Over the past year, I've tried little by little to make our meals and snacks from scratch as often as I can and to purchase fewer prepackaged or convenience items. One of the things that I've been wanting to eliminate is the use of Bisquick. I use it for biscuits, pancakes, shortcakes and we love this cheeseburger pie too! There are lots of versions of the homemade mix out there, but I finally found one I thought would be good and so far I've had good results. It was super easy to make and is easily stored in the fridge. The biscuits I made were way better than the Bisquick version and today I even made a chocolate cake with this mix.
The biscuits were fabulous!
Can't wait to try to this chocolate-cinnamon sundae cake tonight! If it tastes as good as it smells, I'll be sharing that recipe soon!
Homemade Baking Mix
Source: Food Fanatic
6 cups all-purpose flour
3 T. baking powder
1 1/2 t. baking soda
1 T. salt
3 T. sugar
1 1/2 sticks butter, unsalted cut into small cubes (I used salted because that's what I had on hand- worked fine.)
Whisk dry ingredients in mixing bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture using a pastry blender until you have coarse crumbs. Be sure there are no big pieces of butter remaining. Store mixture in airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two months.
