There are only a few ingredients you need for this recipe. I would recommend doubling the recipe and making two cake mixes and then you have one ready for when you need it.
List of main ingredients:
Flour – I recommend using all-purpose flour for this recipe. While there is no need to sift the flour, you can if you wish.
Sugar – Use white granulated sugar for the best results. I have not tried this recipe with brown sugar.
Baking Powder – You can use a store brand or a generic brand. I have used both with great results.
