I see in a lot of recipes they use Bisquick. What is it?
By Snazzy from Pretoria, South Africa
Bisquick is a trade name of a product that is the dry ingredents for basic baking. If you mix certain wet ingredients (eggs, milk, butter) you get bisquits, other wet ingredents will result in pancakes or waffles.
A biscuit mix for making biscuits or pancakes. In US is on the baking aisle in grocery stores
Take a look at this link & a picture is worth a thousand words:
I am not sure that pancakes & biscuts mean exactly the same thing down your way. By the way, Betty Crocker is a ficticious entity created by some advertising agency many years ago. A great product, use it a lot myself!
A multi purpose baking product, you can make your own with recipes off the internet really easy.
And a very handy staple to have in your pantry. The home made mixes are as good, but probably not as shelf stable because of no preservatives. I would store mine in the refrigerator I think.
biscuits, scones, coffee cakes , quick nut breads, "cobblers" ( quick fruit baked dessert) , fast pies and quiches using a blender , dumplings for stew, drop cookies. Haven't made anything rolled out in 50 years...nor sure if I could.
Just about any baked good that uses flour, non liquid fat, baking powder as a base-- you then add the other requirements of the receipe. For savings I used dry milk for years in lieu of fluid-- other dried ingredients ( eggs for instance) can also be used.
