I have so many limitations in how much work I can do at one time any more, and I am so poor these days at multi-tasking, I find these home made mixes very helpful. I can make the mixes one day, and put them away. Then I can make the cake at another time with a lot less effort! This is another cake mix I have found to go with my collection of home made basic recipes. Enjoy it!
