The Master Mix (Homemade Bisquick Substitute)

Total Time

This recipe is in response to a discussion on the boards about Bisquick. Bisquick is apparently not available in the country where the originator of the thread lives. I prefer to use this in recipes that call for 'Bisquick' rather than purchase it, myself. If stored in the freezer, this will keep for several months. I hope you find this as handy as I do, since I could never keep 'Bisquick' on hand before. If I recall correctly, I think this came from one of my Make a Mix Cookery cookbooks.
