While Betty Crocker® makes a gluten-free Bisquick mix, it contains modified starch and aluminum, which many people prefer to avoid. If that’s you, or you’re interested in saving money, try this homemade version.
The processed ingredients that Betty Crocker Gluten Free Bisquick Mix contains includes sodium aluminum phosphate as well as monocalcium phosphate, and modified potato starch* which may be processed with chlorine bleach.
It also contains sugar, which is not in their original Bisquick mix. The sugar is added for moisture, which is not a bad thing. I actually use it in this homemade version. However, when possible, I use organic sugar. Costco sells a 10-pound bag at a fairly reasonable price.
I would prefer to use natural ingredients whenever possible. Like most people, I place modified ingredients in the junk food category and use it on occasion such as Expandex modified tapioca starch. Give this homemade gluten free Bisquick a try in any of the several Betty Crocker Gluten Free Bisquick Recipes such as their Gluten Free Cheddar Garlic Biscuits Recipe. Here’s my version: Cheddar Garlic Gluten Free Biscuits Recipe using this substitute Bisquick mix.
I adapted this recipe from a “gluten” Bisquick recipe I found on Food.com in addition to the list of ingredients in Betty Crocker’s Gluten Free Bisquick. I did however, skip the shortening as suggested on Food.com in effort to match Betty Crocker’s version more closely.
I have only used this mix in a couple of recipes now, including my Cheddar Garlic Biscuits. It turns out light recipes. However, be sure to read the below comments section for those who left feedback on their experiences.
Have you checked out all of the over 300 Betty Crocker and General Mills Gluten Free Products lately? I think you’ll be surprised. There are a number of them now. While you’re there, see the nutrition and ingredients in each of the Betty Crocker gluten free baking mixes, as well.
2015 UPDATE: Though this mix is something my readers have thoroughly enjoyed, I prefer the new, lighter mix, which I first tested out in my Fluffy Gluten Free Buttermilk Biscuits Recipe.
Share in a comment below which Betty Crocker gluten free recipe that you’ve tried using this gluten free bisquick recipe. I look forward to trying this Impossibly Easy Gluten Free Peach and Raspberry Pie.
