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.
