1 tablespoon salt
1/4 cup double-acting baking powder
2 cups shortening
Cut shortening into dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse meal.
Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
WHITE CAKE: Blend 2 cups Baking Mix and 3/4 cup sugar. Add 3/4 cup milk and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla or lemon extract. Mix together and add 2 beaten eggs. Pour into greased loaf pan and bake at 375 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes until cake tests are done. Cool on rack; frost and serve.
WAFFLES: Combine 1 1/2 cups Baking Mix with 2 teaspoons sugar. Slowly add 1 egg yolk mixed with 1 cup milk. Beat the remaining egg white until stiff and fold into mixture. Pour on the heated waffle iron. Makes four waffles.

1 1/2 cups cornstarch
1 tsp. salt
Store in an airtight container (Glass mason jar) in a cool, dry place.
VANILLA PUDDING: In a saucepan, stir 2 cups water and 1 cup pudding mix over moderate heat until thickened. When the first bubble “plops,” pudding is done. Remove from heat but keep stirring and add 1 teaspoon butter or margarine and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Pour into serving dishes; let stand 10 to 15 minutes before serving, or refrigerate. Makes four servings.
CHOCOLATE PUDDING: Add one-ounce unsweetened chocolate (or more, according to taste) to the mixture while cooking and let melt. Proceed as for Vanilla Pudding.
