I see in a lot of recipes they use Bisquick. What is it?
By Marlene 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!

I love your site, but get a bit confused with the names of some USA products. Could you please tell me what Bisquick is?
