This is a guest post from Brandi, one of our staff members. This is an easy recipe to make and keep on hand, it's not just frugal but convenient too.

I am trying to make the switch from buying some of my kitchen staples to making them. This week I am going to share a homemade version of Bisquick.  I have doubled this recipe without a problem. 

Homemade Master Baking Mix

Ingredients:

2 cups Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Butter, you want this between cold and fully softened (you can half the butter for a lower fat version)

Here we have a few options as to mixing it all together:

 

Food Processor – Pulse it a lot in food processor to blend it completely, like the real thing.

Heavy Duty Mixer – I do not have a food processor so I use this method.  Just mix it all together with either the whisk or paddle attachment.

By Hand – I also use this method.  If you do not have a food processor or a heavy duty stand mixer, this method is fine.  Just mix all ingredients together with a whisk or pastry cutter.

 

I use both the Mixer method and also mix by hand with a whisk after I have mixed it in the mixer. Store this mix in an air-tight container, or zip top bag, in your fridge or freezer.


Thanks, Brandi!
