Substitute for Bisquick

I have a recipe that calls for 2 cups of Bisquick, but I don't have any. What can I use as a substitute? Any ideas?

  • I'm only the 2nd anon, not the first. I do everything anon, cooking or not, because I've been stalked by "family" members and don't want to deal with them. If I stay anon they can't see what I'm saying.

  • Pancake mix is NOT the same. You can google bisquick copycat recipes - they are better than store-bought bisquick anyway.

  • Not picking on you, just curious...Why are you answering Anon? It's just a cooking question.

    I had thought about using pancake mix but thought that pancakes don't really rise up and Bisquick is for things like biscuits & such that rise. I wanted to make banana muffins this morning.

  • I don't have it in front of me, but August's recipe looks like the one I have, just a smaller batch. Prefer that to Bisquick. I keep it frozen by the cup so I can just pull out as much as I'll need.
