Frugal Friday: Homemade Bisquick Mix

I have always kept Bisquick in my pantry. I have several recipes that I use Bisquick in and I like to make pancakes using Bisquick. I never really thought about what is in it, I just purchased it as a convenience item. I am trying to stop buying convenience items so I decided to do some research and find out what is in Bisquick mix. I found multiple recipes on the internet but this one is my favorite.

      Homemade Bisquick Mix

      • 9 cups All Purpose Flour

      • 1/4 cup Sugar

      • 2 1/3 cup Powdered Milk

      • 1/3 cup Baking Powder

      • 1 tablespoon Salt

      • 2 cups Shortening

      1. In a large bowl mix together thoroughly the dry ingredients.

      2. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture is the consistency of cornmeal.

      3. Store mixture in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.

      1. great idea! I recently purchased a cookbook called Make A Mix because I also want to make more from scratch and stop buying convenience foods. and now I can't wait to try this mix recipe!

      2. Leslie,
        That sounds like a great book!! Who is the author and where did you buy it?

      3. I use a version of homemade Bisquick too - except it tastes 100% better than Bisquick (if that's possible!) We love it. I have a tweaked version from More with Less Cookbook.

        The Make a Mix cookbook is good! I checked it out at my library...might want to peek there first.:)


      4. Thanks for the recipe! I really like using Bisquick too, and this seems like it will be a huge money saver!
