Baking Mix


I don't know about you guys, but we are constantly looking for biscuits to add with dinner or are in the mood for pancakes or waffles. On nights that we just don't feel like doing anything crazy for dinner we always revert back to pancakes. So I thought i'd share my baking mix with you. Perfect for the above mentioned foods.
Baking Mix
  • 4 1/4 C all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 3/4 C dry nonfat dry milk (or you could use buttermilk powder)
  • 1 C plus 2 tbsp shortening
Combine everything but the shortening and mix well with a whisk. Use a pastry blender or a heavy duty mixing bowl to cut in the shortening until it is mixed in thoroughly.
Store in an airtight container. Use like any store bought baking mix to make pancakes, waffles, and biscuits.


Pancakes
  • 2 C baking mix
  • 1 2/3 C milk (or more if you like thin pancakes)
  • 1 egg
mix and make pancakes to your liking

Waffles
  • 2 C baking mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1 2/3 C milk
  • 2 tbsp oil
mix and make waffles to your liking

Biscuits
  • 2 C baking mix
  • 2/3 C milk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. COmbine mix and milk until the dough is stiff and sticky. Knead it on a floured surface 8-10 times. Roll out until it is 1/12 inch thick and cut into circles. If you don't have biscuit cutters, use a glass or a can. Bake 10-15 minutes. Makes about 12 2in. biscuits.

Awesome! And doing your own mix is so much cheaper than buying commercial mixes, not to mention less full of preservatives and artificial flavorings. Plus you can still say you made your foods from scratch!
