Homemade Baking Mix

This Homemade Baking Mix recipe comes from King Arthur Flour.  Since I don't use a baking mix very often, I decided to make my own.  This turned out very well and is so easy!  Use it in place of Bisquick or Pioneer Baking Mix.  
Did you know there is Chalk fabric? Yes, there is!  I had some leftover from other projects and cut some out to add to my storage container.

9 cups Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
5 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable shortening

Mix all the dry ingredients together and then cut the shortening in with a pastry blender.  Store the mixture in an air tight container or a large zip lock bag. 

If you substitute whole wheat flour for a portion of the unbleached all-purpose flour, the mixture will need to be refrigerated or frozen  because the whole wheat flour can turn rancid.  

I am sharing this with:

  1. Great idea my friend! Thank you for sharing.

    Wishing you and yours a very blessed and Happy Thanksgiving! I hope this one is better than last year for you. I'm terrible...just want it all to be over. I still work on ways to honor Abby as she loved holidays, especially Christmas. I did buy a darling sweet, pink crown ornament the other day. I'm sure she's pleased! :)


  2. What a wonderful idea, Kitty. I'm like you, I don't really use baking mix much, but do at times.
    As the holidays approach my prayers are with you.
    May you be blessed, Kitty.
    Much love to you, Debbie

  3. There is chalk fabric?? I had no idea and now I am quite curious about it - I will have to look for some the next time I'm at a craft store :)

    I, too, don't use baking mix a lot. In fact, I can't think of the last time I used some. . . Anyway, I will have to make my own. Thanks for sharing, sweet friend. Much love to you!

  4. I LOVE this post! I make my mix just a llittle differently, but it's awesome to be able to make homemade. Love your adorable rooster and especially your chalk fabric. Take good care Hon. XO

  5. I use Bisquick for making biscuits, but that's it.
    Did you feel the earthquake this evening?

  6. I've made this before, it really does work well! I see cherry cheesecake in your 'you might also likes'... Yes, yes I do like:@) Happy Thanksgiving Week Kitty!

  7. Thanks for the recipe Kitty. My daughter just used the last of the Bisquick! I usually make from scratch, but it is handy to have a ready-made mix on hand when things are busy.
    Hope you will be spending the holiday with your family. I will be praying for you.

  8. Thanks for the baking mix recipe Kitty! I just saw Sarah's comment above, we've been out of town without access to internet or the world. Very strange weather and I feel for everyone in the Buffalo area with all that snow. Hope the earthquake didn't rattle you too much :)

  9. This would be hand to have Kitty. Like you, I don't use a baking mix often. Pinned. Thanks for sharing the recipe with SYC.

  10. Congratulations!
    Your recipe is one of the Top Ten Favorites this week at Full Plate Thursday. Hope you are enjoying your week and your new Red Plate.
    Come Back Soon!
