Today’s freezer cooking is Baking Mix.
I have used a few different recipes for baking mix in the past. This time I thought I would give Money Saving Mom’s baking mix recipe a try. I will be using half whole wheat flour that I ground and half unbleached all-purpose flour. Around here we like the mix of the two flours instead of just all whole wheat.
I mixed the flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar, powdered milk and salt. I used the whisk to mix all the ingredients together.
Then I added the shortening and cut it in with my hands. I find using my hands works better than using a fork. I like to cut the shortening in until it looks like fine crumbs.
Then I just package it up in a zipper freezer bag, labeled it and sealed it. I put it into the freezer until I am ready to use it. I use it in place of Bisquick.
Tomorrow will be the start of the lunch freezer cooking. I am looking forward to having some quick lunch items ready in the freezer for when we are having a busy day.
Did you make the baking mix today? What will you be making with it? Do you have a favorite recipe to use baking mix with?
