We have posted a few recipes that used "baking mix" as the main ingredient. You can always purchase the ready made mix from the store, but if you want a little bit more control of what your family eating, try making your own! It really is very simple and works great. I store mine in a glass container on the shelf of my cool dark pantry. Since the mix does contain fat, you will not want to make more than you plan to use in a month. Fats tend to turn rancid if stored for a long period of time. Well enough with the chatter, lets bring on the recipe!
LittleSnowflake's Texas Mix (yields 13 cups)
9 Cups all- purpose flour 1/3 Cup baking powder
1 Tbl. salt 2 tsp. cream of tartar
4 Tbl. sugar 1 Cup nofat dry milk
2 Cup shortening
In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt, cream of tartar , sugar, and dry milk. You will want to sift these dry ingredients at least 3 times to ensure everything is mixed together well.
With a pastry knife, cut in the shortening or coconut oil. If you do not have a pastry knife, you can also use two butter knives. Blend the mixture well until it resembles coarse cornmeal.
Your finished! Now store your mix in a sealed container in your pantry. Use this for any recipe that calls for Bisquick : pancakes, waffles, biscuits, or any of the recipes we post here in our blog that call for baking mix.
* To use this mix, simply pile it lightly into a cup and level off with a glat edge.
