Gluten Free Bisquick Type Mix Recipe
0

10 posts in this topic

DH misses "regular" white flour pancakes, so I tried an experiment.

I mixed up a small batch of my own "Bisquick" type mix, based on a recipe I found In "Top Secret Recipes Unlocked".

gluten-free "Bisquick" Mix

3/4 c. rice flour (I use a 50/50 mix of brown & white rice flours)

1/4 c. starch (potato, tapioca, or corn)

1/2 tbsp. baking powder

1/4 + 1/8 tsp. salt

1/4 c. butter (or shortening)

Combine dry ingredients, then cut in the butter or shortening until the clump size resembles peas. Store in fridge until use if you use butter, a cupboard for shortening.

For pancakes:

Entire batch of mix

1/2 of an entire beaten egg

1/4 c. milk (or just a bit more to get the pancakes to your desired consistency)

Combine wet ingredients into the dry and cook as you normally would for pancakes.

Comments:

I really, really liked these pancakes. They were slightly grainy, which I liked. DH wasn't so fond of the grainy-ness, so I'll use sweet rice flour next time.

The mix behaved exactly like regular bisquick. The pancakes were fluffy (ie thick), light and pancakey in texture, and got the most amazing golden color that I have seen on any gluten-free food item. Plus, these tasted exactly like the pancakes my mom made when I was a kid.

I don't buy shortening, so I used butter, and they were nice and buttery in flavor as well. Shortening would probably be just fine, too.

If you come from a larger family (we're only two), the full recipe would be:

3 c. rice flour

1 c. potato (or prefered) starch

1 c. butter or shortening

2 tbsp. baking powder

1 1/2 tsp. salt

The mixing directions for the mix would be the same and the pancake recipe would be:

2 c. mix

2 eggs, beaten

1 c. milk

for 14 pancakes (per the recipe)

Sweet rice flour did the trick. I have now made several batches of pancakes and can attest to the consistency equating to regular bisquick. The mix also behaves as it should in other recipes, and DH has requested the cheeseburger pie (?) recipe I found on another website.

And yes, I know that everybody's more interested in buying it than making it. :D:P

So did you sub sweet rice flour for all the rice flour, or some sort of blend? I have some sweet rice flour in my pantry that I bought by mistake, just looking for a place to go!

Yep, all sweet rice flour. It even feels like regular wheat flour. I was totally surprised by that.

I don't see why not, I've used buckwheat flour and it's fine. I think the big thing to keep in mind is to substitute really finely ground flours so that you end up with the same "silky" feeling texture that wheat flour and sweet rice flour are known for.

My best suggestion is to just make like a quarter batch to get a single serving of pancakes and see if the texture is okay before making a really big batch.

Oh, I missed this thread. My computer crashed and needed a new hard drive.

After paying $3.84 for a 16 oz. box of gluten free Bisquick at Wal-Mart, I think I'm definitely more interested in making it than buying it!!!

I bought some sweet rice flour locally for approx. $1.50/lb. at an Asian store. biggrin.gif

I guess I am not too familiar with different kinds of rice, if you buy the rice to grind yourself, will the bag say, "sweet rice"? I don't buy flour if I can make it myself :)

Nope. It's just glutinous (no, not the poison gluten) short grain rice that is milled very fine, it is very soft, almost like powdered sugar or cornstarch in texture. Most of the time, until recently, it was mostly used for thickening. I guess you could always try grinding it down as fine as you can and see how grainy it ends up being.

I just buy mine at the asian market near my house. ;)

I dug this thread up for somebody and read through it again. I noticed that I forgot to mention that when I use this, I use the regular bisquick recipes and maybe up the liquid a pinch. You'll probably end up with funky results if you use this mix in the gluten-free specific recipes, as mine already has shortening/butter/fat added.

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
