Master Mix- Baking Mix

Homemade Mixes Good Food . . . Faster

Prepare and store your favorite mixes, then when you need a quick solution to surprise company or feeding your hungry family, reach for your mix to make your favorites . . . faster.

This is the Master Mix-Baking Mix Recipe from our Homemade Mixes cookbook, a cookbook inspired by readers of The Keepers at Home Magazine

5-lbs. flour (whole wheat, oat, or all-purpose)

2-1/2 c. dry milk solids (powdered milk flakes)

3/4 Tbsp. salt

2 Tbsp. cream of tarter

1/2 c. sugar

4-2/3 c. (2 lbs.) vegetable shortening

Sift dry ingredients together. Cut in shortening until mix looks like cornmeal. Store in refrigerator if using whole wheat flour or oat flour. Room temperature storage is okay if using all-purpose white flour. Use the Master Mix in your favorite recipes that call for baking mix, or the Homemade Mixes cookbook below has many great recipes.

This is just one of the many easy recipes from the Homemade Mixes Cookbook:

Homemade Biscuits

3 c. Master Mix
