Homemade Bisquick Mix Recipe – Make Your Own!

It’s convenient to have a box of Bisquick handy to make a quick batch of biscuits, pancakes, waffles, etc.  But, you can still have that convenience and spend LESS money by making your own mix!  It only takes a few minutes to make the original mix (this recipe makes 12 1/2 cups) and then using it is just as quick and easy as using the Bisquick.

10 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
4 tsp. salt
2 cups shortening

Mix first four ingredients in a large bowl (whisking well). With two forks, or a pastry cutter if you have one, cut the shortening into the mixture until it forms coarse crumbs. Mix can be stored in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

GIFT IDEA:  Mix up a batch of this and pack in a jar with a bow to give a special homemade gift to your friends or family.  Attach a card with ideas for use.
