    Thumbs up Mix in the pan Snack Cake Mix master mix & variations

    Tried & true! So nice to have the mix on hand to whip up a quick snack cake.

    3 cups flour
    2 cups sugar
    1 1/2 Tbsp baking powder
    1 tsp salt
    3/4 cup solid vegetable shortening OR 1 1/2 sticks cold butter or margarine, in Tbsp-size pieces

    Put flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in food processor or large bowl. Process or stir until blended. Add shortening and pulse or cut in with a pastry blender until mixture resembles cornmeal. Store mix made with shortening at room temperature; with butter or margarine in the refrigerator.

    Makes 6 to 7 cups. Each cake uses 2 cups. Leftover mix can be used as a crumb topping: Mix with 1/4 cup chopped nuts and sprinkle on Everyday Cake or Orange Cake before baking.

    1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Have ready an 8- or 9-in. square baking pan.
    2. Stir Basic Mix with a fork to remove any clumps before measuring. Put in baking pan. Stir in dry ingredients, then wet ones until well blended.
    3. Bake 25 to 30 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.
    4. Cool; cut in 9 squares

    (serve plain or topped with fruit, whipped cream or frosting)
    2 cups Basic Mix
    1/2 cup lowfat or whole milk
    1 large egg, sligtly beaten
    1 tsp vanilla extract

    Proceed as directed above

    (dust with confectioners' sugar, or top with 1 cup semisweet chocolate mini-chips when cake comes from oven. Return to oven 2 minutes until chips are shiny. Spread over cake)

    2 cups Basic Mix
    1/4 cup each unsweetened cocoa powder and semi-sweet chocolate mini-chips
    3/4 cup ice water
    1 large egg, slightly beaten
    1 tsp vanilla extract

    Proceed as directed above

    (for a glaze topping, stir 2 Tbsp orange juice into 1 cup confectioners' sugar until smooth. Spread on top of warm cake)
    2 cups Basic Mix
    1 large egg, slightly beaten
    1 Tbsp grated orange peel stired into 1/4 cup orange juice
    1/4 cup water

    Proceed as directed above

    (good with whipped topping)

    2 cups Basic Mix
    1 tsp each ground cinnamon and ginger
    1/4 tsp each baking soda, ground cloves and nutmeg
    2 large eggs, slightly beaten
    1/4 cup each dark molasses and milk

    Proceed as directed above
