CAKE MIXES TRIVIA

The first cake mixes: The most oft quoted date is 1929 usually mentioning Duncan Hines cake mixes. There were problems with it being lumpy though. I am not sure if this date is correct or not.   Jiffy and Bisquick were introduced in 1930, but there were other biscuit and pancake mixes going back to the late 19th century. General Mills and Pillsbury did not introduce their cake mixes until 1949.
