Are you thinking about baking a batch of biscuits or frying up a plate of pancakes? Betty Crocker’s “Bisquick,” is a pre-made baking mix that produces terrific baked products time and time again. The recipe for this baking mix is simple. Enriched flour fortified with vitamins and minerals, combined with cottonseed oil, leavening, dextrose, and salt.
That recipe doesn’t seem like magic, but it produces a fantastic batch of biscuits. However, you don’t need to rely on “Bisquick” to bake the perfect confectionary’s. If you’re stuck at home and can’t get to the store, there’s a way to make your own “Bisquick” clone using ingredients from your pantry.
Don’t give up on that dream of a fresh batch of biscuits this afternoon. Here’s a list of 15-substitute ingredients to make your own. Give it a try, and you’ll discover that’s they’re as good as anything Betty Crocker has to offer.
1. All-Purpose Flour
Swapping out the enriched flour in the Bisquick recipe is the biggest challenge you’ll face with trying to substitute the ingredients. We recommend you try using all-purpose flour as your base. All-purpose is the foundation of many baking recipes due to its consistency and characteristics.
All-purpose flour comes with labels such as “enriched flour” or “bleached flour.” A cup of all-purpose flour is an excellent source of riboflavin, selenium, niacin, and thiamin. With 455-calories per cup, this flour is nutritious and gives baked goods light and airy texture.
Self-rising flour is another form of all-purpose flour commonly used in baking. This product comes mixed with leavening to help the baked goods rise in the oven. We find that biscuits, muffins, and cupcakes all taste the best when we use all-purpose flour in the recipe. Start your Bisquick substitute with this ingredient as the cornerstone, and you’ll always get the results you want from your baking.
