Nellie, thanks for this recipe.
Nancy, you can make your own baking mix:
You can make your own. Here is one recipe:
* 8 cups all-purpose flour (or 4 cups each all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour)
* 2 Tablespoons baking powder
* 1 Tablespoon salt
* 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 2 cups dry nonfat milk
* 2 cups shortening
Mix flour, baking powder, salt, cream of tartar, baking soda, nonfat milk, and shortening together in large bowl (if you have a large mixer it is ideal to use for blending this mix but it can also be done quite adequately using a pastry blender to cut in shortening). Add shortening about a half cup at a time mixing well after each addition. Mixture will be mealy when mixed adequately.
Put in air-tight container and store either in refrigerator or at room temperature. Use within about 3 months.
