|cinnamon sugar drop biscuits with melted buttercream frosting|
I originally started using this recipe because I ran out of bisquick and didn't want to go to the store. Then I figured out I could have healthier biscuits if I made a few substitutions. Whole wheat flour and olive oil make these preservative free and yummy too!
10 cups flour (I use whole wheat)
1/2 cup baking powder
2 tbs white sugar (I have never used honey here, let me know how it goes if you try it!)
2 tsp salt
1 1/4 cups oil (I use olive oil, any vegetable oil should work well)
combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl. Drizzle in oil as dry ingredients mix in the mixer. Mixture should have small lumps and resemble sand. Store in an airtight container in a cool dry place. Store in refrigerator if you aren't using it within a month or it will go rancid.
The biscuits you make with this mix will be a little more dense than white flour biscuits because of the bran in the whole wheat flour. I usually just make drop biscuits (cause I'm lazy :)) with some cheese and milk or cinnamon, sugar and milk. Yummy and quick!
Do you make your own mixes?
