Making the Perfect Copycat Bisquick Baking Mix

If there is one thing that I hate as far as grocery shopping, it would be spending extra money on products that I could already have made with the ingrefdients that I already had in my house—such as Bisquick and many spice blends.

 

There are a ton of recipes out there that require this Bisquick or Jiffy Baking Mix, but I am slowly becoming a minimalist…and that’s just one more thing that I will have to buy at the grocery store nnd store in my pantry.

And making your own  baking mix means one less processed food with  chemical stabilizers added so that the products stays safe while being stored in your pantry for who knows how long.

 

 

The perfect copycat Bisquick mix is simple to make…and in fact only contains four ingredient s….and actually comes together in less than five minutes….and is the perfect shortcut for making such awesome breakfasts as pancakes, biscuits, and so forth….and will stay good for up to three months as long as you refrigerate it.

********************

The Ingredients

  • 6C flour
  • 3Tbesp baking powder
  • 2tsp salt
  • 1C vegetable shortening

 

 

****************

The Process

Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl.

Cut the shortening into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender until combined. The mixture should resemble fine crumbs and no large pieces of shortening should remain.Bits of shortening should still be visible within the baking mix…but should be about the size of a pea.

Store in a a covered glass or plastic container in the refrigerator for up to three months.
