Homemade Bisquick
This comes froma dear online friend of mine, Janice Trevail. Any recipe that calls for Bisquick, you can replace it with this. It works beautifully:

Homemade Bisquick

9 c sifted unbleached flour
1/3 c baking powder
1 tbsp salt
2 cups solid vegetable shortening

Combine flour, baking powder and salt in large bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or 2 butter knives until it is crumbly (cornmeal type consistency). Store in an airtight container.

Using the homemade bisquick mix above:

For Biscuits

I can't believe the number of wonderful looking recipes you can get out of this one mix! I am definitely going to try it!

You are very welcome! Don't forget to go to the brownie master mix and the oatmeal cookie master mix, those are wonderful! ::-)::

kimmyo 02-04-2002 07:04 PM

Well today I made the Bisquick Mix! Very easy and quick!:) Then I tried the pancake recipe and the kids thought they were great !:heart:

Amanda 02-04-2002 07:32 PM

Oh good! I always liked the pancake recipe too, but didn't care for the biscuits. HOWEVER I am not much for flaky biscuits, I have never liked them. I'm a bread person, yum. :) When we go to KFC my hubby always gets to eat my biscuit, gag.

hee hee

ajrsmom 02-04-2002 09:01 PM

dxlifer 02-15-2002 11:36 AM

thank you for the great recipes and reminding me of all the uses for that old standby, biscuit mix. i always make my own biscuits from scratch but, over the years had forgotten how versatile this basic and easy to make mix is. I admit to sometimes being promifligate and making the mix with butter when i want a especially rich biscuit to serve with a "dunking" meal, usually for company. sorta showing off i guess.

sharlibird 02-26-2002 02:23 PM

Just a little note...I always use a biscuit mix to make my pancakes from...the kids like it better.

I used to use Pioneer baking mix, but they discontinued it. However, using their recipe and my homemade biscuit mix (similar recipe to yours), the pancakes are great!

Their recipe added 1/2 tsp vanilla flavoring and 1 Tbsp. sugar to the basic ingredients you listed for pancakes. I experimented with mine and found that we like 1 tsp. vanilla and 2 Tbsps. sugar in our pancakes.

Sometimes it pays to play around with recipes. Just thought I'd pass that along.:::

kimmyo 02-26-2002 08:32 PM

Thanks for the tip!:)

Bisquik Muffins?
Can the homemade Bisquik mix be used to make breakfast muffins? If so does anyone have any nice recipes? Fruit ones would be nice. Banana etc... It will be a nice change for my girls in the morning. They will think they are having cake for breakfast!

fitten 03-19-2002 05:27 AM

these are great recipes. I have been looking for these for years. My mom had nine kids and always used these recipes. over the years she lost them. thanks.

Mom2twoboyz 04-17-2002 06:10 PM

^^ I made the easy coffee cake today...I confess I used my offbrand biscuit mix. I need to use it up before I make the master mix (it's time...I used all but 1/2 cup or so today). It was so yummy. I made it right before I went to pick up the boys and covered it with a towel and even though we took a little longer getting home than I had anticipated it was still warm. They were so surprised and gobbled it all up. I even gave my ex a slice and a cup of coffee when he came to pick up the boys for the evening. :angel: He liked it, too. :-P::

I can't wait to make the mix. I've just about got my grocery list completed and then....whoaaaaa nelly!! ROFLMAO

HSma 04-17-2002 08:14 PM

bisquik receipes
Thank-you soooo much. I have used some of these, but am looking (NOW) for an opportunity to use more---especially the coffecke and the Broccoli-cheese pie!! ^^

thanks again...and I am sure that my fellas will thanks you too!!


Mom2twoboyz 04-18-2002 03:45 PM

I made the biscuit flour today.....wellllll.......all I had was wheat flour ( I don't know HOW that happened), so I used it. I think this will be my batch to use in main dish recipes and I'll have to make another batch to use for breads. :. I made some biscuits just to see how they would taste and my ds and I agreed they were "ok". Anyway, it's still a good deal, right? :o

Amanda 04-18-2002 03:48 PM

Big difference with wheat! In fact, I think the measurements end up being different if you use wheat flour, but I don't know for sure. :(

sharlibird 04-21-2002 07:43 PM

Most recipes I have ever seen using wheat flour for biscuits and such only use about 1/3 to 2/3 or 1/2 to 1/2 ratios of wheat to white flour. Wheat flour has more fiber because it has not been processed as much...better for you, but not as fluffy and smooth.

When you get some white flour, make the bisquick master mix. Using a ratio of 1/3 wheat to 2/3 white, mix up your two mixes (1 cup wheat mix to 2 cups white mix). As least things you make will taste a little better. Hope this helps!:)

Mom2twoboyz 04-22-2002 09:37 AM

:daisy: Thanks. I'lll probably try that today. How did I ever get anything done without you guys? ;-)

EMMJEAN 04-25-2002 09:07 AM

i have a few ? about this.can you use it in the regular bisquick recipes because i have ton of thier cookbooks.say you like cookbooks once and that is all anyone get you for your birthday.and the other ? is how long can you store it for?

Mom2twoboyz 04-25-2002 09:31 AM

Hi Emmajean,

So far, I have used it in any recipe calling for Bisquick and it has worked. I think I read that it will keep for 12 weeks in an airtight container. I keep mine in the refrigerator. I think it will probably run out long before it gets "too old". I've even used the mix in a couple of recipes that called for flour.....if it called for 3 tsps, I put in 2 tsps flour, and one tsp gave it a nice fluffiness.

That's so funny and true about the cookbooks. ROFLMAO I, personally, would never spend money on a cookbook again. It's too easy to get recipes online. My current project: I print out the on the front, reinsert and print upside down on the back a different recipe. Then I'm putting them in a three-ring binder. When I get to the end in one direction, I simply turn the notebook upside down and start from the back. Two cookbooks in one. ;) Plus, it is a cookbook of ONLY things my family liked, things that were "keepers" ...and things with normal ingredients that you don't have to go to gourmet delis or special markets to get, so I can always make any given one. It's really helping to organize my dinner routine. I'm soooo grateful for FamilyCorner.:*

sharlibird 04-27-2002 11:30 AM

Hi Emmajean,

Another point to note is where you store it in the fridge. I once stored mine on the door (had only a little left & no time to make more). I put it in another container and left it on the upper part of the door. Hubby bought me some of the regular mix when I was sick, so I didn't use it for several weeks. There was mold on it!:eek:

Lessons learned the hard way are the best learned, I guess. I also have used it in all my Bisquick recipes...Pioneer mix recipes also. It works just fine.

kimmyo 05-23-2002 08:07 AM

I mixed up a new batch of the bisquick mix (for Pancakes) and seperated it into ziploc bags. I wrote the directions on each bag. Now when I'm at the campground all I have to do is add the milk and eggs to the bag and mix it up and its ready to pour...straight from the bag. No fuss-no muss!:)

Bilby 04-19-2003 11:34 PM

When I made the impossible chocolate pie I only had some brownie master mix so I put that in instead and it turned out beautifully.;) A real chocolate fix

LuvMyFF 10-18-2003 11:21 AM

Thank you so much for posting these wonderful recipes. I was looking for this! Perfect timing ^^
