    Can I use Bisquick for self-rising flour?

    I know about the Cook's Thesaurus formula for making your own self-rising flour, but I'm wondering if I could just use pancake mix instead.

    Any thought?s

    I think not - from foodsubs.com. Bisquick is a biscuit mix that includes fat, milk, and salt.

    biscuit mix Notes: Use this mix to make biscuits as well as pancakes and other baked goods. Bisquick is a well-known brand. To make your own: Combine 3 cups flour (preferable cake or pastry flour), 1/3 cup powdered milk, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 cup shortening. Sift together the dry ingredients, then mix in the shortening until the mix reaches a sandy consistency. Cover and store in a cool place.

    self-rising flour = (in older cookbooks) pancake flour Shopping hints: This is more commonly used in the South than in the North. Substitutes: 1 C all-purpose flour + 1 teaspoons baking powder + teaspoon salt

    yeah. Bisquick is definitely totally different from self-rising flour. I wouldn't try subbing one for the other.

    Sorry, but I would not substitute Bisquick for S.R. flour. I just looked at my box of bisquick and it has way more ingredients than what you need for S.R. flour.
