This recipe is a little different to your usual dry mix recipes – you keep it in the freezer as you include the fat component in the mixture, which makes it even easier to throw together when you need to make a cake.


Combine …
6 cups of plain flour
4 cups of sugar
1 cup of dry milk powder
2 tablespoons baking powder
3 teaspoons salt
3 teaspoons vanilla essence
2 cups of diced cold butter.

How to use:

Pulse all of this together in a food processor and divide between 2 zip lock bags (do this by scooping a half up into each bag at a time until you’re done).

To make a cake, combine 1 bag of mixture with 2 eggs and 1 ¼ cup of water. Pour into a prepared cake tin and bake at 170 degrees for 20-30 minutes or until it bounces back when pressed gently in the centre.
