Homemade Bisquick Mix

Homemade Bisquick Mix

Makes 7 cups

6 cups flour
3 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon salt
1 cup vegetable shortening (I used powdered shortening)

Sift flour, baking powder and salt three times in a large bowl (I didn't do that)
Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Store mixture in airtight container in the fridge up to 4 months. Use it whenever recipe calls for bisquick.

My notes: I didn't want to have to store in the fridge so I used powdered shortening. When doing this you will have to use more water when you mix it up. We just had pancakes with it for breakfast and it was great.

To make pancakes or waffles:

2 cups of mix
2 eggs
1/4 cup oil
1 1/2-2 cups of milk

If you like your pancakes thinner use more milk. If not they will be thicker pancakes. I used 1 1/2 cups milk today and they were a little thicker. Easy and good. Probably less expensive too.


  1. Thanks for linking up with We Did It Wednesday! I really like this idea. I will be trying this soon!

  2. Yes! I buy this stuff all the time, and I always think "I bet I could make it for so much cheaper." THANK YOU.
