Baking Mixes...Homemade Quick Bread Mix

When Myrna and I saw this quick bread mix and the recipes that used it in “Crisco Cooking" we knew we had to make it.  I volunteered to make the mix and we split it, both making some recipes from it.  We will share some of those the rest of the week.  I can say that it worked very well and was easy to make in my food processor.  I am including a half recipe if you want to try a smaller amount first.
This is the easy way to make a variety of gift loaves or pot-luck bring-alongs.  We like quick breads with summer main dish salads too.
