Tasty Tuesday: Homemade Bisquick Mix
I’m always looking for ways to save and also to eat healthier. So when I came across this recipe for Homemade Bisquick I was pretty excited. Not only is it cheaper than buying Bisquick it is also much healthier because the homemade version has no partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, which I really like to avoid. And you couldn’t ask for an easier thing to make! It literally just takes minutes.
On top of all that, we actually like the things I make with this better than when I made them with Bisquick mix! Now I haven’t tried it to make pancakes or biscuits so I can’t speak for that, but for other dishes that take Bisquick it’s been amazing. I plan to share some of those recipes over the next several weeks.
5 c. flour (you could use part whole wheat flour- I’ve only tried it subbed with 1 c. whole wheat but it worked fine)
1/4 c. baking powder
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 c. shortening (I use butter)
Mix dry ingredients together then cut in shortening until crumbly. Store in refrigerator** and use as you would Bisquick.
Yields: A little over 6 cups
** If you don’t use butter or margarine for this recipe, but instead use vegetable shortening, you could store at room temperature.Add a Comment
