together sugar, flour, cocoa, dry milk, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Place in labeled quart size bag or container. Store in pantry or freezer.

Cake Directions
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray or grease and flour two round cake pans or one 13"x9" pan. Blend the dry cake mix(above)with water, oil, and eggs in a large bowl with the mixer at low speed until just moistened. Kick up the speed to medium and mix about 2 more minutes. Pour batter into pan(s)and bake 30-35 minutes for the round pans and 35-40 minutes for the 13"x9" pan. If you wish to make cupcakes, bake for 20-22 minutes. (With all of the above check with cake tester to see if cake is done.)
