Convenient Baking Mixes

Since these recipes contain only dry ingredients, they last longer than the kind that have butter or shortening added in

  • Store it in your cupboard, and use whenever you want to whip up a quick batch of baked goods
  • Baking Mix #1 is for biscuits, pancakes and waffles, which require very little sugar
  • Baking Mix #2 is for cookies and quick breads, which require more sugar
  • Baking Mix #3 is for oatmeal cookies, and has oatmeal and light brown sugar in it
  • Cornbread Baking Mix is the fourth recipe, and it can be used for cornbread, corn muffins, and many other recipes that contain cornmeal
  • Store it in an empty jar or pretty container, embellish as desired, and give to someone as a gift, complete with a recipe card
  • Double the recipe if 6 cups is not quite enough

Variations for Baking Mixes

Substitutions or additions can be made to these recipes:

      Thanks for the tips, Kathryn! I'll share with my wife and we'll both use this information.

      C E Clark 4 years ago from North Texas

      Just what I've always wanted! With no ingredients that will spoil quickly or easily and no refrigeration required. This is great! I'm so glad you decided to share this information and I'm looking forward to the recipes that you make for these basics. Voted up, useful, and will share! Oh, and I gave you 5 stars, too!

      You're welcome, Bill. Thanks for reading and commenting. I was shocked to already have action on this page! It took longer to construct this page than I thought. It started out as a plan to have one Bisquick-like recipe, and then I decided I wanted to do another type, until I had 4 versions! It's hard for me to stop sometimes, because I want to get it right. I'm glad you find this useful!

      Kathryn 4 years ago from Manchester, Connecticut

      Au fait, you were the one that originally gave me the idea, and once I thought of it, I had to create it! I put a lot of work into getting the ingredients sorted out. Four versions should cover a great variety of recipes! I will post the first related hub soon, so this one will be more useful.

      I made baking mix #1 last night, and made some of my pumpkin pancakes with 2 cups of it this morning. Now I have enough of my mix left for 2-3 more recipes!

      Thanks for reading and commenting, and I appreciate the feedback, the share, and the stars!

      Kathryn 4 years ago from Manchester, Connecticut

      Thank you for reading and providing feedback, Rebecca. I'm glad you find them helpful. I think it is incredibly convenient to make a large batch of baking mix, so that when it comes time to bake, it takes less time. It is also cheaper to make than to buy pre-made.

      Hi Kathryn,

      What an excellent hub to do! So useful, i can't wait for recipes now to go with them. How cool to be able to pre mix it and have a great shelf life for them. Really clever idea and having 4 different ones covers so many types of foods. Voted way up, Useful, Interesting, Shared and Pinned as it is sooooooooo cool!!

      Kathryn,

      What a clever idea! Thanks for developing these mixes. I'm a vegetarian, and my boyfriend is a vegan. It's difficult for us to find mixes which don't have milk powder or dried eggs in them.

    • Kathryn Stratford profile image
      Author

      Kathryn 4 years ago from Manchester, Connecticut

      Thank you, Suzie.

      I'm glad you like it! I was excited when I thought of creating this, because I used to have a recipe book that had tons of mixes, and I made my own often. It cuts prep time when I bake.

      Most of the recipes I see now have the butter or shortening in it, which decreases the shelf life. I like being able to store mixes for longer than a few days.

      I appreciate your feedback, and that you're sharing it.

      Daisy,

      That is a good point. I hadn't thought about how vegans would have trouble with some of the other mixes out there. I'm glad you find them helpful.

      Some of the recipes I have in my next hub (using these mixes) have eggs and milk in them, but you have inspired me to put some research into some recipes for vegans. I will do my best to get it out in the next week or two. I think it would be something different and useful. I like expanding my knowledge on baking, and using different variations, so this will be a fun project.

      Thank you for reading and responding! I always appreciate feedback.

      Victoria, you're welcome, and thank you for reading and commenting. It is definitely cheaper, because the ingredients they consist of don't cost much to buy. And making it yourself ensures that there aren't extra, unwanted ingredients in it.

      Torrilynn,

      I am glad I changed your perspective! I like making my own mixes. Sometimes if I make a particular baked good often enough, I will just look at the dry ingredients in the recipe, and multiply it all by three. Mix them up and store them, and when the time comes to prepare it, all that needs to be done is add the wet ingredients to complete it! Very simple.

      Thank you for reading and commenting. I appreciate it!

      Kathryn 4 years ago from Manchester, Connecticut

      Shin, Thank you, I'm glad you like them. I posted my first round of recipes (using mix #1) late last night. If you like pancakes, waffles and biscuits, you'll like it. In a while I will post some on cornbread muffins and bread. I also have some tasty cookies and quick breads to post at some point, I just have to make sure I get the recipes right first.

I started working on one over the weekend, but I decided to finish these 2 baking hubs before I started my next one. It is a little more involved, but I have already done a lot of the research and framework for it.

      I noticed you've commented on all of them! I'll have to give you more to read!

      Spongyollama, you're welcome. I'm glad that this will be useful to you. I like shortcuts like this. Especially when I have a lot to bake, or else when I am tired and don't feel like doing much. I oftentimes make sure I have this for pancakes, so when I want to make them on a weekend morning, it only take minutes to get them on the skillet.

      Thanks for reading and commenting, and happy baking!

      Hi Kathryn,

      I have only purchased the ready made packages a few times but for those who purchase them frequently, this is wonderful information to know. It will undoubtedly save people a lot of money and also keep all of that packaging out of recycling centers or landfills. Voted up, useful and interesting. Will also share + gave this 5 stars.

    • Kathryn Stratford profile image

      Kathryn 4 years ago from Manchester, Connecticut

      Thank you, Peggy, I appreciate your kind comment, and your feedback. I agree that it would be much less wasteful to make this, rather than buying the mixes, and I hope that many people can use this. I usually bake from scratch, but once in a while I make up the dry mix to save a few minutes later on. It is convenient.

    • moonlake profile image

      Moonlake, You're welcome. I think anyone looking for ways to make a mix from scratch might also find your baking powder hub very handy. I know I will make use of it!

      They would make good gifts. I made a pancake mix for my parents one time, enclosed the directions, as well as fruit and maple syrup to use as toppings, and they loved it!

      Thank you for reading and commenting on my hub, Moonlake, and have a wonderful day!

      Good morning, Kathryn. This brought back memories as my kids and use to make baking mix jars as gifts at Christmas time. We would decorate the lids with some Christmas or crocheted piece and tie on with a fancy ribbon. Homemade gifts like this are so much fun to give out! :-)

      Kathryn 4 years ago from Manchester, Connecticut

      Abby, I love making gifts in a jar! It is a creative gift that most people really appreciate, and it is much sweeter and cost effective than buying a mix from the holiday section. It's a great thing for kids to put together, too. I was interested in baking ever since I was 11, and my mom let me experiment in the kitchen.

      Ah, Kathryn, AnniePie just the other day was lamenting the loss of her DIY Bisquick recipe! Quite timely, not to mention comprehensive, hub. Thanks!

      I do have a bone to pick, however. Please, please, please for the sake of our environment limit or totally eliminate use of plastic storage bags. Besides, glass and/or metal canisters are actually cheaper over the long haul since they are infinitely reusable.

      Jim,

      Good, I am glad to have a recipe that is useful.

      That is an extremely good point, Jim. I myself reuse a jar for this mix, I just added the suggestion of plastic bags for convenience' sake. But in this case convenience comes at a high cost. Thank you for your input. I will edit this hub to note the comment you made, since it is very important.

      Thank you for reading and responding to my article.

      Architecture, that would be interesting. I will put that on my list of ideas, although it may be a while before I get to it. Thanks for the idea.

      I will try to keep feeding you new material to read! Thanks again!

      I need to check your page, and see if I missed anything. There have been a few days that I have been semi-busy part of the day.

      Thanks for taking my comment on the use of plastic storage bags in the spirit that it was given. I did not expect that you would edit your hub, but I am delighted that you did. Given the culture in which most of us in America live, it is way too easy to take the convenient way rather than a more environmentally healthy or sustainable way.

      Kathryn 4 years ago from Manchester, Connecticut

      Yeah, it's kind of funny how it is possible to leave out baking soda in some of the mixes. When I bake from scratch, I usually use both, but it is not always necessary for every recipe.

      Thanks for reading and commenting, CharronsChatter. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

    • Kathryn Stratford profile image
      Author

      Kathryn 4 years ago from Manchester, Connecticut

      Dolores,

      Mix #2 would work for many muffins, because most muffins are like little "quick breads". I will put muffins on my list of recipes to post soon! That could be a fun hub to create.

      I am also glad I looked at this article again, because I noticed a mistake. I forgot to add oatmeal in the ingredient list of the mix associated with oatmeal cookies! So I did a few edits on the hub.

      I have already done one recipe hub on baking mix #1, the one like Bisquick, and also one on the corn bread mix. I also posted a recipe for a variety of oatmeal cookie, which has its own customized mix recipes in it. I have the links to the first two right below their respective mix recipes, and the oatmeal cookie link at the bottom of the article.

      Thank you so much for reading and commenting, and I hope to get the muffin article up soon. Have a good week!

      What a great idea to make these mixes in advance. It's a good way to avoid all the added preservatives that are in the commercial mixes. Thanks for sharing this baking secret.
