I don’t know about you- but I get sort of frustrated when I go to print off a recipe & it calls for cake mix. Especially when it’s a flavor I don’t keep on hand – like Red Velvet Cake. I do like the ease of using cake mix so I have a few flavors I keep in the pantry for when I need something quick. But more & more I am making things from scratch & keeping less & less of these pre-packaged boxes in the kitchen. So after finding several recipes that called for red velvet cake mix & not having any on hand – I decided to make my own so I could make red velvet cake for Valentine’s Day.
Red Velvet Cake Mix
Don’t get me wrong- if I kept a large variety of cake mix flavors on hand I wouldn’t be frustrated at all. But I do like being able to print off a recipe & go in my kitchen & create what I have been craving while using things I keep continually stocked in my kitchen- usually in bulk. Things like flour & sugar I buy in the bulk 50lb bags & I try to always make sure I have plenty of cocoa powder & other things that I use several cups at a time on a daily basis. It just makes being in the kitchen so much easier when I can pull from what I have & satisfy that craving. So this jar mix is perfect for that.
To create the mix – follow these instructions & then print the tag with the remaining ingredients & instructions to make the cake at a later date. This makes quite a bit- I had to really pack the mix down in the jar & it filled it to the very top.
