    filed under: Cakes on February 27, 2014

    Did you know I bake lots of cakes?  Like, lots and lots of lots of cakes?  I had a homemade white cake recipe that I love but have been on the search for a good (and it must be GOOD) yellow cake recipe. This Yellow Cake Mix is the perfect way to get rid of box mixes or the perfect gift for a friend!

    Yellow Cake Mix Recipe

    There are TWO reasons that I finally ended up in this yellow cake recipe:

    #1 Its a one-bowl recipe.


    #2 It uses whole eggs, not 8 egg yolks.

    Oh, and one more… it’s the BEST! Tastes amazing.

    (If you want this recipe written out try my Birthday Cake recipe, it is the same delicious yellow cake only written to be made immediately.)

    The recipe is written to be stored. You prepare the dry ingredients, label, and store it in your pantry. When you are ready to bake the yellow cake, you remove from your pantry and add the wet ingredients. It is a great option if you have a few extra minutes the week before a birthday or special occasion! Not only can making your own cake mixes save you time, but they taste amazing and are real, natural ingredients!

    I couldn’t help but pair this yellow cake with a rich chocolate buttercream, as that is my favorite combination.

    If you would like the CUPCAKE version of the best yellow cake, try this recipe for the Perfect Yellow Cupcake.

    If you want to give this as a gift simply print out the ‘wet’ ingredients and the directions and attach to the jar.  Be sure to add some instructions, though.  Something like, “After the cake is cooled call me and I will be right over.”

    homemade yellow cake mix


        • 2 1/4 c all-purpose flour
        • 1 1/2 c granulated sugar
        • 3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
        • 1 tsp. salt
        • 1 1/4 c milk
        • 1/8 c vegetable oil
        • 1 stick butter, softened
        • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
        • 3 large eggs


        1. Measure flour into quart size mason jar.
        2. Add sugar on top, then baking powder, then salt. Place lid on jar. (My ingredients JUST fit)

        When Ready to Prepare Cake Batter

        1. Place softened butter into stand mixer and mix on medium for 1-2 minutes.
        2. Place dry ingredients into stand mixer and combine with butter for 30 seconds.
        3. Add milk, oil, vanilla and eggs and mix on medium-high for one minute.
        4. Pour batter into prepare pans. Bake at 350. For 9-inch pans its 20-25 minutes. For cupcakes start checking around 15 minutes. Cool before frosting.

        Thank you for sharing your recipes. They are all so good.

        When you measure the flour, is it already sifted or do I sift it when adding to the mixing bowl? If i dont own a sifter, what can I use to sift the flour and other dry ingredients?
        What is the difference between all purpose flour and cake flour?Is cake flour already sifted?
