I love making things from scratch, even the convenience things. I enjoy making things a little healthier and cheaper. I found a recipe here that I liked and that I’ve tweaked as I’ve used it. It was easy and worked great so why not keep making it.
I like using Bisquick because it is great for so many things. Pancakes on Saturday mornings, of course. Tasty cheesy-garlic biscuits with dinner. Sweet. A favorite baked egg recipe from my childhood, awesome! Using my homemade Bisquick in all three. Seriously cool!
So over the next few posts I will post recipes for all of the above. Super sweet! Let’s start.
Homemade Bisquick Mix
3 cups whole wheat flour
3 cups white flour
3 Tbsp baking powder
1 Tbsp salt
1 cup shortening
Sift flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl. Using a pastry blender, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Store in an airtight container.
So now you have the basic mix. Pretty easy, right? And a heck of a lot cheaper than the real stuff. So here’s the bonus recipe for the day.
Super Fast Blueberry Pancakes
2 cups Bisquick mix
1 cup milk
1 cup fresh blueberries
Stir ingredients until blended. Add blueberries and gently fold in.
Pour slightly less than 1/4 cupfuls onto hot greased griddle.
Cook and enjoy!
