Reviews for Biscuit Baking Mix
"I was in the middle of making an impossibly easy pie when I discovered I was out of baking mix. Taste of Home to the rescue! I really only needed one cup, so I cut the recipe in half. I threw all the ingredients into a food processor with the dough blade and just let it run until everything was mixed well. It worked perfectly and saved my dinner. I used the leftover mix for pancakes in the morning. Saying goodbye to the store-bought stuff!"
"This was extremely easy to make and really tastes like the store bought mix! Iadequate pancakes with it this morning & the kids gobbled them up!"
"I tried this mix out and it was awesome. I plan to make several batches and give them out with several recipes in a pretty glass jar. Thank you so much Tami..."
"I make this with whole wheat pastry flour. Works great."
"It worked so I was happy! I still need to play around with it to perfect ratio for biscuits."
"this is a very old recipe/idea. this is one of the first thing i was taught by my grandmother when I was a child. but for those that are learning how to cook its a good idea"
"Great alternative to store-bought...and quick enough to mix up in a pinch if you "need" it for another recipe. I usually make mine in a food processor, but it's not necessary. I have to halve the recipe, most processors won't hold 9 c. of flour! Keeps well; can't tell the difference from store-bought. I like that I can modify the sodium content too; most mixes have LOADS of added salt."
"I needed some Bisquick for a recipe today and didn't have any so I made up this mix! It turned out so well. I used it to make my egg casserole and bicuits to go along with it! Both were a big hit!"
