Pancake, Waffle and Biscuit Recipes Using Baking Mix

Updated on June 24, 2014

Recipes Using my Baking Mix #1

In my baking mix article, I provided recipes for 4 different types of baking mix. The first one is similar to Bisquick brand mix, and is the one used as the base for these recipes.

Waffles

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of baking mix #1
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

* non-stick cooking spray

Directions:

  1. Preheat waffle iron
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat eggs until fluffy
  3. Add baking mix, and stir
  4. Add the remaining ingredients, and mix until smooth
  5. Spray waffle iron with nonstick cooking spray
  6. Pour mix into hot waffle iron
  7. Cook until golden brown

Fluffy Pumpkin Pancakes:

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups baking mix #1
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 cups milk

Pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups baking mix #1
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (optional)
  • 1 cup fruit, fresh or thawed frozen, if desired (blueberries, raspberries and strawberries, or even chopped mangos)

* small amount of oil, if needed for the pan

Directions:

  1. Add the baking mix to a large mixing bowl
  2. Mix in the wet ingredients
  3. If fruit is involved, be careful not to mix too violently
  4. Add oil to the pan, if necessary (my griddle is non-stick, so it isn't required)
  5. Turn the stove to low/medium, or the electric griddle to 325 degrees or so
  6. Using a ladle or a large spoon, add a scoop of pancake batter to the pan or griddle
  7. Cook for a few short minutes. When the pancakes have bubbles all over them, it's time to flip them over
  8. Cook the other side for a few minutes, until browned

Biscuits

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups baking mix #1
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 cup milk

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450°
  2. Lightly grease baking sheet
  3. Add baking mix to a large mixing bowl
  4. Cut in the shortening until the mixture has only pea-sized lumps in it
  5. Add milk until dry mix is absorbed
  6. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto baking sheet
  7. Bake 12-15 minutes, until golden brown

      Thanks, Suzie! I thought it was a natural set of recipes to go with the baking mix ones. Later on I'll make more. The next one will probably be based on the cornbread baking mix. I make corn muffins & corn bread quite often. I also want to make one catered to vegans.

      The pumpkin one is the same as the "Fluffy Pumpkin Pancake" recipe, except using the baking mix. I tried it out already, and it came out great.

      DIYmommy,

      I love adding fruit to pancakes or waffles. It hits the spot!

      I enjoy my maple syrup, but I use honey more than anything else. I love honey. I have some agave nectar, too, although I have only ever added them to drinks. I haven't thought of using it on waffles.

      You're welcome, and thanks for reading and commenting, I appreciate it.

      Eddy, Thank you, I'm glad you like it enough to put it in your cookbook. I have found quite a few gems on HubPages. I have been cooking so many "new" meals lately!

      You're welcome, and I hope you enjoy!

      These recipes sound great, especially the waffle one. Personally, I love to put some fresh fruit, like blueberries or strawberries, on top for a little extra flavor. Lately, I've been using either honey or agave nector rather than syrup. Thank you for the great hub!

      Ellesvoice, that made me laugh! I guess I should not have assumed!

      Congrats to your upcoming baby! October is a good month - it's when I was born.

      :) I hope your fiancé, nephew and dad love the food if you try any of these recipes out!

      I don't have kids yet either, we're expecting one in October! By my boys, I meant my fiancé, nephew and dad ^^ haha, and I'm sure they'll love these!

      Suzzycue, I have never made the cheddar biscuit recipe I posted a link to, but I want to try it soon. It looks spectacular! I don't always eat biscuits, but when I do, the kind with cheese or herbs are the kind I like. In the future I plan on adding other variations, because there are so many good ones out there!

      Thanks for reading and responding.

      As for the shelf life for the baking mixes, it depends on what type of flour is used. According to a link I posted on the baking mix recipe, white flour lasts for about 6 months, oat flour for about 3 months, and whole wheat flour for a few months if you store in the cupboard. If you store the mixes in the freezer, they last at least twice that long. I will add a section on shelf life soon, since that will probably be a big question people will ask.

      Tillsontitan, wow, that must really limit what you can eat! I'm glad I provided you with some alternatives, and if you try any out, I hope you like! I found the Cheddar Bay Biscuits on a site online, and wanted to add it, since it also uses a baking mix. I haven't actually tried it yet, but I want to soon. It looks very delicious, though. Once I try it out, I may tweak the recipe a bit and put it directly into a hub, rather than from a link, but for now it works. I am looking forward to trying it out, too. It reminds me of the biscuits they show on the "Red Lobster" commercials! Mmmmm!

      Thanks, Unknown, I'm glad you like the recipes. If you try any, I hope you enjoy. I already made pancakes from my baking mix, and they were tasty.

      Ellesvoice, You're welcome. I love sharing my recipes, and creating my own versions of food I enjoy.

      Great! If you try these, I hope your kids enjoy them. My baking mix that goes to this will work for these recipes, or else any type of Bisquick-type baking mixes if you happen to have any on hand.

      When you're a kid, big breakfasts like that are especially great! I don't have kids yet, but my boyfriend enjoys pancakes, and I make them for us every week or two.

      Au fait, thank you for your compliments. I appreciate it!

      Sometimes when I bake one type of thing often enough, I will make a personalized mix in advance. All I do is look at a recipe, multiply the dry ingredients by about three, mix those ingredients together, and store them in a sealed container in my cool, dry cupboard. I make a little recipe card listing the wet ingredients for each batch, as well as how much of the dry mix to use, and the instructions so I have it handy.

      Thanks for your feedback!

      I love cheddar biscuits . I like the idea you are getting rid of the boxes and that you can store your own baking mix. How long does it keep? I am pinning your recipe.

      I'm loving this! For me Bisquik Gluten Free is the only baking mix I can use. Now, using your wonderful recipes I have a few more alternatives to plain pancakes...your biscuits and cheddar bay biscuits are now on my list of "to make" items!

      Voed up, useful, and interesting.

      Wonderful recipes! Those pancakes look absolutely delicious! While I'm not much of a pancake eater, myself, my boys absolutely LOVE them! So, I make them about once a week for them! Always looking for new tasty recipes to try out, thank you for sharing!

      These recipes are great! I would love to never buy another box of Bisquik again and just be able to make things from scratch from the basic ingredients in my pantry. You are amazing to be able to write 2 fantastic hubs in such a short time! Voted up, useful, and awesome!
