Bisquick is a great pantry staple because it reduces the number of ingredients you need for a recipe. This homemade bisquick is a baking mix made up of flour, baking powder, salt, and shortening.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt.
Next, add the shortening to the dry ingredients.
What are some substitutions for the shortening?
I chose shortening when making this recipe because of the shelf-life. For a substitution, you could use vegetable oil.
Another option is to use butter instead of shortening. When using butter to make homemade bisquick, it needs to be used immediately or stored in an airtight container in the fridge.
Finally, cut in the shortening until crumbly.
Can I make this baking mix in a food processor?
Yes, you can make this recipe in a food processor. Pulse the flour, baking powder, and salt. Finally, add the shortening and pulse until crumbly.
Transfer the homemade bisquick into an airtight storage container or ziptop bag.
How should homemade bisquick be stored?
Store the homemade bisquick copycat in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. To store for a longer period of time, place it in the refrigerator or freezer.
