Homemade or Store Bought

While all of the following recipes could easily be made a box of cake mix from the grocery store – we’re bigger fans of making our own homemade white cake mix.

Homemade cake mixes are very easy to make and quite frugal, meaning they can be a scratch cook’s best friend.

A Mix But Still From Scratch

While many boxed cake mix recipes call for other boxed ingredients like instant puddings, a can of soda, or other processed ingredients, we believe that your homemade mix can easily be added to creations free of over-processed ingredients.

The best part is that these recipes can be made from simple ingredients and even feature things like your homemade jams, canned fruits, dried fruits, and more.
