Homemade Bisquick Mix

Share for the love of FOOD!

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!


I 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. It is less expensive than the store bought mix and comes together in no time…your welcome!

You will never need to buy a box of Bisquick again with this easy to make version! Use for biscuits, quiche, pot pies, pancakes and more!

  • 6 c Flour all purpose
  • 3 tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tbsp Salt
  • 1 c Shortening Crisco


  • Put all ingredients into a stand mixer and mix on low speed using the whisk attachment until it comes together.
  • It will look like flour with small pea-size pieces of coated shortening (that is perfect!)
  • Store in an airtight container or mason jars for up to 6 months (although I bet you will go through it faster!)


Use in place of any recipe that calls for Bisquick! We use it in biscuits, pancakes, waffles, pot pies, quiche etc!

        Hi Deanna!! It is a vegetable base that is made with soybeans, however I do believe they have versions that are made with coconut oil if that is something you would prefer. I have not seen an olive oil version before…hope this helps!

      That is why I wanted to share it, I often found myself with crumbles left in my Bisquick box and thought “there has to be a way!” ha!

    This is seriously such a simple and easy recipe to assemble!..and we can make it in a jiffy instead of thinking we should only buy premixes!..thanks for sharing this useful post..

    Thanks for sharing this one… I’ve been thinking I need to find a mix I can use instead of the store bought box. I don’t use it enough to justify that box sitting on my shelf and being able to mix up a smaller batch would be handy.

    This. Is. Fantastic! Lifesaving recipe for me. Really comes in helpful for biscuits and pancakes. I would even use this in my Sausage ball recipe. Love!

      I have not tried it Catherine, but I think it would be just as good! Let me know if you mix up a batch so I can share an edit! 🙂

    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?

    • oliveblogger says:

      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”.
