Copycat Bisquick Baking Mix Recipe

You’ll Need:
8 cups all purpose flour
4 Tbs. Sugar
4 Tbs. baking powder
4 teaspoons salt
1 cup shortening

Combine flour, baking powder, salt in a large bowl, blending well. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles fine crumbs and is completely incorporated. Store in an airtight container until needed.

Yield: Makes approximately 9 cups (About the Equivalent of a 40 oz Box)

Copycat Bisquick Baking Mix without Shortening

If you love the idea of making your own homemade Bisquick style mix, but you don’t want to use shortening, you can use butter instead. I recommend using real butter, not margarine (which is mostly filler oils!)
You’ll Need
5 cups flour
1/4 cup baking powder
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 cup butter (not-salted)

Mix together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Cut in butter until the mixture is crumbly. I generally freeze this in vacuum seal or sandwich bags. It should be, at the very least, stored in the refrigerator.

To Make Biscuits Using Homemade Bisquick Mix

Use 2 1/4 c. Mix
3/4 Cup of Milk

  1. Mix until it forms a soft dough, roll it or pat it out on a Silpat or lightly floured surface, cut out with a floured biscuit cutter.
  2. If you’d rather make drop biscuits (which don’t require rolling/cutting) increase milk to 1 cup and drop large spoonfuls of dough onto a Silpat or non-stick baking sheet.
  3. Bake at 400°F for 8-10 minutes.
    1. To Make the BEST Pancakes:

      1 c. Mix
      3/4 c. Milk
      1 Egg
      2 Tbs Canola Oil

      1. In a medium bowl combine the mix with milk, egg, and oil, mixing lightly until all the ingredients are combined, but don’t overmix as this can make the pancakes tough.
      2. Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium heat, add a dollop of butter to the pan, once the butter is sizzling pour the batter onto the hot griddle.To ensure even pancakes pour the batter into one spot.
      3. Cook until bubbles form over the surface, flip once to brown the other side evenly.
