Life Without Bisquick

One of the many things we are not able to get here in Oz is Bisquick. We all know in the USA that Bisquick is the “quick” and easy way to pancakes, waffles, biscuits, etc. Well this is a country of very little processed food so I am learning to cook from scratch. Yep, you read that right. I am becoming good friends with baking powder, bi-carb soda, flour, eggs, oil and more! This morning I successfully made pancakes for M from scratch. The first one came out of the pan looking fabulous! I put it on a plate, poured another into the pan and went to butter the first one. No I don’t have a griddle (yet) so I am using the non stick frying pan. Anyway, I began to spread the butter on the pancake and the whole top layer “slid off” with shiny dough underneath. Yeah, well, it looked great on the outside but guess I didn’t leave it long enough for the inside. After the first one, the next 8 came out beautifully! M and I enjoyed some pancakes and maple syrup on this beautiful Sunday morning down under.
Toodles and peace to you and yours!

One thought on “Life Without Bisquick

  1. Not only that but no Grands biscuits or cinnamon rolls like I used to make for my girls every Saturday morning back in Tennessee! To butcher Shakespeare to illustrate my point:

    King Richard: The Grands! The Grands! My kingdom for some Grands!
    Catesby: Withdraw, my lord to the USA. I’ll bake you some cinnamon rolls.
    King Richard: Slave! I am stuck here in Australia, and must endure the lack of Pilsbury products.
