Homemade Bisquick Mix Recipe

Bisquick Substitute

Once you try this Bisquick substitute, you won't want to go back to the store bought version. I sure don't at least... and I'm guessing you won't either after you get a taste.

I've always enjoyed cooking from scratch, so I can't believe it never occurred to me just how simple it would be to make some of my own mixes to keep on hand for convenience! Plus I love that I can control exactly what goes into the mix -- no more label reading.

I used real butter for my homemade Bisquick substitute because I like the added richness that it imparts, but you could substitute vegetable shortening or lard to customize it to your own preferences.

Homemade Bisquick Mix

Yield: 6 cups

Homemade Bisquick Mix


  • 6 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 3 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter


  1. Measure the sifted flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Use a wire whisk to blend thoroughly.
  2. Cut in cold butter using a pastry cutter until thoroughly incorporated. Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 4 months.


Perhaps you're wondering just how well this homemade Bisquick mix will work in your traditional Bisquick recipes. I've successfully substituted it for store bought Bisquick in all of my favorite recipes, including these quick and delicious 15-minute homemade biscuits and this easy homemade shortcakes recipe.

What are your favorite homemade mixes to have on hand? I'm eager to try new varieties after being so successful with this one.
