Epic Recipes Made With Bisquick
Led by the slogan “a world of baking in a box,” Bisquick is an American convenience food that has inspired creativity in the kitchen for over 90 years. Here is a rundown on the pre-mix biscuit and pancake mix Bisquick, as well as a roundup of our favorite recipes made easier with Bisquick.
What Is Bisquick?
Bisquick is a pre-measured blend of lard, baking powder, flour, and salt celebrated for its ease of use. The brand is owned by Betty Crocker, which is part of the General Mills family of brands.
When combined with milk or water and binding ingredients like eggs, the product gave way to biscuits, pancakes, and waffles in mere minutes, without the need to measure several dry ingredients for one recipe.
For home chefs and bakers, Bisquick quickly became a cheap and versatile product that made better cooking and baking more accessible. Its applications in sweet and savory dishes beyond biscuits and pancakes were soon discovered, and other product varieties, such as Heart Healthy and Gluten-Free, were introduced over time to reflect shifting consumer needs.
When Was Bisquick Invented?
According to General Mills, Bisquick’s parent company, the baking mix was invented in 1931 after a General Mills salesman discovered a train chef’s pre-made baking mix for biscuits that tasted homemade in a fraction of the time.
Where to Buy Bisquick
Bisquick is a time-tested pancake and waffle mix available at large and small grocery stores and convenience stores.
You can also purchase Bisquick on Amazon.
What Aisle Is Bisquick In?
Bisquick is a baking product, so look for it alongside the flour and baking mixes in the baking aisle.
Can Bisquick Go Bad?
Despite being shelf-stable, your box of Bisquick mix does not last forever. However, proper storage extends its shelf life.
Store unopened Bisquick in the pantry for up to a year, then refrigerate your opened box of Bisquick mix in an airtight container immediately after use.
While Bisquick mix carries a best-by date, this date is more so an indicator of freshness than food spoilage. Bisquick remains edible for three to six months past its best-by date.
Aside from an off texture or smell, mold spots are a surefire sign that moisture has made the product dangerous to consume. Discard any packages that show discoloration within the powdered mix.
Bisquick mix turns fluffy, golden, and buttery when cooked, so any changes to how the product cooks usually indicate that it is past peak quality.
How to Store Bisquick
Unopened Bisquick can be stored in the pantry as long as the box is sealed and the pantry environment is cool, dry, and away from direct sunlight or heat.
Refrigerate any Bisquick that has been opened, then enjoy it within four months. The contents must be in an airtight container, as humidity causes the product to spoil faster.
Can Bisquick Be Frozen?
While storing your opened Bisquick in the freezer is another preservation method, it typically isn’t recommended.
This is because the temperature changes that the product undergoes when being thawed and refrozen can lead to textural differences and faster degradation.
Can Bisquick Replace Flour?
Since the ingredients in Bisquick combine to produce consistent baking results, Bisquick can replace flour if you build a pre-mix with the same ingredients and proportions.
Substitute Bisquick with flour at a 1:1 ratio, then add vegetable oil, baking soda, sugar, salt, and cornstarch in proportions that correspond to the recipe you’re making.
Although Bisquick was a pioneer among modern ready-made mixes, other pancake mixes have made their way onto shelves. Here is a 2020 ranking of pancake mixes by popularity. According to this ranking, Bisquick is the second most popular pancake mix brand.
- Aunt Jemima
- Hungry Jack (Pillsbury)
- Betty Crocker
- Log Cabin
- Other Brands
Is Bisquick Gluten-Free?
While the original formulation of Bisquick isn’t gluten-free, Bisquick has a certified gluten-free variety made with rice flour and modified potato starch instead of wheat flour. The Betty Crocker site also has a gluten-free recipes section with ideas from breakfast to dessert.
Is Bisquick Vegan?
Yes! The original Bisquick mix is safe for vegan diets. Vegan cooks can mix Bisquick with egg and dairy substitutes to use the product in pancakes and baked goods.
Since its invention in the 1930s, Betty Crocker has released flavored and unflavored varieties of Bisquick.
