I admit it. I use Bisquick often because it’s an easy way to make pancakes, waffles and dumplings (for chicken & dumplings). In my attempt to do more scratch cooking, I thought I’d try a homemade version of a Bisquick mix. It’ll save us money and homemade has got to be better for you.
The following recipe is easy to put together and makes about 7 cups of the mix. I have already made waffles and drop biscuits using this Homemade Bisquick Mix Recipe with great results.
6 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon salt
1 cup vegetable shortening or unsalted butter (2 sticks) – Updated on 9/19/12 – Note: I use butter.
Mix together flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Cut in shortening or butter with knives or a pastry blender until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
Make about 7 cups. Store the mixture in an airtight container. I placed mine in the refrigerator. It can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 months.
Use whenever your recipe calls for “Bisquick Mix”.
