Homemade Bisquick is an all-purpose baking mix that you can use to create pancakes, waffles, biscuits, muffins, and other baked goods. Save money by making pantry staples like this one at home!
I’ll admit it! I love Bisquick. I know I shouldn’t, but it is just so convenient and honestly, it doesn’t taste that bad.
With that said, the store-bought variety does have a lot of unnecessary ingredients. So, a few years ago, I set out to make my own homemade Bisquick.
It is so easy to make your own pantry staples. DIY Bisquick will last in your pantry for months.
I was shocked at how easy it really is to make my own all-purpose baking mix. The best part is, you are able to control the quality of the ingredients.
If you want 100% organic, you can make it that way. Or, a whole wheat version or gluten free version can be made as well.
It is so incredibly easy to make pantry staples like this at home, there really is no reason not to try it. Plus, who doesn’t like to save money?!
All you need to make this recipe for Bisquick are:
- all-purpose flour
- vegetable shortening
- baking powder
Talk about easy to make – this is a 5-minute recipe. Just combine everything together and store it in an airtight container.
Combining the shortening with the dry ingredients is easiest if you have a stand mixer or electric hand mixer. Or, if you have a large capacity food processor, you can use that. If so, just pulse the ingredients together 6 or 7 times.
Can I make this recipe gluten free?
If you want to make a gluten-free recipe for Bisquick, simply swap out the all-purpose flour for gluten free all purpose flour.
You need to use shortening because butter is not shelf-stable. As a result, the baking mix would need to be refrigerated.
