Bisquick - when you really need it - but never buy it.

I was in need of bisquick. I never buy it as I make everything just about from scratch. I went onto my favorite recipe website and found a recipe that whipped up in no time at all for the other recipe I was making. The original recipe was posted by Salt Lake Meal Swapping. Her original amount makes almost 13 cups. I needed nowhere that amount so changed the amounts to make 4 cups.

Powdered milk, flour, baking soda, shortening, salt, cream of tartar and baking powder are the list of ingredients. All found in the pantry!

Bisquick in a Pinch
2 3/4 cups flour
2 7/8 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2/3 tsp cream of tartar
1/3 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup powdered milk
3/4 cup vegetable shortening

Mix dry ingredients. Mix in shortening until mixture is very crumbly. Store well. Use as you would bisquick.
