I originally posted a Homemade Bisquick recipe about one year ago. In that recipe, I used a pastry blender to mix in shortening. Well, I have made the baking mix several times. Along the way, I made a few changes. I now use butter instead of shortening. I also now use a food processor instead of a pastry blender to mix in my butter.
Over the past year, I discovered a recipes for homemade crackers and homemade graham crackers. Those cracker recipes use a food processor to mix up the ingredients. That’s when I thought about using it for my Homemade Bisquick recipe.
Homemade Bisquick Recipe Using a Food Processor
(Recipe adapted from Food.com)
- 3 cups flour (I use 2 cups all purpose flour and 1 cup white wheat flour)
- 1 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold
Place flours, baking powder and salt in food processor. Cover with lid and lock. Pulse to mix.
Take cold butter out of refrigerator. Cut butter into pieces and place on top of flour mixture in food processor.
TIP: Make sure to keep the butter in refrigerator until you need it. The butter mixes best when it is cold.
Cover with lid and lock. Pulse to combine. Do this until mixture resembles fine crumbs.
Store the mixture in an airtight container. I place mine in the refrigerator. The original recipe state it can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 months but I’d also make a note of the butter’s expiration date.
Makes about 4 cups baking mix.
NOTE: It’s important to not overfill your food processor. That is why I only put 3 cups total of flour into my food processor because that’s all it can hold. My food processor is a Hamilton Beach 10 Cup Food Processor.
TIP: I like to make things in big quantities. Since I have all my ingredients out anyways, I double, sometimes I even quadruple the recipe above. So to quadruple the recipe, I repeat the steps above four (4) times. This gives me about 16 cups of baking mix.
Use whenever your recipe calls for “Bisquick Mix.”
WHAT I MAKE: I use our baking mix for waffles, dumplings, easy cheeseburger pie, mini pot pies and drop biscuits.
NOTE: I have not had luck using this to make pancakes. Instead, I use a wonderful homemade pancake recipe.
I do love making waffles with this homemade baking mix. I follow the Bisquick Waffle recipe plus I add 2 tablespoons of sugar. If I don’t add the sugar, the waffles taste bland. I also quadruple the recipe because I like to make a lot of waffles at one time. See all the yummy waffles below.
Have you ever made your own homemade baking/Bisquick mix?
Have a Sweet Day!
