The Master Mix (Homemade Bisquick Substitute)

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by Cindy Lynn

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.

Cindy Lynn, thank you, thank you, thank you! Bisquick is occasionally available in my country, but it's dairy (and expensive)! Lots of time I need the mix, but a non-dairy version. Thanks to you I can now make this with soy milk powder, and it works like a dream! This recipe is the closest clone I have seen so far, and I am already on my second batch! Impossible Hamburger Pie, here I come!
