Pancakes and biscuits are delicious breakfast foods, but making them can be time consuming. Prepare a mix in advance and cut your cooking time in half.
Mix the flour, sugar, powdered milk, baking powder, and salt together in the large bowl.
Use a fork or pastry blender to mix in the shortening.
The mixture should have a slightly mealy texture after adding the shortening.
Put the mixture into a container, put the lid on, and store it in a cool dry place.
Use the baking mix within two months to keep ingredients from spoiling. Use as you would any other baking mix and enjoy a quick hot stack of pancakes or biscuits any time you want.
