I found out is cheaper to buy a box of baking mix from Aldi for 99 cents. It is good size box and has two interior bags to keep it fresh longer. I dont use it constantly so this works out better for me. With the price of the individual ingredients lately, it is something to think about.

I agree I guess it depends on how much you use this if in the long run it's cheaper to buy than make anymore it's gotten to were it is almost cheaper to buy pre made on a lot of items. isn't that sad?

Here is a recipe I saved for "Master Mix" from Mary Hunt's Everyday Cheapskate website. You can substitute Master Mix for any recipe calling for Bisquick, substituting water for any milk required in the recipe and vice versa. I must admit though that I've never personally tried it.


5 pounds all-purpose flour

2-1/2 cups dry milk

3/4 cup double acting baking powder

2 tablespoons cream of tartar

3 tablespoons salt

1/2 cup sugar

4-2/3 cups solid vegetable shortening

Sift dry ingredients together. Cut in shortening until mix looks like cornmeal. Store at room temperature in Tupperware. Makes 30 cups.

8-1/2 cups all purpose flour,1Tablespoon baking powder,1 Tablespoon salt, 2 teaspoons cream of tartar, 1 teaspoon baking soda,1-1/2 cups nonfat dry milk and 2- 1/4 cups vegetable shortening.

In a large bowl sift all dry ingredients together. Blend well. With pastry blender, cut in shortening until evenly distributed.Mixture will resemble cornmeal in texture.Put in a large airtight container and label it. Store in a cool dry place. Use within 10 to 12 weeks. Makes about 13 cups. Use as you would Bisquick or Jiffy Mix.
