How to Substitute Bisquick

Updated April 17, 2017

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.

  1. Measure 5 cups of all-purpose flour in a large mixing bowl to prepare 6 cups of Bisquick substitute. Add 1/4 cup baking powder, 1 tsp salt and 2 tbsp sugar. Use a wire whisk to combine all the ingredients and mix well.

  2. Add 1 cup of cold butter or margarine. Use a pastry cutter to blend the butter well with the other dry ingredients. Mix until the mixture attains a crumbly texture.

  3. Use as required or store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to 6 weeks. Refrigerate the Bisquick substitute for longer storage, up to 4 months.

  4. Tip

    2 cups of homemade Bisquick substitute will yield 12 medium-sized biscuits. Combine 2 cups of Bisquick substitute with 1 cup milk and 2 eggs to easily prepare pancakes.
