Pancakes and biscuits are delicious breakfast foods, but making them can be time consuming. Prepare a mix in advance and cut your cooking time in half.
Step 1: Mix dry ingredients Mix the flour, sugar, powdered milk, baking powder, and salt together in the large bowl.
Step 2: Mix in shortening Use a fork or pastry blender to mix in the shortening.
TIP: The mixture should have a slightly mealy texture after adding the shortening.
Step 3: Put into a container Put the mixture into a container, put the lid on, and store it in a cool dry place.
Step 4: Use within 2 months Use the baking mix within two months to keep ingredients from spoiling. Use as you would any other baking mix and enjoy a quick hot stack of pancakes or biscuits any time you want.
FACT: In the U.K., Fat Tuesday is known as Pancake Day. People traditionally eat pancakes, toss pancakes, and have pancake races.
