Soul Food Saturday

Sometimes no matter what you do, you have a huge craving for something that you just can’t get rid of until you have that first bite; okay sometimes you really need the whole plate full. Am I right? This happened to be one of those days. And wouldn’t you know it; the first ingredient was still on my shopping list. So in comes another Internet search. Yep, you guessed it. I loved it enough to make a mountain of pancakes and then share the recipe with you. This baking mix is a good as the boxed stuff, maybe even better dare I say? I’ll let you decide! Grab a fork and your favorite pancake toppers, because this plate is nearly ready!
Homemade Baking Mix
 9 c.all purpose flour
1 c. dry buttermilk
5 tbs. baking powder
¼ c. sugar
1 tbs. salt
1 c. shortening

In a large bowl add flour, buttermilk, baking powder, sugar and salt. Stir to thoroughly combine. Add half of shortening add a time, and use pastry blender (or 2 forks) to cut into the dry ingredients. Add second half of shortening and continue until the mixture resembles corn meal. Store mix in air tight container, for up to 3 months.
  2 c. mix
1 c. water
 2 eggs

All your family favorite toppings- syrup, fruit, jellies, butter, or all the above!
In a medium bowl add mix, water, and eggs. Whisk to combine, and continue until smooth. Add ¼ c. amount to a greased pan or griddle. Flip when edges are dry. Cook until golden. Repeat with remaining batter.
Whether you love them topped with just butter, pieces of fruit on the side, or doused with your favorite syrup; these will definitely be a winner at your table as well. Enjoy!
