Recipe for Making Bisquick

Here is one, a very good one too, I might add.
Tried and true.


  • 8 cups flour
  • 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 coarse cornmeal. Store in tightly
closed covered container in a cool place. Makes about 10 cups.

Much cheaper to buy the generic mix.


Piggly Wiggly has a good food club mix. (07/19/2006)

Recipe for Making Bisquick

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.

  • 12 cups flour
  • 6 tbls baking powder
  • 3 tbsp salt
  • 4 1/2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups shortening

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.)


2 cups biscuit mix; 1/2 cups milk. Bake 450 for about 12 minutes.


2 cups biscuit mix; 1 egg; 1/2 cup milk. Beat the egg and add to the milk. Add liquid to mix, stir until thoroughly blended. Roll and cut. Bake 450 about 12 minutes.



2 cups biscuit mix; 2 eggs; 1 1/3 cups milk. Beat eggs well and add to milk. Add to dry ingredients, beat until thoroughly mixed.


2 cups biscuit mix; 3 tbsp sugar; 1 egg; 1 cup milk. Beat eggs slightly, add milk, then sugar, then combine with biscuit mixture, mixing until liquid ingredients are just blended into dry. Half fill greased muffin tins and bake 400 for about 20 minutes.


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)

Recipe for Making Bisquick

Witty/Eliz. Schneider Colchie, prints:

  • 4 1/2 C all purpose flour

  • 5 tsps baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

(Store dry ingredients premixed in tight bag for up to 6 months.) When ready to use, for 3 batches of whatever (scant 2 cups each):

  1. In a bowl, add mix above with 5 Tblsp solid vegetable shortening and 3 Tblsp unsalted butter, cut
    into tiny pieces, and blend with fingertips, a
    pastry blender or electric mixer until
    shortening/butter is no longer visible.
  2. Divide this total mixture evenly into 3 airtight
    containers, if not using immediately. Close and refrigerate for up to a month.
Use this just like Bisquick for biscuits, coffee cake, sortcake, and bread recipes. (07/22/2006)
