Basic Cake Mix

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 60
Categories: Cakes / Desserts / Mix Recipes

3  cups  Flour, sifted
2 1/2  cups  Sugar
1/2  teaspoon  Baking powder
1  cup  Butter
1/2  cup  Vegetable shortening

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. SOURCE: Cheaper and Better, by Nancy Birnes Typed for you by Nancy Coleman
