Kitchen DIY: Move over Betty Crocker

Last week I showed you how easy it is to make your own seasoning mixes and this week I’m going to show you how simple it is make your own baking mixes. No more boxed cake, cookie or brownie mixes! Making your own cuts out the preservatives and artificial flavors, but also enables you to always make baked goods from scratch. Since you are controlling the ingredients, make it using your favorite ingredients. If you want to cut back on the sugar, replace it with stevia or coconut sugar. Switch out white flour for white whole wheat or a mix of whole wheat.

We all have either given or received a cake or cookie mix around the holidays and this is the same thing. Why not stock your own pantry with them so you can make a homemade cake or cookie at any time?!

Here are the ingredients to make your very own baking mixes. Click on the pink titles to find out how to make them. I suggest storing them in ziplock bags and writing the wet ingredients needed and baking directions directly on the bag or storing the mixes in jars with a note attached stating the wet ingredients needed with the baking directions. Happy baking!!
