Kindest regards,

Several weeks ago I was watching Laurel Watson on The Good Morning Show making something that had Bisquick in the recipe and she suggested a NZ alternative. I could be wrong, but I thought she said it was Baking Mix. Maybe someone else could confirm that. Now here's the rub, I am not even sure whether that is still available. But I did find a recipe for the same baking mix that had been published in the NZ Women's Weekly about 20 years ago!! I have taken a note of it and if you need it then I can send it to you.

I often came across recipes that called for Bisquick and found this one about 15-20 years ago that works brilliantly and is just the same as Biquick.
10 cups flour
5 Tbs skim milk powder
4 Tbs Baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
150g grated butter
Sift flour, baking powder and salt 3 times. Rub in grated butter until it resembles fine breadcrumbs Store in a tin with a tight fitting lid in the fridge. makes 12 cups of mix.

Also used Alison Holsts baking mix with success as well.

According to the back of the bisquick pack: 20% = fat plus 80% = leavened flour
..
1 cup "Bisquick" Substitute = 4 oz or 120g self raising flour plus 1 oz or 30g shortening/butter.
