Homemade Bisquick Biscuit Mix
I have tried several different quick mixes in the past that called for shortening in the recipe. I recently wanted to try making homemade Red Lobster biscuits and ran across this recipe that uses butter in the place of the shortening. I think I like this recipe better! It is definitely better tasting.
This mix can be used just like you would store-bought Bisquick mix. You can use it to make pancakes, muffins, biscuits, coffeecake, and more...in any recipe that calls for Bisquick.
I made several batches at once and placed them in a gallon sized Ziploc freezer bag to put in the freezer. You can't keep this mix in the pantry because of the butter added to the mix.
To make this homemade Bisquick mix, you will need:
- 5 cups flour
- 1/4 cup baking powder
- 2 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 cup butter
Mix dry ingredients together and then use a pastry blender or a fork to mix in the butter until the mixture is crumbly. Use immediately or place in a freezer safe container and freeze for up to 6 months.
You can find lots of recipes using Bisquick on the Betty Crocker web site.
