Homemade... another word for better
5 c. flour (you could use part whole wheat flour- I’ve only tried it subbed with 1 c. whole wheat but it worked fine)
1/4 c. baking powder
2 Tbsp. sugar (optional)
1 tsp. salt
1 c. shortening (I use butter)
makes about 6 cups
Mix and sift the dry ingredients together (flour, baking powder, and salt). Use a whisk or a large spoon.
Cut in the shortening or oil into the dry ingredients. If using melted butter, make sure to evenly disperse the butter as much as possible.
Mix well and store. Use the same amount as you would Bisquick. This will keep for up to 4 months if stored in a tight container in a dry space.
