Ever wondered if you could make your own homemade Bisquick baking mix? You can! I have tried several different quick mixes in the past that called for shortening in the recipe. I recently wanted to try making homemade Red Lobster biscuits and ran across this recipe that uses butter in the place of the shortening. I think I like this recipe better! It is definitely better tasting.
This mix can be used just like you would store-bought Bisquick mix. You can use it to make pancakes, muffins, biscuits, coffeecake, and more…in any recipe that calls for Bisquick.
I made several batches at once and placed them in a gallon sized Ziploc freezer bag to put in the freezer. You can’t keep this mix in the pantry because of the butter added to the mix.
Bisquick Mix Recipe
- 5 cups flour
- 1/4 cup baking powder
- 2 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 cup butter
Mix dry ingredients together and then use a pastry blender to mix in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Use immediately or place in a freezer safe container and freeze for up to 6 months.
You can find lots of recipes using Bisquick on the Betty Crocker web site.
