Bisquick is a ready-made flour mix introduced by General Mills in 1931. It is used to create a variety of sweet and savoury foods, including biscuits, pizzas, pancakes, scones and muffins. If you run out of Bisquick, you can easily combine a few ingredients to prepare a homemade version. Homemade Bisquick mix is devoid of any chemical preservatives and also saves you money. Use the homemade Bisquick substitute in recipes just as you would the ready-made version.
