So, last weekend I wanted to make a coffee cake…more specifically, this coffee cake:

…but I didn’t have any Bisquick or boxed baking mix on hand.  Since it’s not something I use often, and because it takes up valuable space in my small pantry, I usually avoid recipes that require it.  But making your own mix is just about as easy as scooping out of a store-bought box, and you know exactly what that ingredient list contains!

Most likely, you already have all of these ingredients at home.  The great thing is that you may use this mix to make biscuits, pancakes, or any recipe that calls for baking mix.  And now the Tall Boy is thrilled I’m keeping this on hand, so he can have biscuits and gravy a little more often!

    Thanks so much for posting this recipe. Some weeks ago I saw a recipe that called for Bisquick baking mix and lamented that I did not have any nor did I find any recipe on the internet to help me. Now I have to go and look for that recipe.
    Thanks again

    Thank you for having a mix recipe using butter and not soy-filled vegetable shortening! Soy is not my friend and I avoid it as much as I can.

    Thanks for the recipe! Also if you use coconut oil in place of butter you won’t have to store it in the fridge plus it’s healthier

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
