Clabber Girl Baking Mix
Clabber Girl Baking Mixes
This is a versatile mix, and works well as a substitute in other "baking mix" recipes. Mixture stores well on the counter (cupboard) for 3 months or in the refrigerator for 6 months. If you want to substitute part whole wheat flour, it is recommended you store the mix in the refrigerator, since the oils in whole wheat flour can make it turn rancid faster than all-purpose flour. You may substitute up to half of the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour, whole wheat pastry flour or your choice of bleached of your choice.
In a large bowl combine flour, Clabber Girl Baking Powder, salt, cream of tartar, and sugar. Stir together until thoroughly combined. Cut shortening into mixture with a pastry blender until it resembles coarse crumbs. Place mix into a sealed container to be stored, in a dry place (plastic containers work fine).
