All-Purpose Baking MixDecember 12, 2011
Recipe of the Week
We’ve mentioned before on this blog that we like to make our own cream soups and bases from scratch when we have the time. Well, we just found another from-scratch recipe that we like to use and we want to share it with you!Some of the recipes in the Fix-It and Forget-It cookbooks—like Just Peachy—call for all-purpose baking mix. This baking mix is not as mysterious as it sounds. It’s simply a basic biscuit mix.We decided to do a little experimenting. So we made our own from-scratch biscuit mix and tested it out just to make sure it would work. It did! And it was so easy to make, that now we’re hooked on this homemade baking mix recipe.We think we’ll make a large batch next time and store it in an airtight container. Then we’ll have it on hand whenever we make a recipe that calls for the all-purpose baking mix.
