It takes just minutes to make, is cheaper than buying the Bisquick brand and it doesn’t have any ingredients that you don’t recognize or can’t pronounce.

On top of all that, we actually like the things I make with this homemade mix better than when I made them with the Bisquick brand! Definitely a win all around!

    When we make these biscuits, how long and what temperature?


    • Lydia Beiler

      Just to be clear, this is a baking mix that can be used for making biscuits, pancakes and more. You can use it like you would store bought Bisquick mix. (In case you are located outside the US, Bisquick is the name of a brand that sells baking mixes.)

      If you want to use it to make biscuits, you can mix together 2 1/4 c. Homemade Bisquick mix and 2/3 c. milk. Drop the dough by spoonfuls onto a greased baking sheet and bake at 450 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until they are lightly brown. I hope that helps!

    Can this mix be frozen?


    • Lydia Beiler

      Yes! I have frozen it often.


      • Robin

        I love this recipe! I make it with butter and freeze the mix. Everything turns out perfectly. I do mix it in my food processor. Starting with 3 cups of flour and remaining ingredients, blitz until butter is well incorporated then add remaining flour and blitz again. Easy and fun! I’ve made dumplings, biscuits and pancakes so far. I’m looking forward to making the coffee cake!!


        • Lydia Beiler

          Thank you for sharing this, Robin! Yes, a food processor would work well, I’m sure. Can you believe I only have a very small one (like 2 cups in size)? I’m so happy to hear that you are loving the recipe. I’m curious, are you using the mix directly from the freezer? I’ve thought of trying that but never have. If it works, it would be super handy!

    How long can you store this for?


    • Lydia Beiler

      It can be stored as long as the shortest expiration date of the ingredients. So if your baking powder has the soonest expiration date, that is the one that you would use.


  4. Diane Crotty

    How long will it last either in the fridge or the cupboard?


    • Lydia Beiler

      It can be stored as long as the shortest expiration date of the ingredients. So if your baking powder has the soonest expiration date, that is the one that you would use.

    I need to make this to have on hand for dinners. Winter prep is in full swing.


    • Lydia Beiler

      It’s so easy to mix up!
