Biscuit Mix Substitute Recipe

Quick Mix RecipeIn this post, I share a biscuit mix substitute recipe just because you don’t always have the ‘quick meals’ on hand.  A good biscuit mix makes a great filler for most any meal when you are trying to make it go further.  Check out my easy to create a recipe with the print option below.

Biscuit Mix Substitute Recipe

Super easy to mix up and I always have the ingredients in this recipe on hand.  Don’t you?  

This recipe can be used in many different recipes including casseroles, pancakes, dumplings, and even homemade breads.  The next time you find a great recipe that calls for ‘biscuit mix’ you will always have it on hand as long as you have the following:

  • flour
  • Baking powder
  • salt

Just shift together the fresh ingredients and you are ready to bake!  I hope you take advantage of the printable recipe card below.  You can add this to your kitchen notebook or share on social media.  Just be sure to tag me @brenhaas or the links featured on this website.

Biscuit Mix Substitute Recipe


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon shortening, olive oil, or melted butter


  1. Combine dry ingredients; whisk ingredients together.
  2. Add the shortening (or olive oil or melted butter); cut into dry ingredients until well mixed.
  3. Note: This recipe can be doubled or tripled if desired and the extra can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 months.

I hope you find this recipe useful.  I decided to share it because I wanted to mix up my favorite Egg bake recipe but didn’t have any quick mix.  The recipe actually turned out a little more fluffier than it does with the quick mix you can buy in the store.  As long as you use fresh ingredients you are good to go!  Be sure to store flour and other dry ingredients air tight.  Most of these products will last for up to a year in the proper conditions.
