help! I am so screwed.
I had gotten a recipe off this forum for whole wheat baking mix. It is great.
I could use it just like bisquik. I made pancakes and biscuits. But now I've lost it. I've search the recipes and can't find it. Can anyone help?

I've looked too and can't seem to find it. Anybody else?

It seems to me Beachgal posted one but she is off on holidays now so I can't ask her.

I've never made a baking mix but I use a boxed one from Southaven Farm. I get them at They have whole wheat, multi-grain, and a bunch of others. They make muffins, bread, pancakes, buns, etc. Would that help?

I have this recipe.... not sure where I got it from, but I hope this helps!

Baking Mix

8 c. flour (whole wheat or whole wheat pastry) (I used Bob's Red Mill Pastry Flour)
5 T. baking powder
1 T. salt
1 to 2 c. dry powder milk (nonfat dry milk)
1 1/2 c. oil
Optional: 1/2 c. nutritional yeast (I did not include this)

Combine dry ingredients well in a large bowl. Cut in oil with fingers to make fine crumbs. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator. Makes 11 cups.

Hi-protein: In place of 8 c. flour, use 5 1/2 c. ww flour, 1 c. soy flour and 1 1/2 c. wheat germ.
Whole grain: In place of 8 c. flour, use 5 c. ww flour, 1 c. bran, 1 c. wheat germ and 1 c. oatmeal or oat flour, rye flour, or other whole grain flour.

To make biscuits:
3 c. baking mix (from above recipe)
2/3 c. milk or water
Optional: grated cheese, herbs or spices

Stir milk into mix just until moistened. Knead briefly on floured surface; roll or pat out to 1/2" thick and cut into biscuits. Bake at 450 for 10 minutes.

Drop biscuits: Use 1 c. milk and drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake as above. Makes 18 2" biscuits.

That's just great, Boxergurl! Thanks for posting. I will try to remember to move it into the Recipe Section so it never gets lost again!

Sweet! I was eyeing a box of the mix in the grocery store the other day, but wanted to see if I could make my own. Thanks!

Thanks, Boxergurl! :hug:

I've never had a recipe like that, but it's indispensible, as I have a cookbook that insists on using 'Reduced Fat Bisquick' in everything. :rolleyes: I was at a loss as to what to substitute for that! :shrug: Thank you!!! :goodvibes:

I've posted the recipe in the recipe section and am closing this. Just PM me if you think it needs to be re-opened, okay?
