Homemade Bisquick Mix Recipe

Once you try this homemade Bisquick recipe, 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 ingredients go into the mix — no more label reading.

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

Perhaps you’re wondering just how well this homemade Bisquick recipe 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.

Is there an organic wheat version, that does not include enriched wheat? Health restricts reduced iron/enriched wheat. I'm hoping there is - have been searching for awhile. Thank you.

Are you looking for a prepackaged mix with these qualities? I'm not sure if there's one available, but it seems like you could try substituting this flour in the recipe I've provided.

Your website used to show the comments - I've tried on two different browsers (IE and Chrome) and can't see them. All I get is the option to add my own comment, so I am. Looking for the previous comment you provided on how to use this homemade bisquick to make waffles. I love this recipe and lost my notes on how to make waffles. Can you please provide??

Sorry about that, Kate! A software update caused a glitch with the comments on my site, and I need to find someone to fix it. To make waffle batter, use 2 cups of the homemade Bisquick mix, 1 1/3 cups milk, 1 egg, and 2 tablespoons of your favorite oil (vegetable, coconut, etc.) or butter. This should make about 12 waffles.

There is only one picture that I can see (except for the ads) and it is loading fine for me on my pc

My husband was sure this was bisquick, that is the best proof that they are identical. Thanks for this recipe I will use it often.

Hi all, I am so happy to find this recipe. I live in Thailand so many ingredients and most prepared mixtures are not available and since I enjoy eating European food occasionally have had to start cooking and baking. Fortunately I enjoy the challenge since recipes from scratch are a must. My first attempt with the mix, Mini Meat Loaves, which all the family enjoyed. A cross-culture success, thanks Tara.
