DIY baking mixes save time and money, and give you the chance to enjoy homemade baked goods whenever you’re in the mood to bake.
You can make specialty mixes–for example, corn bread, gluten-free mix, or cake mix–ahead of time with recipes found here. When you have a craving for some fresh-baked goodies, all you have to do is add a few things (typically eggs and milk), heat up the oven, and set the timer.
(You can also save time in the mornings by measuring and mixing the dry ingredients of pancake mix.)
Store the mixes in airtight containers or Ziploc bags. Don’t forget to label each container!
