3 Ingredient EASY Homemade Bisquick Mix

Homemade Bisquick mix can be used to create a variety of recipes like pancakes, cheddar biscuits, waffles, quiche and so much more! This easy to make recipe will become a household staple after just one use.

You will never need to buy a box of Bisquick again with this easy to make version! In fact, I recommend making a double batch and keeping in sealed containers or mason jars so you always have some on hand!

Why homemade Biscuit Mix

Besides being a quick and cost effective option to the boxes you can buy at the supermarket, I always love to make my own biscuit mix so I know exactly what is going into it.

The nice thing with homemade bisquick is that it is so versatile (as I mentioned above) and can be used in so many recipes you are already making to help you save time. One of my favorite uses is as a dumpling mix when I make my Chicken and Dumplings. Gone are the days of scrambling for substitutions to your recipes when this kitchen staple is on hand.

I also use it to make my delicious Garlic Cheddar Biscuits as well as anytime we want to make a Quiche! You can even use it when making waffles, pancakes, pot pies and more.

That's great. I've never tried to make bisquick mix before, it would really helpful if you need to make it ahead of time.

I love this! I always buy bisquik but it's probably better to just make it!

It's always nice to have your own mixes in the pantry, whether it is a spice blend or a baking shortcut. People spend way too much money on premade things.

I couldn't agree more! We love having this on hand for so many of our weeknight dishes!

I had to look up Bisquick, I don't think it's very big here in Europe, although the packaging does look familiar, so it must be sold in our shops! I love the fact that you make your own, it would be so good as a foodie gift! Can you flavour it if giving as a gift, do you think?

Hi Azlin!! That is interesting, I guess it may be called something else over there (like how certain chocolate bars are different names too)! As for flavouring I guess it really depends on what you would be adding to it. If you are thinking of doing a foodie gift with it, maybe something fun like including some chocolate chips or a small container of maple syrup would be fun if you want to gift it as "premade pancakes".
