Dry Cake Mix Recipe?
« on: March 18, 2021, 02:56:57 am »
Hi all, I haven't been on here for ages, but I do come and look up recipes quite often.
I'm after a DIY Cake Mix that I'm sure I found here, though a search hasn't turned it up. These are often used when camping to replace bought packet cake mixes.

I have a picture of a bag of it with the ingredients needed to complete it - circa 2015!. The ingredients to add were: 2 eggs, 120g water and vanilla.
So, the butter was crumbled into flour, milk powder, baking powder, I'm just not sure of quantities.

Can anyone help? If not, I'll have a play around myself. Since it had butter in, it must have to be kept in the fridge. I've seen a lot where you add oil with the eggs and water, so that would probably be better.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

MJ I used to take a dry mix away with us when we. Went to Monkey Mia. I canít remember f I used to rub the butter in or if I added it later. I know I used to put it in a plastic bag with writing on the outside what was needed. I used to take vanilla and chocolate.
