No MSG Baking Mix

In my quest to eliminate MSG and all its derivitives from our diet, I came across a recipe on for BisQwick Baking Mix.  I tried it and with a couple tweaks, I loved it!

  • 8 cups flour
  • 1 +1/4 cups nonfat dry milk powder
  • 1/4 cup baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon table salt (not sea or kosher salt)
  • 2 cups shortning
In the original recipe it says to cut in the shortning until the mixture resembles course cornmeal.  I was being lazy and processed half the recipe at a time in my food processer.  The final mixture looks more like the Bisquick we’re all familiar with.  I did however add in an extra 1/2 cup of flour to the mix as it seemed too dense to me. Store in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.
You can also mix this half and half with whole wheat flour and regular flour if you’d like a more wholesome mix.
When I used this, I used the ratio of 1/3 cup of skim milk (or water) to 2 cups of mix for bisquits. Enjoy!  Kathy  ]]>
