I love making things that you normally buy in a box, at home. Especially when it’s as easy to make as this Homemade Bisquick Mix. I don’t make fresh biscuits nearly as often as I crave them, for one reason only. I’m lazy.

Bread isn’t a nutritional requirement when planning my evening meals so it’s often left out of the equation. Not, that I don’t love it. It’s just that when the clock strikes five I want to be done with my day and only do the work that is required of me.

That ’s the great thing about this mix. You whip it up one day, keep it in the fridge and any time you want fresh biscuits you take a couple cups out, add some milk and bake it up. You can also use this mix for any recipe that calls for a bisquick/biscuit mix. No need to go to the store when you have this stashed away in your freezer.

Since we are a small family this recipe is enough to last us a while. But, it can be easily doubled or tripled depending on the amount your family will go through.
