Baking Mix

For years I always made a biscuit mix in which I mixed the dry ingredients and then added the milk and butter.  For some reason I found that to be too much work.  I also kept coming across recipes that call for Bisquick...  I hate using store bought junk like that, so when I came across this baking mix recipe I was a happy camper!

Picture by ME.

Baking Mix
(from Kitchen Simplicity)
  • 5 cups flour (I use 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 white)
  • 1/4 cup baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup butter
*Mix all ingredients & store in freezer. (I freeze my butter and shred it on my grater to mix it in easily.)
*To make biscuits add 1/3 cup milk to 1 cup of baking mix.  Bake at 450 on an ungreased cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes.  (makes 6 biscuits)

*(You can also make pancakes with this mix - use 2 cups mix with 2 cups milk and 2 eggs.  Cook as usual.)  I haven't tried this yet but will soon.

I make the mix and store it in a bag in the freezer.  When I need it, it is handy just to scoop out what I need and save the rest for next time.  I've used this to make biscuits numerous time and love it.  I find I need to add extra milk sometimes.  I have also used it to make cheddar garlic biscuits by adding shredded cheddar and garlic powder.  It makes a great chicken pot pie topping too.
