The Benefits of Homemade Baking Mixes
Homemade baking mixes are wonderful and can save a lot of time when our schedules are so busy. With our schedules as busy as they are, it often limits the amount of time we can devote to preparing homemade baked goods. Your freezer is there to help you. With the assistance of your freezer, no matter how busy your schedule is, you can have homemade bread, fresh blueberry muffins or a warm batch of chocolate chip cookies in minutes.
Freezer Cooking Breakfast Mixes
I began making my own baking mixes when I found out how easy it is to do. I usually make one batch to bake immediately and 4 extra batches to freeze. For muffins mixes and pancake mixes, and quick breads or yeast breads, I simply freeze those in zip-loc freezer bags. Once I place dry ingredients in the bag, I then label the freezer bags with wet ingredients, and baking time and store them in the freezer. When I’m ready to bake, I just pull out of the freezer, add wet ingredients and bake.
You’ll simply be amazed to see what great breakfasts you can pull off if you do some prep work ahead of time. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup oil
1 cup milk
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
When Ready To Make:
Add in: nuts, bluberries or chocolate chips.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
Makes: 12-18 muffins
Freezer cooking can save the day for a busy mom when you’re preparing meals in advance, and freezer cooking is not just for dinners. With a little prep work, breakfast, the most important meal of the day for your family, can be quick, healthy, easy and delicious!
