Tasty Tuesday: Homemade Bisquick

I'm always looking for ways to save and also to eat healthier. So when I came across this recipe for Homemade Bisquick I was pretty excited. Not only is it cheaper than buying Bisquick it is also much healthier because the homemade version has no partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, which I really like to avoid. And you couldn't ask for an easier thing to make! It literally just takes minutes.

On top of all that, we actually liked how the things I made with this turned out better than when I made them with Bisquick mix! I've used it now for several different things and they all turned out more delicious than usual. Can you tell I'm sold? :)

Here are two of our favorite quiche recipes using Bisquick- Zucchini Quiche and Crustless Bacon and Egg Quiche,

Okay, so on to the recipe!

Homemade Bisquick
5 c. flour (you could use half whole wheat flour)
1/4 c. baking powder
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 c. shortening (I use butter)

Mix dry ingredients together then cut in butter until crumbly. Store in refrigerator** and use as you would Bisquick.

Yields: A little over 6 cups

** If you don't use butter or margarine for this recipe, but instead use vegetable shortening, you could store at room temperature.

  1. I don't think the store bought Bisquick is stored in the refrigerator. At least I never did. :) Thanks for the recipe. Its nice to be able to make stuff like this from scratch!

  2. Yes! I too make my own, and it keeps nicely in the fridge. Good for you!

  3. O, this is, indeed, amazing. I love this idea so much, may I put your recipe on my sidebar, with a link back to you?
    I think a lot of people would dearly LOVE this.

  4. Rachal, I don't store my store-bought Bisquick in the fridge either. However I do this since I make it with butter. I'm glad you mentioned it though- I added a note to the post above. :)

  5. Fantastic idea! Thanks for sharing.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)
