This is a dry mix you make ahead of time, and stir in the wet ingredients when you make it. I haven't tried it yet, but it sounds good! I found it at the excellent site "Tammy's Recipes".

Chocolate Cake Dry Mix

2 cups flour
1 3/4 cup sugar
1 cup cocoa
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
4 Tbsp vegetable shortening, cut into above ingredients well

Store in a glass jar tightly covered.

To prepare cake:
Combine dry mix with 1 1/3 cup water
1/2 cup vegetable oil or butter
3 large eggs

Mix on low speed for 2 minutes. Pour into 2 greased and floured 9" pans (or a 9x13 or cupcake pans) and bake at 350 for 30-33 minutes (or 35-38 mins for 9x13, 19-22 minutes for cupcakes)
