This a good master mix to use in place of Bisquick and saves money to boot.
Whisk together all of the dry ingredients. Place half of the dry mixture and half of the shortening into a food process. Process until combined. Repeat for second half of ingredients. Combine both batches in a big bowl and work with your hands, breaking up any larger pieces.
Store in a covered container and use within a month. To measure, use the same scoop and level method you would use with regular flour.
Note: In hot weather, especially if your kitchen is not air conditioned, mix should be kept in the refrigerator.

I must have at least a half dozen of these homemade mixes, and I've found them all to be just as much like Bisquick as is possible. My kids enjoy making their own pancakes when they're home, and this is a good and fast way to get the job done. I've never been one to use very many boxed mixes, but I do like making my own. Much, much cheaper for sure.
Thank you for sharing yours with us.
This one makes a smaller batch:
1 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon Crisco
Mix dry ingredients together, then using a pastry knife cut the Crisco into the mix. Makes 1 cup Bisquick equivalent.
