Homemade Bisquick

I'm making chicken pot pies today and my favorite recipe requires Bisquick (biscuit baking mix). Only problem is... I don't have any. So today I'm making my own biscuit baking mix.

What you need:
  • 4 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup powdered milk
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup butter
What you do:
Combine first 4 ingredients in a bowl.

Cut the butter into the flour with a pastry blender or fork. The mixture should look like crumbs.

Use as you would Bisquick or biscuit baking mix. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.










I love that this doesn't have the preservatives you'd find in the boxed stuff!

  6. Is there any way to 86 the powdered milk and just use regular milk whenever you have to make biscuits/pancakes/whatever? I only ask b/c I don't want to buy powdered milk but have everything else adn I need some more Bisquik!

    1. Mehgan- I'm sure you can use regular milk instead of the powdered. I think the amount of milk would change & I'm not sure what the right amount would be. Probably just add a little at a time to get the desired consistensy for what you're making.

      No water. This stuff can be treated just like boxed Bisquick. It's not like just add water pancake mix.

      For pancakes: 2 cups 'Bisquick',1 cup milk & 2 eggs
      For biscuits: 2 cups 'Bisquick', 2/3 cup milk

      thanks!!!

  10. Is there anyway to use powdered butter so that you don't have to store it in the fridge or freezer? Our fridge doesn't have much room!

    2. You can also switch it out for butter flavored shortening

    3. Try using solid coconut oil.

  14. Does this have an expiration date? or just look at the date on the ingredients used?

    1. Hi! My best guess would be 6-9 months in the freezer and expiration date on the butter if stored in the refrigerator. Thanks!

  15. Can we make this up minus the butter and then put it in when we are ready to use, that way we can store it outside of the fridge?

  18. I've seen some use Molly McButter in place of dehydrated butter when making dry mixes. Does anyone think this would/wouldn't work in this recipe?
