Add this homemade funfetti cake mix to your recipe box because who doesn’t love funfetti cake when celebrating a birthday, favorite holiday or just because it’s Friday and you’re in the mood for a homemade funfetti cake?

Funfetti (the word just doesn’t get old) cake is a vanilla white cake that is studded with colorful sprinkles. The best sprinkles to use for this is the sprinkles that resemble small, thin strands also known as “jimmies”. The more colors the better! And to keep things festive around the holidays, you can use red and green for Christmas. Red, white and blue for the Fourth of July and orange and black for Halloween. You get the idea.

The mix for the cake is this: 3 cups unbleached cake flour, 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder, 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar, and 1-1/2 sticks (or 3/4 cup) of unsalted butter.

Start by whisking the 3 cups of cake flour with 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder and 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, until the dry ingredients are light and airy.

Next add in the sugar and whisk to incorporate.

Once your dry ingredients are thoroughly combined, drop in 1-1/2 sticks (or 3/4 cup) of softened unsalted butter. Use a pastry cutter (or a couple of knives or a fork will do) and cut the butter into the flour. Keep going until the butter is in very small pieces, nearly undetectable in the dry ingredients.

Use it immediately to make a homemade funfetti cake or cover tightly and refrigerate until the mood for cake strikes!

As a side note, you’ll want to keep the sprinkles out of the mix until you’re ready to make the cake. I do this because you don’t want to take the chance of the color leaking from the sprinkles as you mix in the wet ingredients. I know, I know. Yes this really is homemade funfetti cake mix without the sprinkles mixed in. I promise. Click here to turn this cake mix into a deliciously moist homemade funfetti cake!

    Hi Laurie! I would never have thought to make a homemade mix for a cake! I was wondering how long will this last in the fridge since it has butter in it? Do you think it will keep for a while, or do I need to use it pretty quickly?
    Thanks!!

      Hi Jane! I apologize, somehow I missed your question! I think this mix would last at least a week or two in the fridge. Possibly longer, but I haven’t tested that theory yet. I hope this helps 🙂
