Tasty Tuesday: Homemade “Bisquick” Mix
I’m always looking for ways to eat healthier and save at the same time. So when I came across this recipe for Homemade Bisquick Mix I was pretty excited. Not only is it cheaper than buying Bisquick it also doesn’t have bunch of strange, unhealthy ingredients either. 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. (I like to use a pastry blender to do this. Here’s the one I have.) 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
