RECIPE: Basic Baking Mix
To those who have attended my scones classes, here is the Basic Baking Mix we used as the base to create them. Please note this is a large quantity of baking mix, but it is scalable.
For use with biscuits, scones, waffles, pancakes, coffeecakes and more, here’s to happy baking!
Basic Baking Mix Recipe
YIELD: Approximately 12 CupsINGREDIENTS
10 Cups All-purpose flour
1-1/3 Cup Nonfat dry milk
4 Tbs. Baking powder
4 tsp. Salt
2 Cups Shortening/Lard* (unsalted butter may be used if not being stored)
*Lard is soy-free
In a very large bowl, combine flour, dry milk, baking powder, and salt. Stir well. With a pastry cutter (or 2 knives), cut in shortening/lard until coarse crumbs form.
Store in an airtight container in cool, dry place for up to 3 months. Stir before measuring as some settling may have occurred.
Use as directed in White Rose Manor recipes like our French Crumb Cake.
