Gluten Free Bisquick Type Mix Recipe

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

    • You should get the lymph nodes checked. You need to be eating a regular gluten containing diet to get the best & most accurate results for celiac disease.
    • try ragu double cheddar sauce
    • Hi everyone, This is my first post. I am happy to find a forum for being shared and being answered. I am really despressed with my all symptoms and got confused with tons of information from google :((. Sorry if my story below is long and spend your time. I just want to be shared my worries. Thanks I experienced some symptoms such as abdomen pains, diarrhea, fatigue, one side heachade and enlarged lymph nodes. These things are appeared more frequently after I gave birth to my baby 2 years ago. Recently, it becomes quite bad. I have met some family doctors, they did not concern anything until the recent one. She said that I should try gluten free for 1 month, diary free for 2 weeks, then returned. But I still do not do any tests for comfirming except for CBC test and ultra sound for lymph nodes. All results were normal, except for one indicator in blood test a little low (mchc). The doctor said that she had no concern. I have travelled a lot, so it was hard to eliminate gluten totally. I have had some accidentally gluten eating, so I still feel sick, especially abdomen pain and lymph nodes. I am now in strictly diet for 1.5 weeks and feel quite better, except for the lymph nodes. After 2 months, I finally can return doctor office for more discuss, though I am very worried. To talk about the lymph nodes, I have one in gland for 1 year, not movable; another in neck for about 4-5 months, movable. They are in size of a bean. Are they too big? They seem not enlarge or down size from the day I felt them. Recently, I am very scared to find that there are 2 or 3 on going in the lower neck and groin area. They are at the size of peas. And no one is bad pain, just a little discomfortable. Oh my god, I hope you guys can share my feeling... just some days you wake up and find out that some new lumps growing up in your body. That's a terrible feeling. Has anyone experienced the enlarged lymph nodes? Before or after going gluten free diet. Could the diet help to reduce their size or they will still there. I read about the link between celiac and lymphoma. I am really really scared. My daughter, she is just 2. I will have doctor appointment next week, beside the tests to comfirm celiac, should I ask her to check the lymph nodes again also. Any one got celiac and lymphoma at the same time? Please share your experience. Thank you.
    • For the people that been  diagnosed with celiac diseased and med board, when you got out of the army did you get and disability I've been in the army for 6 years and this has been my family's income for the 6 years, so what assistants have you guys been given???
    • That isn't entirely correct.  the gluten-free list is the stuff that they know is & test to be gluten-free and not made with gluten products.  The other list is no gluten ingredients but not tested .  Read the link for the explanation
