I have been making a Master Baking Mix for a few years now. I use it just as I would store bought baking mixes, think of the product that starts with a B and ends in quick, it comes in a yellow box with blue letters. Yep, you can totally make that homemade and cut out all the random ingredients! I usually make 4-6 batches each time I make this mix and just store it in my freezer.
Master Baking Mix
2 Cups Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 Cup Butter or Shortening*
Place all ingredients into the bowl of your stand mixer, or food processor, mix (using the whisk attachment if using a mixer).
Continue to mix until the mixture resembles sand, your butter/shortening should be well incorporated.
Place mix into an airtight container, or zip-top bag, and store in your freezer.
*If using butter, it needs to be between firm and soft. I usually heat mine in the microwave for about 8 seconds.
Do you love those store bought master mixes as much as I do? I plan on featuring a few throughout the next month that are easy to make at home! I will also be sharing some GREAT recipes to use all the mixes with!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Be sure to check out our Make Bake Create Party to get some fun fall decorating and recipe ideas!
