Old Favorites For Baking: All Purpose Baking Mix

All purpose baking mix

A box of Jiffy Baking Mix is truly a kitchen staple.  Having a box on hand allows you all the necessary ingredients for making biscuits, muffins, pancakes and a whole host of other recipes on a whim.  If you are gluten intolerant you don’t have that luxury.  This mix is our solution to that conundrum.

Basic Biscuits  (based on a 1933 Recipe)
Sift the 1 cup of this mix and combine with 

Cut in 2 tbsp butter or shortening
Add 1/3 + 1tbsp cup milk gradually, stirring until soft dough is formed
  • Turn out on slightly floured board and lightly "knead" for 30 seconds, enough to shape. Roll 1/2 inch thick and cut with 2 inch floured biscuit cutter. Bake on ungreased sheet in a 400 degree oven for 12-15 minutes. Makes 12 biscuits. You can also make tiny tea biscuits that are only 1 1/2 inches wide with a small cutter or glass bottom. These are great served with tea, jam or honey. Makes 12.
