Homemade Baking Mixes

Use these homemade baking mix recipes, including biscuit mix, muffin mix and brownie mix, instead of store-bought baking mixes.

Biscuit Baking Mix

You need just four common pantry staples to put together this versatile mix. I use it in recipes that call for store-bought baking mix. It's the key to lightly browned biscuits as well as to chunky dumpling soup. —Tami Christman, Soda Springs, Idaho

Good Mornin' Pancake Mix

I love these moist, fluffy pancakes on a wintry day. They make a perfect gift for family and friends. Just put the mix in two plastic bags tied with holiday ribbons, and don't forget to include prep directions. —Sharon Sutton, Lindsey, Ohio

All-Star Muffin Mix

I like to keep this mix in a handy place, like the pantry or cupboard, so I mix up muffins quickly for dinner or if a friend is stopping by for coffee. —Nancy Mackey, Madison, Ohio

Basic Brownie Mix

For variety, add extra goodies to this simple brownie mix. It's a quick answer to dessert for a busy family or when unexpected company stops by. —Kathryn Roach, Edgemont, Arkansas

Waffle Mix

Thanks to apple pie spice and cinnamon, finicky eaters won't mind the heart-healthy use of whole wheat flour in these wonderful waffles. Give away half of the mix…and keep the other half for yourself! —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

Gluten-Free Flour Mix

I make this recipe in two-quart batches and store them in airtight jars. My son and I both have celiac disease and love that we can use this mix to still enjoy traditional dishes. —Bernice Fenskie, Wexford, Pennsylvania

Homemade Muffin Mix

Whether your family prefers sweet or savory muffins, you can satisfy them with this versatile muffin mix. Included are directions to prepare plain, cheddar and cinnamon-raisin muffins. —Audrey Thibodeau, Gilbert, Arizona

Whole-Grain Waffle Mix

My mother-in-law shared the recipe for these golden waffles our daughter, Kayla, loves. Just add a few ingredients to the mix and you'll be enjoying their homemade whole-grain taste in minutes. —Michelle Sheldon, Edmond, Oklahoma

Peanut Butter Brownie Mix

I discovered this recipe in our local newspaper, gave it a try, and my family loved it. If you pack the dry ingredients in a quart canning jar, you can cover the lid with Christmasy fabric for a quick, festive touch. —Lynn Dowdall, Perth, Ontario
