Homemade chocolate cake mix, my life is now complete.
There used to be a time in my life where I actually thought the only way to make a cake was by opening a box. When I became obsessed with making my cakes from scratch, I didn’t know homemade cake mixes existed. It wasn’t until my sister Julie passed on her recipe for yellow cake mix that I decided to give this chocolate version a go. Winner-winner chocolate cake for dinner. 😉
So long boxed mixes that contain chemicals and un-natural ingredients. There’s a new cake mix in town and it’s EASY!
Last year when I shared my homemade yellow cake mix it was a hit! I had no idea so many people were looking for an alternative to buying boxed mixes. ALSO it’s pretty much the best yellow cake around, in my opinion.
And NOW we have a chocolate version! Same easy ingredients… just chocolate.
You will need thess 6 ingredients:
- unbleached all purpose flour
- natural cocoa powder
- baking powder
- kosher salt
- unsalted butter
Measure out 2 cups of flour, 1-1/2 cups sugar, 1/2 cup cocoa powder, 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon kosher salt and place them into a large bowl. Be sure to style it super cool sand art form because that is a crucial step when making this cake mix.
Grab a whisk and combine.
Almost done. Seriously, do you see how easy this is?
Drop in 4 tablespoons of softened unsalted butter and use a pastry cutter to blend it into the dry ingredients.
Ta-DAH! Since this has butter in it, simply store in a glass or plastic container with a tight fitting lid in your refrigerator. Then you have homemade chocolate cake mix at your fingertips!
If you want to give homemade chocolate cake mix as a gift, omit the butter and store all the dry ingredients in a glass jar with a tight fitting lid. Write out the remaining ingredients (include the butter!) and then recipe instructions (start by creaming the butter, vanilla, eggs and adding the dry ingredients, water, oil etc.) out onto a note card and tie it around the jar with string.
