If you live with finicky eaters, this recipe is for you! Ever since my children were little, whenever I chose to serve an entree that could be perceived by kids as “iffy,” like fresh fish for dinner, I’d avoid getting the evil eye by always having these delicious biscuits parked strategically at the table. If you don’t want to fuss with measuring tools and bags of flour on a hectic weekday (which is when we could all use a good biscuit!), use a few minutes on a leisurely weekend or on an unoccupied evening to quickly put together this mix. That way, a fresh batch of tender biscuits is always just minutes away.
For the Mix
- 14 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 cup plus 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Use a whisk to thoroughly combine all the ingredients in an extra-large mixing bowl and sift this into another large bowl. Whisk again thoroughly, then spoon the mix into a 5-pound capacity canister with a tight-fitting lid. Store the canister on a cool dry pantry shelf. Now you’re ready to use this mix to make some wonderful Scones or Baking Powder Biscuits!
