What you need:

white cake mix


  • 2 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 c. super fine sugar (just pulse granulated sugar in a food processor until powdery)
  • 2 t. baking powder (store-bought or homemade)
  • 3/4 t. salt


  • measuring cups and spoons
  • sifter
  • food processor (if making the super fine sugar)
  • mixing bowl

Time: 5 minutes

Freezeable: Yes. Or you can keep in in your pantry for about 3 months.

Serves: Makes 30 oz. white cake mix. (Enough for two 8-inch round cakes)

Multiplying the recipe: I would mix batches separately to make sure baking powder and salt get distributed evenly.

Homemade White Cake Mix:

Sift ingredients together in a mixing bowl. Use immediately or store in a mason jar or Ziploc bag. When using in a recipe, be sure to measure for the cake mix box size (15 oz, 18.25 oz, etc.).

To make white cake:

  • 3/4 c. unsalted butter
  • 5 egg whites
  • 1 c. milk
  • 2 1/2 t. vanilla

Cream butter. Add egg whites, one at a time. Add milk and vanilla. Add mix. Fill two 8-inch round cake pans and bake at 350F for 20-30 minutes.
