    Everyday baking is my FAVORITE cooking show on television these days. Please John, do some more episodes. I still enjoy watching your show and have all the recipes and have tried MANY of them so I need some new recipes. I just think the way he teaches is great and I use many of the hints he gives.

    I would love to have a recipe that is comparable to Krusteze Pancake mix. Anyone out there have one of these?

    this won't replace Bisquick because it has not fat in it. Try this: 8 1/2 cups flour, 4 tbs baking powder, 1 tbs salt 2 tsp cream of tartar, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 1/2 cups instant nonfat dry milk or dry buttermilk powder, 2 1/4 cups shortening. Mix all dry ingredients together then cut in the shortening for coarse crumbs. Store airtight for about 3 months. Makes about 13 cups and substitutes perfectly for Bisquick.

    All the teenagers that eat at my house LOVE these bars. The pancakes recipe really is a sweet dessert version, BUT you could reduce the sugar in the mix and add it back into specific recipes (or not). I haven't tried the clafouti recipe yet but I plan to...I too would like to see more recipe ideas for this mix. Muffins, cupcakes, and waffles come to mind.

    try mixing fresh or frozen blueberries with a small amount of water ( a tbsp or two) with a minimal amount of sugar. Just enough to make a syrup/sauce. Heat and stir until sugar is melted. We also make our own whipped cream using heavy whipping cream, and i only put just enough sugar to slightly sweeten the cream (the container calls for 2 tbsp, but i use like 1teaspoon). The tartness of the berries and the lightly sweetened whipped cream are a perfect addition to these sweet hot cakes.
