Description

It’s 11 pm and you have a hankering for pancakes, waffles, biscuits, coffeecake, whatever, and you are out of Bisqui … your favorite baking mix.

What to do??? All in a tizzy?

Well, fret no more, my friends. Noshings is here to save the day!

Ingredients

  • 6 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 3 Tablespoons Baking Powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Baking Soda
  • 3 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Salt
  • 1 cup Vegetable Shortening

Preparation

1. Sift all your dry ingredients into a mixer bowl.
2. Add shortening and mix with a whisk attachment or hand mixer until thoroughly incorporated.

It should be a very fine meal with no lumps.

I like to keep this in a large tupperware container in the fridge. Use it just like you would Bisqui … your favorite baking mix!

Thank you for posting this one. I just refuse to buy
Bisquick when I can make this ahead and store it.
Thanks from a “saver” on food.

I’ve made this a few times and love it! At first I used it in a pinch, then I just stopped buying the pre-made stuff. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

hi sillygolucky
I think you can, but the resulting texture will be softer and you’ll def. have to keep it in the frig.
Also, it won’t stay fresh for as long as the mix made with shortening.
thanks all, enjoy!

Love this! It is a staple in our home. I usually mix half wholewheat flour with the all purpose, and sometimes even use buckwheat or other flours in the mix. It keeps really well and I actually make a double batch these days as we get through it so quickly! Thank you!
