Doing More Cooking From Scratch ~ Bisquick Mix

Last year I did some items in the kitchen from scratch and I have to say that I really enjoyed doing them.  I now find that they are easy to do, better for us and cost so much less than buying the pre-made items at the store.  One that I do often is homemade Bisquick.  I don't remember where I found the recipe so I can't give credit to the right person.  I did try to search for it again but couldn't find it.  But through my research to find it I came upon a FANTASTIC site!  It's Simple Bites.  Their post Eat Well, Spend Less: Homemade Substitutes for Grocery Staples has me jumping for joy.  I can't wait to get started on making some more staples for my kitchen/pantry.  They do have one very good word of advice.  Don't try to do it all at once.  Start with a few and once you have those down start adding to what you do.

Here's the recipe that I've been using.  Sorry there are no pictures to share with you of the delicious foods that I've made with this mix...but by the time I remember everything has been eaten.  They taste so much better!  It's amazing how taking out all those preservatives can make such a HUGE difference.

Homemade Bisquick Mix


  • 6 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • 3 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter


Measure the sifted flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl. Use a wire whisk to blend thoroughly.
Cut in cold butter using a pastry cutter until thoroughly incorporated.

Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 4 months or freezer for up to 6 months.

Simple Bites is my go-to site for made from scratch recipes! I've never done the from scratch bisquick because I never knew the proportions of flour to baking powder and salt. Surprisingly, I never thought to even look it up. Thanks for sharing it!
