Basic Cake Mix
Sift flour, sugar, and baking powder together. Cut in butter and shortening with a pastry blender or two knives. You can also use your food processor for this step.
Store mix in a covered container in the refrigerator and use within the month.
Note: Store mix in the refrigerator rather than on the pantry shelf because it contains butter. It will still be as convenient as a packaged mix, however, as the recipe for Quick Pound Cake shows.
