Boxed Cake Mix? No Way! How to Make an Easy DIY Yellow Cake Mix

My easy homemade yellow cake mix doesn't contain shelf stabilizers. Perfection!

You'll need:

Combine all ingredients. It makes 2 1/2 cups of cake mix that will yield one 13x9-inch cake. Store it in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one month.

Here’s how to make the cake:

  1. In a medium-sized bowl combine the cake mix and 3 organic eggs, 1/2 teaspoon organic vanilla extract, 1/3 cup healthy cooking oil and 1 cup filtered water. Using an electric mixer beat about 2 minutes on medium speed. Pour batter into a greased and lightly floured cake pan. 
  2. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for 25-30 minutes, or until center springs back to the touch. Cool. 
  3. Frost! (Get my chocolate ganache recipe!)

We bake like most families do arts & crafts Chef Gigi Gaggero! I'm so adding this to the rotation. Usually it's boxed cake mix so I'm thrilled to be able to have a healthier alternative!

Is it possible to substitute maple syrup for the sugar and cut the volume by half? Or do you need the sweetener to be a dry sweetener?
