You've got a hankerin' for pancakes or biscuits, but the recipe calls for Bisquick, and you're plum out. Not to worry. Now you can make a clone of the popular baking mix at home with just four simple ingredients. Store-bought Bisquick includes shortening, salt, flour, and leavening, so that's exactly what we need to duplicate it perfectly at home. This recipe makes about 6 cups of the stuff, which, just like the real thing, you can keep sealed up in a container in your pantry until it's flapjack time. When that time comes, just add milk and eggs for pancakes or waffles, or only milk if it's biscuits you want. You'll find all those recipes below in the "Tidbits."

    • Instructions

      1. Combine all the dry ingredients in a large bowl.

      2. Add the shortening and mix with an electric mixer on medium speed until all the shortening is blended with the flour.

      3. Use the mix as you would the real thing by following the directions on the box (see "Tidbits" below).

      Makes 6 cups.

      Tidbits: Use the following recipes to make pancakes, waffles and biscuits with the cloned version of the mix as you would with the real thing:

      Pancakes: Stir 2 cups Bisquick clone mix with 1 cup milk and 2 eggs in a bowl until blended. Pour 1/4 cup portions onto a hot griddle and cook until the edges are dry. Turn; cook until golden on the other side. Makes 14 pancakes.

      Waffles: Stir 2 cups Bisquick clone mix with 1 1/3 cups milk, 1 egg, and 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a bowl until blended. Pour onto a hot waffle iron and bake until the steaming stops. Makes twelve 4-inch waffles.

      Biscuits: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Stir 2 1/4 cups Bisquick clone mix with 2/3 cup milk. When a dough forms, turn it out onto a surface and sprinkle with extra mix. Knead 10 times. Roll the dough 1/2-inch thick and cut with a 2 1/2-inch cutter. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Makes 9 biscuits.
