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


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.


  • 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.


  • 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.

  2. Thanks Nancy. I had so many requests for ordinary (not GFDF) recipes, I finally gave in. Glad you’re enjoying them.
