Bisquick Substitution

A lot of recipes call for Bisquick but this is not something I keep in my pantry.

For one, I just don’t care for the way it tastes and I never seem to have good luck using it. I surmise that because I do not use it often enough that the leavening agents expire – causing it to fail. Upon further investigation, I’ve also found that it Bisquick contains hydrogenated oil, which makes sense since it was originally developed to be a ready-made biscuit mix – the just add water variety.

There would need to be a fat included already in the mix. So what I needed was a Bisquick Substitution.

This Bisquick Substitution Mix will replace cup per cup of Bisquick, or equivalent product, in any recipe. I do not make it ahead of time, I simply prepare it as I need it.

As a rule, I prefer not to buy a box of something (anything) and having it sitting in my pantry right next to the very same ingredients I need to make it myself. It just seems absurd.

Maybe I am old-fashioned – and that’s okay. I cook mainly in the tradition my Mom, my Grandmother and my Aunts have all taught me – from scratch – and I’m proud of that.

That’s not to say I don’t take some shortcuts myself now and then, it’s just to say I try not to as often as possible.

  1. Recipe of ingredients is nice, but your nutrition information is very misleading. You show zero sodium and that simply is not true – 1 1/2 tsp of Baking Powder has about 732 mg of sodium and 1/4 tsp of salt has about 581 mg. of sodium. That amounts to 1,313 mg of sodium for your recipe – a serious problem for all those of us on restricted sodium diets.

    • Hi Joe,

      Looks like the whole nutritional value was missing, it also showed 0 carbs… I have fixed the calculations and it’s been updated to reflect per cup of mix. Keep in mind you’d have to eat an entire cup of it to consume those values. Thanks for letting me know that was miscalculated.
