For a while there, my family was calling me the "Mix queen" because everything I made came from a homemade mix. I bought the Make-a-Mix cookbook (around 13?) years ago, and it changed my life. Suddenly everything that was homemade had a convenience factor.
And it wasn't long before I discovered the beauty of designing my own mixes. In fact, some times I even sell them. But usually we just give them away or eat them!
So, here's a Biscuit Mix that I made up
4 cups of whole wheat flour
2 cups of white flour
1 cup of coconut oil (in its solid form)
Cut the flours and oils together until they crumble. You can use a pastry cutter, your hands or a food processor.
1 1/2 t. baking soda
3T. baking powder
1 cup of buttermilk powder*
Mix all of these ingredients together and store in an airtight container for up to 3-4 months.
When you want to make biscuits:
Take 2 cups of biscuit mix and stir in (1/3 cup* of water or more if needed). Roll out the biscuit dough on a floured surface (about 1/2- 3/4" thick) and cut into circles or cool shapes.
Bake at: 400* for 10-12 minutes.
Notes: * 1/3 cup of water: We guessed on this. If it is too soggy, add more mix.
* buttermilk powder can be found in the grocery store.
Happy winter baking!
