Lynn demonstrates how to make your own Homemade Spice Cake Mix. You can use this like you use a boxed cake mix from the grocery store. Adapted from iambaker.net.
Place all dry ingredients in a bowl and sift to combine. Make sure to get rid of all lumps. Pour all dry ingredients into a Mason jar or air-tight container. Store in pantry until ready to make cake.
When ready to make a cake or cupcakes:
Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour 2-8” round cake pans and set aside.
In a medium bowl, add the eggs, milk and vanilla and beat together with a whisk. Set aside.
Using a stand mixer or a hand mixer, cream butter until light and fluffy.
With the mixture on low, start by alternating the dry mixture and the egg mixture.
Pour 1/3 of the dry mixture into the creamed butter, then add ½ of the egg mixture. Continue, alternating until all ingredients are used. Mix by hand to incorporate any ingredients that may not have been mixed in.
Divide mixture between the 2 prepared pans and bake for about 18 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean.
If using a 9x13” pan, bake about 30 minutes.
For cupcakes, bake about 15 minutes. This batter will make 14-16 cupcakes.
