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, Bisquick can be used to make a wide variety of baked goods from pizza dough to pancakes to dumplings to snickerdoodle cookies.



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


Bisquick contains trans fat, but no cholesterol.

Popular culture

According to the 2005 computer-animated short movie The Madagascar Penguins in a Christmas Caper, one of the penguins' mottos is ``never bathe in hot oil and bisquick``. The other is ``never swim alone``.
