HERE is the Hitch it's lost!! I hope somewhere there is someone who can help.
See the recipe below, I hope it is of use !
ROYAL BAKING MIX MASTER RECIPE
7 cups flour
2 tsp salt
3 tbsp Royal Baking Powder
1 1/2 cups (3/4lb) any high grade vegetable shortening (do not use butter)
Sift the dry ingredients together in a bowl or on a large sheet of paper.
Rub in the shortening until the mixture looks like fine mealie meal.
Store it in a tin with a tight lid, or in a screw-top jar, & keep it on a shelf in the pantry.
Use as required.
This mixture will keep for 8-10 weeks, if stored in a cool pantry. It is not necessary to keep it in a refrigerator.
Hope this is the one you're looking for. Ex S.A'n.
There are also mixes for crust pastry & flaky pastry
What are planning to make with this recipe? let us know if it works out. I find not all South African recipes work out in Canada.
