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
- In a large bowl mix together thoroughly the dry ingredients.
- Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture is the consistency of cornmeal.
- Store mixture in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 months.
