This is great! Keep it sealed in a large glass jar in my pantry. For those who don't know what to do with it, you use it as a substitute for Bisquick. That's what it's for. If you don't know what Bisquick is or how to use it, visit the Betty Crocker website and look up Bisquick recipes. Not sure, but if you didn't know what to do with the recipe, why would you even look it up? :-) Read More

I will never buy Bisquick ever again. I realized making a casserole I didn't have any on hand...came right to this recipe and threw it together with everything I had on hand. The casserole turned out excellent and then threw out some bisquits with it and they rose wonderfully! What a fast recipe to make up in a pinch!...Cost wise excellent and makes way more then you can purchase it in the store. TY! Enjoyed the results that followed! Read More

Great substitute! I altered the recipe a little as I did not have dry milk powder on hand. This is what I did: 6 cups all-purpose flour, 3 tablespoons baking powder, 1 tablespoon salt, 3/4 cup shortening Read More

You will never have to buy Bisquick again, with all of those preservatives. I did not add the dry milk. When I was ready to make biscuits, I used 2 cups of the mix, and 3/4 cup of buttermilk, made with Saco. This made 6 nice sized biscuits. Some of you were wanting to know. This worked well for me. They were delicious biscuits. Thank you fayyr for sharing your recipe. Read More

Homemade baking mixes, like this one, are a great shortcut for busy cooks. All the flavor and convenience of Bisquick with none of the preservatives. For the two users who gave the recipe a lower rating because you don't know what to do with it: use it as a substitute for any recipe that calls for Bisquick. Read More

I scaled back the recipe to make 3 cups of this mixture to make 'Beer Muffins' from AR. It worked fantastic. Really no need to buy a pre-mix anymore. To make 3 cups: 2 1/2 c. + 2 TB flour; 1/4 c. + 2 t. dry milk; 1 TB + 1 1/4 t. baking powder; 1 TB + 1/2 t. sugar; 1 t. salt; 1/4 c. + 2 t. shortening Read More
