5. TO USE: Pour 1 package of mix into a mixing bowl; add 3/4 cup milk and 1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract.

6. Using either an electric or manual rotary beater, beat at slow to medium speed for two minutes (by hand, beat 3 minutes averaging 135 strokes per minute).

8. Add 2 eggs; beat 1 minute more (2 minutes by hand).

9. Grease and dust with flour your choice of pan(s); spread batter evenly in pans.

12. WHITE CAKE: Follow the same directions as for Yellow Cake replacing the 2 eggs with 3 unbeaten egg whites.

13. Use an electric mixer for beating. SPICE CAKE: Add to the package of Yellow Cake Mix: 1/4 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves, and a pinch of ground allspice.

14. Follow Yellow Cake directions. EXTRACT FLAVORED CAKES: Replace the vanilla in either the Yellow or White Cake recipes with 2 to 3 teaspoons of the extract of your choice.

15. You may want to add a few drops of food coloring for the flavors like lemon, orange, or cherry, etc.

16. FRESH ORANGE CAKE: Pour 1 package of Yellow Cake Mix into a bowl; add 2 tablespoons sugar and 1 tablespoon freshly grated orange peel (1 teaspoon dried).

17. Squeeze the juice from 1 large orange and add to it enough water to measure 1 cup.

20. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
