Homemade Baking Mix

I used to use a lot of Bisquick.  Until I realized that it contained trans fats.  And was ridiculously easy to make, not to mention much cheaper.  I make a big batch of it about every other month or so.  It mixes up in no time at all.  If you are just beginning to phase out packaged products, this is a great place to start.

Homemade Baking Mix

6 cups flour
3 Tbl baking powder
3 Tbl sugar
1 Tbl salt
1 c shortening, butter, or shortening substitute, cut in small pieces

Place the first 4 ingredients in a food processor and pulse to mix.  Add in the shortening and pulse until it looks like cornmeal.  Store in an air-tight container... if you use shortening or shelf-stable substitute, in the cupboard is fine.  If you use butter or a substitute that requires refrigeration, keep in in the fridge.

Stay tuned for some great recipes using this Baking Mix!
