Tomorrow, I’ll give your some of the recipes to use this mix. I used the old-fashioned oats, but you can also use quick-cooking oats.
Basic Oats Mix
6 Cups Flour, All-purpose (about 1 pound 11 ounces)
4 Tablespoons Baking Powder
4 Teaspoons Salt
1 1/3 Cups Shortening (about 9.33 ounces)
2 Cups Oats -- quick or old fashioned, uncooked (about 6 ounces)
Sift flour, baking powder and salt together in a large bowl. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in oats.
Store in a cool, dry place until ready to use.
Makes enough for 4 batches muffins, biscuits, dumplings or applesauce bread.
Cost: $1.67 per full recipe or 17¢ per cup if you get 9 3/4 cups from the recipe.
Yield: "9 3/4 Cups"
