Can you substitute pancake mix for biscuit mix?
When it’s time to whip up a batch of biscuits or scones, don’t worry if you are out of Bisquick.

What is the difference between biscuit and pancake mix?
Biscuits Need a Little Something Extra But whereas the mix requires only some water for basic pancakes, biscuits need milk, shortening and egg. In general, biscuits need some form of dairy product and (usually) more shortening added to the pancake mix.
Is pancake mix the same as flour?
Though flour remains the main ingredient in most pancake mixes, flour itself is just finely-ground grain.
Can you add eggs to complete pancake mix?

Does pancake mix have eggs?
Flour, baking powder, salt and sugar make up the dry ingredients ― butter (or oil), milk (or buttermilk) and eggs get mixed in later; vanilla, too, if you’re feeling fancy.
What causes homemade biscuits to fall apart?
When the fat is cut too small, after baking there will be more, smaller air pockets left by the melting fat. The result is a baked product that crumbles. When cutting in shortening and other solid fats, cut only until the pieces of shortening are 1/8- to 1/4-inch in size. Learn more about Fats in Baking.
What is the best fat for biscuits?
Butter is the winner here. The butter biscuits were moister with that wonderful butter taste and melt-in-your mouth texture. I’d be curious to test out substituting half or just two tablespoons of the butter with shortening to see if you get the best of both.
What makes homemade biscuits dry?
Often, the culprit is a bad ratio of ingredients. Adding too much flour and not enough butter will make your biscuits dry. Another common culprit for dry biscuits is baking them for too long. Biscuits require very little time to be ready and usually need to bake or be rolled out for only a few minutes.
What do I do if my biscuits are too crumbly?
To avoid this, try using as little flour as possible while preparing to roll your dough. Dry – “Dry” or “Crumbly” dough is a product of over-mixing or using too much of any ingredient during the mixing process. This can be reversed by adding one to two tablespoons of liquid (water, milk or softened butter) to your mix.
How do you moisten dry biscuits?
If you want added moisture, you can brush melted butter or olive oil on the biscuits before wrapping them in foil. Turn the heat to low and cover the pan if you have a lid (this helps retain moisture). Heat for one to two minutes. Flip the biscuits around the 30-second mark to heat the other side.
What does egg do to biscuits?
Eggs, Velie explains,
- Create a richer flavor.
- Work in tandem with the baking powder to leaven the biscuits for extra height.
- Tenderize (due to the added fat in the yolk)
- Contribute to a more golden-brown color (the additional protein contributes to the Maillard reaction)
