How to Use Pancake Mix for Biscuits

By Shana Bitterman

Nothing beats the smell of freshly-baked biscuits. But making this fluffy, flaky baked good from scratch takes quite a bit of effort as most recipes require you to sift flour, mix the wet and dry ingredients separately and knead dough. Fortunately, using store-bought pancake mix makes preparing biscuits quicker and with a less effort and ingredients.


Step 1

Mix approximately 2 1/2 cups of buttermilk pancake mix with 1/3 cup of water, a 1/4 cup of melted butter and an egg. Use a hand mixer or a large spoon to stir the ingredients for a few minutes.

Step 2

Roll out the dough. The mixture should be thick enough to easily handle. Sprinkle a tablespoon of flour onto your countertop or a large cutting board. Form a ball with the dough and place it on your surface. Use a rolling pin to form a large, 1/2-inch thick square of dough.

Step 3

Use the top of a tea cup, cookie or biscuit cutter to make approximately eight circles in the dough. Pull away the excess dough and put the biscuits on a large baking sheet. Bake the biscuits for up to 10 minutes at 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
