When I took cooking in high school, we got a recipe for homemade "Bisquick". It worked really well. But, high school was a long time ago and I don't have that recipe anymore. Does anyone have a tried and true recipe to make a copycat Bisquick? I tried searching the web for one a few years ago. I found one that looked reasonable, but it really didn't work.
 
Someone posted a baking mix recipe here on DC a number of years ago. I'm on my phone right now, otherwise I would look. It's easier for me to do some things on my laptop.
 
I believe Bisquick has dehydrated oil/lard by the way it settles in its package and you only need water to make a miracle biscuit.
 
One cup of Bisquick can be substituted:
1 cup of flour
1+1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
1⁄2 teaspoon of salt
2+1⁄2 tablespoons of oil or melted butter (or by cutting in 2+1⁄2 tbsp Crisco or lard).

I can't remember where I saw this posted. But I copied it because I don't always have Bisquick available when I want it.

There are many versions available and they are all very similar.

Here is one example.

5 cups flour​

2 teaspoons salt​

3 tablespoons baking powder​

1 cup shortening​

Add all ingredients to large bowl.​

Cut in shortening with pastry blender until combined and no large pieces of shortening remain.​

Store in airtight container in pantry.​


If your recipe calls for buttermilk, applesauce, mashed bananas, etc, you will need to add baking soda.

I tried using baking mix many years ago and abandoned it because everything I made had the same taste and texture.

I do think that it could be helpful and less expensive if you are doing quantity cooking.

This is almost exactly a one sixth scale down of the one GG shared a few years ago and that I found yesterday. The only difference is that the fat scales down to 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons.

BTW, thank you @GotGarlic.
