Does anyone have a recipe for making Bisquick?
Nicole from Chicago
Here is one, a very good one too, I might add.
Tried and true.
Combine flour, milk, baking powder, and salt in a very large bowl.
Cut in shortening until it resembles coarse cornmeal. Store in tightly
closed covered container in a cool place. Makes about 10 cups.
Small Batch Baking Mix
In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, cream of tartar, baking soda,
and dry milk powder. Stir with a whisk to blend.
Cut in shortening using a pastry blender or heavy-duty mixer. Seal and label.
Use within 10 to 12 weeks. Makes about 7 cups.
Use as you would for any Bisquick recipe.
Much cheaper to buy the generic mix.

I have been making this for 20+ years and it makes a a good supply and works wonderfully. I've also included some recipes to use.
Sift flour, then measure it and sift again with the baking powder, salt, and sugar. Sift the mixture twice. Add shortening, cut in, place in tightly covered container. (When it says cut in the shortening - I just take my electric mixer and use that to cut it in. When it looks like Bisquick, stop mixing.)

To make cinnamon buns, use the rich biscuit mixture. Roll dough to 1/3 inch thickness, spread with melted butter, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Roll up as for jelly roll. This roll can be wrapped in wax paper and stored in refrigerator for several hours. Cut when ready to bake in 1 inch slices. Bake 450 for 12 minutes. (07/20/2006)
