Baking Mix- Bisquick Copycat

I’m big on making everything from scratch but Bisquick is so convenient. This is a recipe for shelf stable Bisquick replacement without any preservatives or additives.  You can use it in the same proportions as Bisquick. Hope you enjoy!

Baking Mix


  • 5 cups Flour
  • 1/4 cup Baking Powder
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Shortening (You can substitute shortening for Butter but you will have to store it in the refrigerator.)


1. In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. *I like to do this step in my stand mixer.
2. Store in an airtight container for up to 6 weeks.

For Biscuits

  1. Mix together ⅓ cup of milk for every 1 cup of mix. Drop onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake @ 450ºF for 10-12 min.
  2. Add any additional ingredients you wish such as cheese or herbs before adding the milk.
  3. 1 cup of mix will yield about 6 biscuits.

For Pancakes or Waffles:

  1. Mix 2 cups of mix with 1 cup milk and 2 eggs.
