Frugal Homemade Ready Made Mixes

Posted on 01 July 2013 by noelskitchen


If you’re like me and like to have some Frugal Homemade Ready Made Mixes in your pantry, then I’m sure you’re pantry is stocked with some great ones. Using ready made mixes are a great way to save money. Most of them last in your pantry for up to 6 months. Plus, it’s a great way to control the ingredients that are in the mixes. If you’ve never made your own mixes from scratch, it’s a great time to start.



This week, I’m taking a few of those ready made mixes camping with us. It’s easy to make hearty eating with instant cooking. Mixes are lightweight and compact. Here’s what’s we’re bringing with us:

Save Recipe
6 cups whole-wheat flour
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups instant nonfat dry milk
1 Tablespoon salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 wheat germ ( I use oat bran)
1/4 cup baking powder
2 cups vegetable shortening
In a large bowl, combine whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, dry milk, salt, sugar, wheat germ or oat bran and baking powder. Mix well.
With a pastry blender, cut in shortening until evenly distributed.
Put in a large airtight container. Label. Store in a cool, dry place. Use within 10 to 12 weeks.
*Always be sure to label and date your mixes so you know when to use them by.

Save Recipe
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 1/2 cups water
2 1/4 cups Wheat Mix
Combine egg and water in a medium bowl.
Stir in Wheat Mix until just moistened.
Cook on a hot oiled griddle about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned on both sides.
*If you were taking this recipe camping, place Wheat mix in a ziploc bag, label with wet ingredients. Then when ready to use, add wet ingredients to ziploc bag, reseal bag, mix ingredients by gently squeezing the bag 30 to 40 seconds. This means no fuss and no mess. The kids can even help with this.

    3. Fresh Homemade Bread….5 Minutes A Day Says:

      [...] Place a metal broiling pan in the oven on the lowest rack and preheat the oven  to 450 degrees. Put your loaf in the oven and then quickly pour a cup of HOT water into the broiler pan and shut your oven. Bake for 30 minutes. (Oven temperatures vary, first I tried baking for 45 minutes, which gave me a crunchy darker crust sour dough bread, then I tried baking for 30 to 35 minutes ( bread pictured below) gave me a crusty golden bread, and then I reduced the baking time to 25 minutes because during  the summer months  my oven heats up faster, it gives me a soft french roll light crust bread. (Just the way we like it.)  This bread has that awesome crunchy crust with an incredible soft flaky inside. We seem to all inhale the bread so fast because it’s so delicious. The recipe states this makes four 1 lb. loaves, but for sandwich size loaves, it makes two decent loaves. You can double or triple it and store it in the fridge for 2 weeks making this recipe a great ready made recipe. [...]
