That’s it! Just 1 simple step!

Store in an airtight container for up to 6 weeks.

If you use butter, baking mix needs to be stored in the fridge or freezer so that the butter won’t go rancid. If using shortening, it can be stored in a cool, dry place.

I usually do about 3 batches of this recipe at once.

HOW DO I STORE HOMEMADE BISQUICK?

Store it in an airtight container, like Tupperware, a mason jar with lid & ring, or an airtight plastic or glass container made for storing dry ingredients.

CAN YOU FREEZE HOMEMADE BISQUICK?

Yes, you can freeze homemade Bisquick in an airtight container for up to 2 years. Be sure to bring the quantity you need back to room temperature before using it.

WHAT IS BISQUICK MADE FROM?

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 egg white beaten to fluff

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Stir all ingredients until blended.
  2. Pour batter onto a heated greased waffle maker.

What if I don’t have a Kitchenaid mixer?

A food processor or hand-held mixer works great. For a low-tech method, mix everything by hand using a pastry blender, wire whisk or even a fork.

If you’re hand-mixing the ingredients, I recommend measuring everything out, then sifting it together a couple of times before adding the shortening/butter.

PRO TIPS/RECIPE NOTES

Storing. If you’re short on fridge space and using shortening, you can store homemade Bisquick it in a cool, dry place for up to 6 weeks. If you make it with butter, you definitely need to store your homemade Bisquick in the fridge – non-negotiable!

Portions. Rather than constantly reopening the container of frozen Bisquick every time you need some, portion it out and freeze it in separate containers. Treat your freezer like a vault, not a pantry.

Substitute. If you don’t want to use butter or shortening, you can also use lard in this recipe.

Triple it. I usually do about 3 batches of this recipe at once.
