    Cindy Lynn's Note:

    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!

      This is great Homemade Bisquick, Cindy Lynn! Very easy to mix up and it makes dandy pancakes! Love that it makes a whole lot. That way I won't run out for a day or two! Thanks a bunch for sharing. I appreciate it. Laudee C.

      I gave this recipe 5 stars. I helped make this in my cooking class today. This was great stuff! We made biscuits out of this mix. My copy of the recipe is slightly different. My copy calls for 8 cups flour, 1/4 cup baking powder, 3 tbl sugar, 1 1/3 cup powdered milk, and 3/4 cup shortening. The salt is the same. In my class we used 6 cups white flour and 2 cups whole wheat flour. We also used butter flavored crisco. My recipe reads that this makes 10 cups. This keeps for 3 months in the refrigerator. Variations: Whole Wheat mix - Use 4 cups white flour mixed with 4 cups whole wheat flour. Replace the shortening - use 3/4 cup butter or margarine and replace salt to 2 tsp. or use 2/3 cup canola oil. Overall this is a great recipe. It made the best light biscuits. Thanks for posting a great recipe. Christine (internetnut)
