Homemade Baking Mix

Here’s where I introduce you to my little homemade Bisquick mix. I was pretty desperate for something easier when I was pregnant. I was exhausted and feeding two little corn allergic kids (aka absolutely nothing store-bought or out to eat ever) and needed something easy. I had never cooked with Bisquick pre-real food/corn allergies so I had no idea how convenient this could be, but it is convenient to be able to pull out of your freezer any time. So whether you are used to the convenience of Bisquick and need a replacement to ease into real foods or you have never used Bisquick a day in your life I highly recommend giving this a try!


I’ll be sharing some recipes over the next couple of weeks using this, but in general you should be able to use it in your “bisquick” recipe.

Adapted from Heavenly Homemakers.

10 Cup Whole Wheat Flour (I use a white wheat)

1/8 cup baking soda

1/4 cup cream of tartar

2 tspn salt

1 cup butter (softened)*

1 cup palm shortening*

**You can use all palm shortening or all butter or sub coconut oil for this.

Mix all the dry ingredients well (it’s 10 cups of flour so it requires heavy mixing). Add in butter and palm shortening and mix in well. You don’t want any pieces larger than a pea size, like when making biscuits. It should be nice and crumbly. Store in a gallon ziploc bag in the freezer and pull out as needed.

I’ll share a sausage ball recipe using this on Friday!
