Here is a recipe I had on file:
Multi-Purpose Baking Mix
8 cups flour (4c. Unbleached flour + 4c. Whole wheat)
1/4 cup double-acting baking powder
4 tsp. Salt
1 cup shortening (can substitute oil, and keep mix refrigerated)
1 and 1/3 cups dry powdered milk
In large bowl, blend together: 4 c. unbleached flour, salt, and baking powder. Add shortening and cut in with pastry blender until it resembles coarse crumbs. Work out your aggressions here, with that tool - one of my favorite workouts! Stir in powdered milk, then whole wheat flour. Store in an airtight container or heavy duty ziploc bag (keeps about 2 months). Refrigerate, if using oil instead of shortening. For longer storage, you can freeze it. Much healthier and cheaper than fancy brands of mix.
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
and than add the rest of your ingredients. So easy, good luck
Here's a recipe that I found on the Recipe Zaar website.
Just get a cookbook, or go on line and find the recipe for what you are making and do it from sctatch. It doesn't take that much more time.
