Not sure if that question was clear- I want to use the WASC recipe but I don't use boxed cake mix in anything I bake. Does anyone know the basic ingredient ratio to basically make my own cake mix? Thanks!

Ause any cake recipe you like -- just measure out the dry ingredients --

But I'm asking for an amount- it won't help if my cake recipe isn't the same size as a boxed mix.

Currently many boxed mixes are 15.25 to 16.0 oz or so...


Older boxed mixes were 18 oz...


I believe...

AHave you read the 30 some page thread titled something like "finally a scratch WASC" or something like that? I can't seem to cut and paste right now, sorry. Try that, or if it doesn't work for you, try FromScratch's recipe available via Etsy. If you want to try using your own base recipe to see if it can handle all the add-ins, I would imagine you would use a recipe that had the same yield a box does. I have not seen a box in while, what is it, 2-9, 1-9x13, or 24 cc?
