All Purpose Muffin Mix


All Purpose Muffin Mix

18 cups flour, whole wheat pastry or white flour or a combination of both
5 cups sugar or cane juice crystal’s
2 ¼ cups powdered milk
6 T baking powder
2 T baking soda
2 T salt
3 T cinnamon
3 t nutmeg

Combine all ingredients into a very large mixing bowl. Stir until
everything is mixed evenly. Spoon the mix into either gallon size zip
type bags or empty and clean coffee cans. To keep this mix fresh it
needs to be stored in the freezer.

To make 2 dozen muffins:
In a large bowl mix:
3 eggs
3 t. vanilla
2 cups water
½ cup butter (melted first) or oil of choice such as light olive oil, avocado oil, etc.. **See note below

Now add to above mixture:
5 ½ cups muffin mix

Any other OPTIONAL ingredients according to recipes that follow

Spoon muffin batter evenly between 2 muffin pans. Bake at 400 for 18 to
20 minutes.

These muffins freeze very well.

**Muffins do not necessarily need a lot of fat. The typical amount of oil is 1/4 cup per dozen (or 1/2 cup for the basic 2 dozen this recipe makes) I have made many muffins with no fat at all. So experiment with this mix and see what you prefer.

Apple Muffins: Add 3 cups of grated fresh apple, 1 tsp. cloves, 1 cup chopped nuts or raisins and sprinkle the tops with a bit of cinnamon/sugar mixture

Granola Muffins: Reduce the muffin mix amount to 4 cups, Add: 1 ½ cups granola
