Substitute For Bisquick

Recommended Posts

I remember reading on here at some point that someone had figured out a mix of flours that was very simialar to bisquick. My son used to love the make the biscuits from the mix and misses them. Anyone remember it or know how to find it. I am not that adept at the searches.

Thanks,

Roo

Roo-

I found a recipe in Bette Hagman's "THE GLUTEN-FREE GOURMET COOKS COMFORT FOODS" page 226

Featherlight Biscuits

7/8 cup Feather light mix

1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons shortening

1/2 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

In mixing bowl, combine the flour mix, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt. using a pastry blender or two knives, cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the buttermilk and work gently until the dough forms a ball.

Turn out onto a surface dusted with sweet rice flour and pat or lightly roll to 3/4" thickness. Cut the dough into 2 1/2" squares or form round biscuits using a 2 1/2" round cutter.( I use a large drinking glass) Place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes. I bake them in a glass pyrex baking pan. I also put oil in the pan and turn the biscuit dough in the oil before baking. This keeps them from browning to much and locks in moisture.

The Featherlight mix formula is

Rice Flour(1part) 1 cup

Tapioca Flour(1 part) 1 cup

Cornstarch(1part) 1 cup

Potato Flour(1 teaspoon per cup) 1 Tablespoon

Our whole family eats these and I think they are pretty good! I know the 1 2 3 Gluten Free website also has a biscuit mix( I haven't tried it yet!). Hope your family likes them as much as ours does.

Good Lord!!! Do you need some sort of college degree to make that biscuit recipe??? I read about halfway thru and got tired just reading it!! Anyone here that could invent some Poppin-Fresh gluten-free biscuits would make a fortune!!

The Gluten Free Pantry now has a "quick mix" that is very much like Bisquick I made drop biscuits with it and even non gluten-free hubby liked them.

Yes...Anne Lee, the most...respected celiac nutritionist, said that Bette Hagman recipes are good, but they take forever to make and require tons of ingredients. She said that basically, you need to spend a lot of time in the kitchen to make her recipes and she doesn't have the time (being a working mom) to make those recipes.
