Homestead Series Make Your Own Bisquick Mix

This post may contain affiliate links, my full disclosure can be read here.

Making your own premade mixes are healthy and convenient.  They also save a lot of money from buying them ready made.  I like knowing what is IN my food and how it was made.  Making my own mixes helps to make meals quickly, conveniently and healthy!

Baking Mix

  • 8 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered milk (optional)
  • 1 Tbs salt
  • 1 1/2 cups lard (or shortening, butter)

Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Using a pastry blender cut in lard until it’s well mixed.

If you prefer to leave out the powdered milk, you can substitute the water in your recipe for milk, rice milk or other alternative.  Use in any biskwick recipe.
