Baking Mix Recipe {i.e. faux Bisquick}

When the weather cools, I get into my comfy Autumn clothes and into making my comfy Autumn meals 🙂

A family-favorite is chicken or turkey pot pie. I love these meals too as it allows me to easily convert leftover meat into a brand new dish – saving money while keeping the menu fresh.

In one of my FAVORITE BOOKS that everyone who wants to save money should read, Miserly Moms, Joni McCoy offers a wide variety of DIY recipes that allows you to create your own at home so you can save $$$ on the name brand items. The Baking Mix recipe an essential one for me. This recipe makes about 10 cups and can be used in any Bisquick recipe – we typically use it for pot pie and drop biscuits, but pancakes and waffles are easy options too!

The thing I like about this recipe is that it is the epitome of store-bought mixes… it’s so easy to do, we just don’t know HOW.

By having the recipe available to create your own, you have the time-saving option that the convenient boxes offer, without the cost.

So, here you go! Here is the Faux Bisquick Recipe!


  • 8 c. flour
  • 1 1/4 c. nonfat dry milk
  • 1/4 c. baking powder
  • 1 T salt
  • 2 c. shortening

Directions: Combine flour, milk powder, baking powder & salt in a very large bowl. Cut in shortening until it resembles coarse cornmeal. Store in tightly closed covered container. Makes about 10 cups.

Voila! There you go!

Now, you can easily make several meal options for any meal of the day 🙂

Good sites to use this with:


Have a great day!
