Wild Moon Cottage is a small working homestead in the pristine Ozark Mountains. We have dairy goats, poultry, organic herb and vegetable gardens, a start of a tiny fruit orchard, several black walnut trees, wild berries and fields of wildcrafting goodness. We raise our own milk, our own eggs, much of our own medicine and food. I do laundry by hand, make my own vinegar, candles, soap, bread, cheese ........ For a living I am an artist and herbalist. My goal for myself and our homestead is to be as self sufficient and self sustaining as possible.

Homemade Baking Mix

This is what I use most of the time ...

Missouri Mix

5 pounds (20 cups) flour (any kind of flour or combination)
3/4 c baking powder
2 T salt
2 1/2 c nonfat dry milk powder
3 3/4 c shortening

Makes 27 cups of mix

Store in an airtight container, stays good for several months. Stays good even longer in the refrigerator and can also be frozen.

I use a similar recipe -- use it to make pancakes, biscuits, waffles, pizza crust, etc... Big time saver. Thanks for sharing this, Juli. I'll have to try it. :)
