Bisquick is a handy little baking mix that can be used to make a variety of dishes. I remember my mom making my brother and me pancakes with it on Saturday mornings when we were kids. Now that I'm an adult I use it to make biscuits, sticky buns and dumplings.
I'm not someone who only eats all-natural products but if I can easily make my own version of a store-bought product and cut out needless preservatives, then I'm in!
Here is my go-to recipe for homemade baking mix that looks and tastes just like Bisquick, minus the fake stuff.
Homemade Baking Mix
Because this mix contains butter and not hydrogenated oil, it must be stored
in the refrigerator. It will keep for up to 3 months in an airtight container.
Makes 3 cups
3 cups flour
1 & 1/2 Tablespoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, cold
In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
To incorporate the butter, you can either cut it into the dry mixture using a pastry cutter (pictured above) or with a food processor until fully incorporated. The mixture will be the same consistency throughout and there should be no more clumps of butter. Use cup-for-cup in place of Bisquick.
