Quick Bread Mix

After my mom and dad retired from farming and moved to the house where I live now, I used to mix up this recipe for Mom so she would have it to make pancakes, biscuits or muffins.

10 cups flour
1/3 cup baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon salt
2 cups vegetable shortening

Cut the shortening into the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Continue working the mixture with a fork or a pastry cutter until it resembles finely ground meal. Quick Bread Mix can be stored in an airtight container for 6 weeks.

Pancakes
2 cups of Quick Bread Mix
1 1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons sugar
2 eggs
If the pancake batter seems too thin, add a little more Quick Bread Mix. If the mixture seems too thick, add a little more milk.

Drop Biscuits
2 cups of Quick Bread Mix
1/2 cup milk
Mix thoroughly and then drop onto a greased baking sheet by spoonfuls. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Muffins
3 cups of Quick Bread Mix
1 cup milk
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar

Blend all ingredients just until the Quick Bread Mix is moistened. Drop by spoonfuls into greased muffin tins or muffin tins lined with cupcake papers. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Note: to make blueberry muffins add 1 cup of blueberries; to make apple muffins, add 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 cup of chopped apples.
