Frequently Asked Questions

Is Pancake Mix the same as Bisquick? 

Most pancake mixes are very similar to the original Bisquick baking mix and contain flour, leavening, salt, and shortening. Pancake mixes may contain slightly more sugar, though, resulting in a sweeter final product. Pancake mixes work best for sweetbreads, muffins, and scones rather than savory dishes when substituting for Bisquick.

What is Bisquick good for? 

Bisquick is simply a premade baking mix made of flour, fat, leavening, and salt. It’s traditionally used to make pancakes or waffles, biscuits, and muffins but there is SO much more you can make with it!

Can Bisquick go bad? 

Does Bisquick go bad? Of course, Bisquick will go bad over time. It can last up to a year if stored in an airtight container in a cool, dark pantry. Store your box of original Bisquick in a cool, dark pantry and follow the “Best By” date on the box.

Now that you have these favorite 10+ Bisquick recipes, let’s get cooking and baking! There’s no need to buy Original Bisquick for these recipes. Get started with this simple recipe with instructions on how to make your own homemade baking mix:

Keyword bisquick recipe, bisquick biscuits, recipe with bisquick
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 14 servings
Calories 326kcal


  • mixing bowl


  • 6 cups all-purpose flour, unbleached
  • 3 Tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 Tablespoons Kosher salt
  • 1 cup vegetable shortening, cubed (see substitutions below in notes)


To make baking mix in a blender or food processor

  • Add dry ingredients into a food processor or blender. Pulse to mix.
  • Then, add vegetable shortening, one cube at a time, and pulse until well mixed. Bisquick mixture is fully mixed when it is lump-free.

To make baking mix by hand

  • To mix Bisquick without a food processor or blender, stir together or sift dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
  • Use a pastry cutter or two knives to cut in the vegetable shortening. Use a grater to shred sticks of butter or cold shortening for even easier mixing.
  • Then whisk or sift the mixture until well mixed. The baking mix will look like sand with lumps smaller than peas.

Storing homemade Bisquick baking mix

  • Store in an airtight container in a dark, cool location like a pantry or cabinet. 
  • If you use butter or margarine instead of vegetable shortening, make sure to store it in an air tight container in the fridge instead of out in room temperature


Substitutions for Hydrogenated Vegetable Shortening:
Spectrum Naturals Organic Shortening is non-hydrogenated (trans fat free) and vegan. 
Coconut oil is non-hydrogenated and vegan. With a melting point of 76-78ºF, coconut oil stays solid at room temperature (around 68º). Using coconut oil will likely add a slight coconut flavor to the recipe ingredients you make with this homemade Bisquick mix. 
Nutriva Organic Shortening (linked) is non-hydrogenated and vegan. 
Butter or margarine. Keep your DIY baking mix refrigerated if you use butter or margarine.
Tallow (linked) is non-hydrogenated, rendered beef fat. Pure tallow has a short shelf life and refrigeration is recommended for a longer shelf life.
