There are lots of instant cake mixes on the market, but what if you have the ingredients to toss one of these together and don't feel like going to the market.
It's fine if it is in walking distance, but starting the car and all that carbon is not really a good way to go. I'd say in that case if you must have the boxed mix, wait until your next trip to the market.
In this case, the proof is in the ingredients and adding them in the correct order.
The cake that I made from this recipe was made by adding the ingredients in an strange order. It was the third thing I made in the kitchen having started the day with home made yogurt from powdered milk, and Barbecue Pork Tenderloin that I enjoyed for lunch.
For the Mix, you add the dry ingredients first. Then when you are ready to bake, grease your pans and add the wet ingredients.
For the Cherry Dump Cake you will need to jump lower in the recipe.
2 1/2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
2 1/4 Cups Sugar (I used white/table/granulated sugar)
1/3 Cups of Instant nonfat dry milk powder
2 Teaspoons Baking POWDER
1 Teaspoon Fine Salt (I used common table salt)
Wet Ingredients for when you are ready to bake:
3/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
3 Large Eggs at Room Temperature
1 Tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
Grease your baking pans with Cooking Spray or Oil
Mix the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Add the 3 large eggs and the Tablespoon of Vanilla Extract
Add any other ingredients you would to a box of yellow cake mix
Bake at 350F/Medium oven until Toothpick comes out clean
Cherry Dump Cake:
Add a can of cherry pie filling to greased crock pot
Add your boxed cake mix recipe at the end of the process above to a mixing bowl.
Add 1/2 cup of melted butter (2 sticks) to the boxed cake mix and stir until even.
Add the cake mix to the top of the cherry pie in the crock pot.
Cook on low for 4 hours or high for 2 hours in crock pot.
My picture above was 4 hours on High. Who knew?
