I’m the first to admit, there are times (perhaps more often than not) that I am late to the show. Seriously. Maybe it’s because I was born a week and a half late, I don’t know, but being late and a procrastinator are two of many things that make me who I am. Like any good peruser of food blogs and recipe searches, I learned about making your own baking mix years ago, and true to form, just made it and used it for the very first time on Sunday. It could not have been easier.
- 6 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tbsp. baking powder
- 1 tbsp. salt
- 1 cup vegetable shortening
Sift flour, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
Store in refrigerator in an air tight container up to 4 months.
Note: I don’t use baking mix a lot so I halved the recipe.
