WOW!!! I just made pancakes yesterday morning and had just enough Bisquick. Did I make a mental note to get more at the store? Of course not. I asked myself, "What is in this stuff"? Thank You. :2thumb:

BTW I used some of my freshly made apple butter to top them off instead of syrup. Yummy!

*Andi could you post the recipe for the larger amount? When I actually need Bisquick, I tend to use a lot. (Every time I bake something I have to make extra for my Daughter and for my Mom!) Do you know the shelf life of the homemade recipe?

UncleJoe--I am making my third batch of apple butter! I may make more next weekend too!

I haven't tried this yet, but a guy I work with makes acorn flour by grinding acorns to powder and mixing it with Bisquick 50/50. Probably a good source of protein in a survival situation.

Anyone know the shelf life? Should be the same as Bisquick, shouldn't it?? I would love to mix up a large batch for my storage.

To hell with the Bisquick.
My family has been loving the blender pancake recipe from the what to do with your wheat thread. I printed it out and taped it up inside my cabinet. Fresh, healthy and cheap. We eat them plain or add 1 banana or 1 cup of any type of berries to the recipe or 1.5 cups of corn to make corn fritters. We make waffles from the same batter. I'll never buy pancake mix again.

I guess that does come across a bit harsh. I just mean why buy overpriced processed junk when it's to make fresh.
Just a bit! ... I posted a HOMEMADE recipe to a overpriced processed junk food... Hello ???

Hey I'm not trying to pick a fight. Guys were asking about shelf life and wheat berries hold up longer than powder, that's all.
Same team man, same team. :)
