Taking a huge step toward more domesticated farm living, I have forever given the Bisquik box the boot! I really didn't know making my own baking mix would be so easy. And taste so much better! Thanks to Chickens In The Road, I am fulfilling my homemade biscuit dreams. And all my boys love me for it.
Suzanne's Quick Mix Recipe:
5 cups all purpose flour (can replace part with whole wheat)
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon of salt
Now run on over to get the recipes to make yummy pancakes
and fluffy biscuits
Just this morning, I made the biscuits with half shortening and half butter. I have tried the recipe with just shortening and just butter. If you use just butter they have a wonderful taste but they aren't as fluffy (like the ones in the picture) The combination of fats made the best ones by far.
I plan to try out her muffin recipe and her Grandmother's Bread next.
Who knows, I may be making all my bread soon. Yeah, right!
