Miss Mix

Basic recipes for Biscuits, Emergency Biscuits, Pancakes and Muffins made from your own homemade biscuit mix. They can also be made with store-bought biscuit mix or all-purpose baking mix, as it is sometimes called. I don’t use too many mixes in my own home cooking, but I do find Biscuit Mix to be helpful. The homemade version is especially affordable.

Basic Biscuit Mix Recipes

Biscuits

Combine the ingredients in a bowl. Mix to a soft dough. Knead 10 times. Roll out the dough to 1/2 or 3/4 inch thickness. Cut or pat the dough into rounds and bake at 425° for 10 to 15 minutes.

Emergency or Drop Biscuits

Prepare the above recipe, increasing the milk to 1/2-cup. Stir the batter to make a soft, sticky dough. Drop the dough by spoonfuls onto an oiled cookie sheet and bake as directed. These are lumpy and irregularly shaped, they are also easy and taste quite good.

Pancakes

  • 1 cup Biscuit Mix
  • 1/2 cup milk or buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • Fat for frying

Combine the biscuit mix, milk and egg in a large bowl. Stir well, the batter will be lumpy. Drop by 1/4-cupfuls onto a well oiled skillet or griddle. Brown on both sides and serve hot with syrup or applesauce.

Muffins

  • 1-1/8 cup Biscuit Mix (1-1/8 cups is equal to 1-cup plus 2-tablespoons OR a slightly heaping cup)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoons oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk

In a small bowl combine the biscuit mix and sugar. In a large measuring cup combine the oil, egg and milk. Quickly whisk the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients. Leave the batter lumpy, don’t overmix. Fill 6 well-oiled muffin cups and bake at 400° for 20 minutes.
