Tips

  • Servings are approximate. All depends on what you use it in. The system is limited to 20 servings and you should get many more than that.

 

To make cake:

I think this is loosely based on a recipe from the Tightwad Gazette. I’ve used it for years and the product is surprisingly good. An older friend tasted it and said that she remembered this recipe from when she was a girl. There is something about the vinegar that enhances the flavor. I once used this one with an acquaintance who was very opposed to bulk cooking. This was the recipe that changed her mind. Surprisingly easy, quick and yummy.
