Here's one - This is out of my very old New American Cookbook. 8 cups flour, 10 teaspoons baking powder, 4 teaspoons salt, 1 1/2 cups butter. Mix in batches in kitchen whizz and use for scones, biscuits, dumplings, waffles, muffins, cakes etc. Keeps at least a month in the fridge.

copied and pasted from another site
the baking mix from Destitute Gourmet a few years ago but after looking at the ratios of what was in it compared to my regular recipes for scones etc ended up doing a spreadsheet comparing the ingredients in scones, pikelets, waffles and pancakes. adjusted the amounts in each recipe so that the amount of flour in each was the same.then looked at the quantities of the other ingredients and came up with my own baking mix recipe.
10 cup flour
18 tsp baking powder
250g butter (or 1/2 butter 1/2 kremelta)
2 tsp salt
2 cups milk powder
Sift dry ingredients and rub in fat or whizz the whole lot in a food processor.
For scones add 3/4c water to 2 3/4c mix
For waffles add 2c water, 2 eggs and 2 tablespoons sugar to 3 1/3c mix
For pikelets add 3/4c water, 1 egg and 2 tablespoons sugar to 1 1/3c mix
For pancakes add 2c water and 2 eggs to 2 3/4c mix

keep mixture in fridge
