Magic Mix

Friday, March 13, 2009

I recently found a great recipe called Magic Mix from the Everyday Food Storage blog. You mix this up and store it in your fridge. It makes a great white sauce, cream of...soups, and pudding. I have done mixes before that you can store to make your own white sauce or cream soups, but honestly they don't work! I have made alfredo sauce, soup (a creamy veggie soup) and chocolate pudding with the Magic Mix and it has worked everytime!

Here is the recipe for Magic Mix:
2 1/3 cup powdered milk
1 cup all purpose flour
2 sticks butter at room temp.

I blend this in the Kitchen Aid with the wire whisk attachment. Should resemble cornmeal when it is completely mixed. Store in the fridge.

Here are some recipes to use the Magic Mix with...

White Sauce
2/3 cup Magic Mix
1 cup water

Mix the two ingredients in a saucepan. Stir with a wire whisk and put on medium heat on the stove. Stir constantly. Cook til bubbly and thick. I tend to double this and then add parmesan cheese for alfredo sauce.

Condensed Cream Soups (cream of mushroom, cream of chicken, etc.)
1 cup Magic Mix
3/4 cup liquid (you could use water, chicken broth, liquid from can of mushrooms)

Mix the two ingredients in a saucepan. Stir with a wire whisk and put on mediaum heat. Stir constantly until thick and bubbly. This will make the equivalent of one can of soup.

Magic Pudding
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups Magic Mix
2 cups water
1 tsp vanilla (Optional)

Combine in a saucepan: Magic Mix, water, and sugar . Stir over medium heat until pudding bubbles. Add vanilla and beat. Cover and cool. FOR CHOCOLATE PUDDING: Combine 3 TBS cocoa with the sugar and follow the original steps. Makes 2 cups pudding or 4 1/2 cup servings.
