Homemade Yellow Cake Mix Recipe

homemade cake mix

Homemade yellow cake mix recipe; DIY cake mix is easy to make at home especially if you have a food processor or mixie.  Making your own cake mix saves a lot of money and if you have some in the freezer or fridge, baking cakes can never be more easy.

Box cake mix (store bought cake mix) comes with extra junks, preservatives, high fructose corn syrup and there must be many more stuffs in it. Need any excuse to ditch the store bought cake mix and try my recipe for a change.

This recipe has butter and like always, I used good old Amul salted butter and the butter is the reason why this mix should be stored in the fridge and not in pantry. You can also add in milk powder and skip the addition of milk when making the cake, but milk powder is not always available in my kitchen and I am sure its the same with you too ...but then whole milk is always available and mixing them in the batter is easy and less expensive.

What I love about this homemade yellow cake is the crust!! it has a better-than-bakery-texture and style to it, so very homemade and yum!

This cake mix can be stored in the fridge for 3 week or even more in the freezer, but make sure you bring it to room temp when you plan to bake a cake. All you have to do is dunk it into a bowl and add in the wet ingredients, so easy!

Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style.
