Fall is upon us, and baking season has begun. It's so easy to just grab "ready made mixes" from the store, but did you know that you can make your own "All Purpose Mix"?
I LOVE THIS MIX! I use it all the time ! There are many recipes we will share with you that have this mix used in it. This mix can be the base of biscuits, quiche, pancakes, shortcakes, coffee cake... etc! Instead of buying the popular brand of pancake mix, make this instead. You will be happy with the results (and LESS CHEMICALS and preservatives than bought at the store!!)
All-Purpose Quick Mix
5 lb. bag flour (20 Cups - can also do 1/2 whole wheat or 1/2 other flours preferred)
4 C. nonfat dry milk powder or buttermilk powder
3/4 C. baking powder
2 Tbsp. salt
1 Tbsp. cream of tartar
5 C. vegetable shortening
In a large bowl, sift together the dry ingredients. With Pastry blender (or your hands) cut in shortening until mixture resembles cornmeal in texture. Store in airtight container, pull out when needed for making pancakes, waffles, scones, coffee cake, etc!
~Use 1/2 whole wheat flour, if desired.
~Cut recipe in 1/2 for smaller households.
~For added nutrition can also add some ground flaxseed or variety of other flours
Pancakes and Waffles:
1 c. All Purpose Mix
1/2 c. milk (we like thin pancakes, so sometimes add a little more milk)
Cook and enjoy!
