Bisquick

Bisquick is a pre-mixed baking product sold by General Mills under their Betty Crocker brand, consisting of flour, shortening, salt, and baking powder (a leavening agent).

According to General Mills, Bisquick was born when one of their sales executives met a train dining car chef in 1930 who mixed lard and the dry ingredients for biscuits ahead of time. The recipe was adapted, using hydrogenated oil, thus eliminating the need for refrigeration (Sesame oil was originally used as a preservative, identified on the box as "Ingredient S" over the years), and officially introduced on grocers' shelves in 1931.

Originally intended for making biscuits very quickly (hence its name), Bisquick can be used to make a wide variety of baked goods from pizza dough to pancakes to dumplings to snickerdoodle cookies.

Substitution

One cup of Bisquick can be substituted by a mix of the following ingredients: 1 cup flour, 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 Tablespoon oil or melted butter.

Health

Bisquick contains 4.5g of trans fat, per cup, and no cholesterol.
