Homemade Bisquick from scratch ingredients

If you have these four items, you have homemade Bisquick:

  • Flour
  • Baking Powder
  • Salt
  • Butter

Add all the dry ingredients to a bowl or food processor and then the cold cubed butter.

Homemade Bisquick Mix in bowl

Using a fork or pastry blender if you have one, cut the butter into your dry ingredients in the bowl.

If using a food processor, pulse until combined.

Homemade Bisquick Mixed up

When you are done, either start baking or store your mix in an airtight container.

You can keep your unused Bisquick from scratch in the refrigerator for up to 3 months, but if you are like me it will never last that long!

What Can You make with Bisquick?

We love pancakes in this family and have never been led astray with the classic ultimate pancakes recipe from the back of the box.

I actually cut out that panel and taped it inside our cabinet so the kids can follow it. My 12 year old loves making pancakes!

I also use it for this super delicious and easy baked burrito casserole.
