What Is Bisquick Baking Mix?

Bisquick is a baking mix introduced by Betty Crocker, a brand of General Mills, in 1930. The original product came to fruition when a top-tier sales executive of General Mills met a dining car chef who made extraordinarily delicious biscuits.

The chef revealed that the secret behind those fresh biscuits was his premixed biscuit batter. Impressed by this simple yet tasty recipe, the executive “invented” Bisquick baking mix right after his business trip.

Flour, leavening agent, fat, salt, and sugar are the core components found in a package of Bisquick. Since these ingredients are all widely available, it’s not that hard to make this baking mix at home so you can create several Bisquick dishes you like.

For example, you can make a perfect Bisquick strawberry shortcake from scratch. So let’s see how to create a bisquick baking mix right now!

Here are a couple of tips you should know to make and store your baking mix effectively.

  • Besides mixing the ingredients manually, you can also use a food processor to save time.
  • Don’t keep your Bisquick mix at room temperature for too long. Since it doesn’t contain any additives, the homemade mix will go rancid rather quickly.
  • Store the baking mix in an airtight container and refrigerate it for up to 3 months.
  • Melted butter is a viable alternative to cold ones. If you want to use melted butter, try your best to distribute it evenly.
