Backpacking Biscuit Mix

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by wildheart

This is a basic mix to start with when you're planning a camping trip. Use it to make dumplings, pancakes, and fruit cobblers. If you travel with more 'stuff' you can bake biscuits and short cakes too.

This is wonderful. I've taken it on many hunting and fishing trips. I really recommend keeping some on hand at home too.
