Cake flour is also bleached which is banned in most European countries, so cake flour wouldnt work with a British or Swedish cake recipe, it would give a different result.

That was exactly what I was thinking. Back in the 80s I occasionally bought "snackin' cakes". They were a mix that only needed water and they were delicious unfrosted. You mixed them in the baking pan. The convenience was worth it.

I just use soft, organic, whole wheat flour instead of cake flour. The only cakes I use it for are angel food cake and sponge cake. I mostly use it for pie crusts.

I was once in a hurry and tried this cupcake "recipe" - delicious!

Vanilla box cake - best quality at store
Mince meat pie filling in glass jar - best quality at store

Omit 1 Tablespoon liquid from cake mix directions. Otherwise, follow all directions on box to make batter.

Pour batter into paper-lined cupcake tin. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of mincemeat from glass jar to each cupcake.

Bake as instructed on cake mix box.

Yum!

ps - I love cardamom so I added 1 teaspoon ground to the dry cake mix.
