Last time I shared my bulk bread maker mix, I mentioned that people say dumb things, so for those looking for a few ways to feed larger families I thought I would share mine. Bulk mixes aren't a new idea, but the first time you try them you'll be sold. Remember if your not feeding a huge family you can always half the recipe but these will last for around 6-8 months. I have never had an issue things go quick around the mansion.
- 16 cups of Plain Flour (also called All Purpose in other countries)
- 6 cups of sugar
- 6Tbs Baking Powder
- 4 tsp Salt
- 4 tsp Cinnamon
Mix all the ingredients into a large container, then get ready to make muffins in a snap!
I do heaps of different flavors, using whatever I have on hand:
- 1/2 cup of choc chops
- 1 grated apple and 1/2 cup of Sulatanas
- 1/4 cup of whit choc chips & 1/4 cup of dried blueberries
- 1 Tbs of Poppyseeds 1 tsp lemon essence & a Tbs of lemon zest (change to how you like your lemon we love it
So here's how I make them up
2 &3/4 cups of Muffin Mix
1 cup of Milk ( I use light milk but full cream will work)
1/2 cup of Canola Oil
Preheat oven to 190 Degrees Celsius (400F)
Spray muffin tin (I use a 12 tin tray)
Mix all of the above until just combined
Add desired flavors
Measure 1/4 cup of mix into each muffin cup
Bake for 18-20 minutes
Now you may noticed mine are a little cracked...well so am I, but this is due to my oven being a little off and baking is an exact science.
My taste tester really doesn't mind!
So there you go a quick, easy and cheap way to fill those lunch boxes up. For the price of 1&1/2 boxes of pre purchased muffin mix, you have around 15 mixes, with no preservatives.
