Goodbye Trans-Fat

Just came across your Make Your Own Mix web page and thought I would add my two cents worth. I have been using oil to make biscuits, muffins, pancakes, waffles, cinnamon rolls. In short, anything that can be made with a dry mix. I even make up the dry mix beforehand using baking powder, salt, flour. Seal it in a tight container and use as needed.

These biscuits turn out perfect every time. Recipe I use is:

2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
4 tsps baking powder

Preheat oven to 450F. If you wish you may add two tsps white sugar, sift or mix together well. Then beat together 1/4 cup canola or other oil, 1 egg, and add enough milk to this to make a generous cup. Pour small amounts of wet mixture over dry ingredients and fold in until all dry ingredients are moistened. Do not stir any more than needed. Turn out on floured board and gently press into rectangle about one inch thick. Slice with floured knife into two inch strips each way. Place these squares in ungreased pan and bake in 450 oven for about 18-20 mins until lightly browned. Before baking brush or rub with milk if desired to make browning more even. Secret is to have hot oven ready, do not overmix, handle as little as possible, get into oven quickly, batter should be moist, only floured enough to handle.

Hi Moore,
