So, you need to make some buttery yellow cake, but you don't have any mix in the pantry. Or perhaps you love the moist and delicious cake made from a box, but aren't a big fan of all the polysyllabic preservatives and thickeners that come along for the ride. Here is the TSR way to make homemade yellow cake mix from scratch using basic baking ingredients. You can store the cloned dry mix in a sealed container for several weeks in a cabinet until you need it. Then, when you're ready to make the cake, simply add water, oil, and eggs to the mix in the exact measurements required by the original, then pour the batter into a pan and pop it in the oven. Done.

I've made this a few times, and kept hoping it was something I was doing wrong, but all 3 times were disappointing. The cake was eggy and heavy. Although the taste wasn't terrible, nobody wanted to eat any of the cake and it got tossed.

I made this and ended up having to throw the cake in the trash.... I am a pretty decent baker too.
