Seems like one has been posted before... This category in the recipes section probably has what you are looking for.
Ah, this looks promising...
Quick Mix (Bisquick)
8&frac; cups flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. baking soda
&frac; cup instant dry milk
Whisk all together, then cut in with pastry cutter
2&frac; cups vegetabke shortening
A subscriber named Paula posted this (hello, Paula, and thank you!). I tried it and it works so well that I haven't bought Bisquick ever since. The only variation that I've implemented is to use half all purpose flour and half whole wheat, for health. Also, I have an old Bisquick recipe from the old box, that I keep in the plastic container, and use this recipe with this mix -- works every time.
8 cups flour (total)
1 1/4 cups nonfat dry milk powder
1/4 cup baking powder
1 Tablespoon salt
2 cups shortening
Combine flour, milk, baking powder, and salt in a very large bowl. Cut in shortening until it resembles cioarse cornmeal. Store in tighly closed covered container in a cool place. Makes about 10 cups.
I am new to this group and I am glad I found it. I have found some very helpful info in the group. I do have a question for the group and I hope someone can help me. Does anyone know how long homemade Bisquick Mix will last? I heard somewhere that it will last 2-3 months but I'm not sure. I usually make up double batches, so I won't run out so often. I just want to make sure that it's still good to use up to 3 months. I haven't noticed any difference in the way it taste or bakes. I store mine in a extra large plastic container that I bought at Walmart. I keep it in my kitchen closet on a shelf. It's to large to keep in the fridge. I would appreciate any help.

There seem to be a lot of different recipes for homemade bisquick online. I use the one that doesn't call for cream of tarter or powered milk. It works just as well to me and a lot cheaper to make. Especially for someone on a fixed income, like I am. I live in a small town and my store doesn't have cream of tarter anyway. I also don't have a pastry cutter so I just use my hands and they work just fine but it's a little messy. I will probably break down and buy a pastry cutter soon. If anyone wants the Bisquick Mix recipe that I use it's below.
Have a good evening all.

I would like to know the recipe for banana bread with Bisquick, please.
My mom and aunts were talking about very easy pie recipe found on a back of Bisquick box long time ago. Very simple I can't remember the exact name something like Nofuss Pie? It has coconut in it. You put all ingredient in a pan stir up and bake.
Can anyone help me out with this old recipe with this little information? Thanks
Ok, so, how much do you use at a time? Like your going to use it to make something tonight, how much do you use at a time? Jamish
This is the one I've been using with success for ages. It doesn't have artery clogging shortening. It makes a lot. I store some in my deep freeze.
9 c. all-purpose flour
3/4 c. Canola Oil
1 Tbsp. salt
1/4 c. baking powder
2 c. non-fat dry milk powder
Combine all ingredients and store in a covered container. Not necessary to refrigerate, but for long term storage you can freeze some.
Thank You for your wonderful site. I could not have successful made my dinner without this recipe. Much easy and cheaper than buying nasty boxed bisquick. Thank You.
I hope this is what you're looking for. It's absolutely amazing. Something like my favorite butterscotch brownies.
1 lb brown sugar
1 1/2 cup Bisquick
1 cup coconut
Bake at 325 for about 1 hour. Check after 45 mins. Check with a knife, and cake should coat knife but not be runny.
