If you use a lot of Bisquick or other baking mix for your cooking and baking and pancake making, you'll appreciate this tip. I wish I could claim credit for this, but my wife actually found it in a 1950s cook book. Mom really did know best. This will save you a lot of money over the cost of buying the store-bought mix:


10 cups of flour
1/3 cup baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
4 tsp salt
2 cups of shortening (crisco or generic)

You'll need a large airtight container to store the baking mix. It will keep for up to six weeks on the shelf, or up to six months if you freeze it. Just take what you need out of the freezer and thaw before using.

In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. With a pastry blender (or wire whisk or fork) cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. If you're using a wire whisk or a fork, make sure you mix it well. Mix it until it looks like...well, Bisquick.

That's it!
