3 cups of flour,
2 cups of sugar,
8 tablespoons of cocoa,

2 teaspoons of salt — Place into plastic bags.
To make the cake mix into cake, add
2 cups of cold water,
2 teaspoons of vanilla,
2 tablespoons of vinegar,

I used this recipe to take to a friend who was having a birthday (I was travelling by air – so took this premix in my hand luggage) and finished it off at her house. It was a delicious cake! Thank you xx
Unfortunately the photos aren’t good to share as they include my friend’s children in them – but it was a dense moist choc cake. I agree that it is quite a lot of mix and next time I think I will try and halve it to see how that turns out. Will definitely use it again!
