When we make our homemade waffles, pancakes and biscuits I always reach for bisquick. Now with this easy recipe and staple pantry ingredients, I can easily make this at home. This homemade recipe makes my favorite breakfast recipes easier.

What is Bisquick?

It is a premade baking mix that you can use to make biscuits, dumplings and more. The mix has everything you need and is really handy.

However, it can really add up buying this at the store. Make it at home and save money! If stored properly the shelf life it about 3 months in the fridge.

Variations Ideas

  • Flour – We used all purpose flour in this recipe, but you can also self rising flour. If you go with this substitutions, then you will not need to add the leavening agent such as baking powder or baking soda.
  • Vegetable Shortening – You can substitute shortening for the butter.

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1 – You will need a large mixing bowl. Next, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.

Can I Mix with a Food Processor?

Yes, you can also use the Food Processor Method if you prefer.  Just add flour, baking powder and salt to food processor. Pulse to combine.

Add butter and pulse until mixture is coarse and resembles cornmeal. Transfer to airtight container and store in refrigerator for up to 3 months.

If you need a food processor, we like this food processor on Amazon. You could also use this mini food processor but it won’t get the ingredients as fine.

How to Use

You can use Homemade Bisquick Recipe to make coffee cakes, waffles, biscuits, dumplings, cobbler, cinnamon rolls, pancakes and more. Our favorite way to use bisquick is to make biscuits. Yum!

It is so easy and the biscuits turn out so light and fluffy!

  1. I do not have room in my refrigerator to store anything. Could I mix in everything but the butter and keep it shelf stable? Then when I make it cut in the butter and milk at the same time? It would still save me a lot of time this way as well.

  2. I just want to thank you for the recipe to use the mix to make biscuits, You are the first person I found that has done that.
