Homemade Baking Mix
Hey all! Today I am going to share one of my favorite things ever!
This is a Homemade Baking Mix; think Bisquick. I use this to make pancakes, waffles, biscuits and chicken pot pie topping. There are also recipes for cake, cookies, rolls and many more items that you can use it to make. I love this because it is healthier then those boxed versions, there are only a few ingredients, and it tastes great!
This recipe was in my husbands family. I don’t know exactly where it came from but it was given to me in a homemade recipe binder for Christmas one year. I don’t know why that name was picked I just use it!
If it seems like a lot to make the first time then you can split the recipe in half and try it first. I make it in the large batches and store it in this type of container in the refrigerator.
Missouri Mix (large batch, although you can halve it)
9 cups flour
1/3 cup baking powder (half is 2 1/2 Tbls)
4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups butter
Mix dry ingredients together in a bowl and then cut the butter into it with a pastry cutter or butter knives or forks etc. You can keep this out if it is cool where it is stored, I have done that, but I prefer to keep it in the refrigerator since it has butter in it.
We make biscuits in the morning to go with eggs by adding milk to get the right consistency, and dropping them on a flat griddle pan. You can do the same thing to make waffles or pancakes. I have recipes that call for baking mix to go on the top of pot pie mixtures etc. It’s very versatile.
You can choose the type of flour that you use as well. I generally use Prairie Gold white wheat flour but they all work. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do! If you have questions please leave a comment and I’ll be sure to answer! Happy Cooking!
