Gluten Free Bisquick Copycat Recipe

Gluten Free Self Rising Flour & Gluten Free Bisquick Copycat













Today the mysteries of Gluten Free Bisquick are finally revealed here at the EZ Gluten Free Blog.  If you've followed my blog or been a subscriber at the YouTube channel for any length of time then you obviously know how often I use GF Bisquick in my baked goods.  Over the past two years the question I've been asked most often is what to substitute if you can’t get access to Betty Crocker’s easy to use baking mix.  This blog post covers not only the gluten free Bisquick copycat recipe it also includes my philosophy for converting some of my old recipes to a gluten free version.

When I started my gluten free journey I began looking over my cake and muffin recipes and using GF Bisquick as a flour replacement.  If the original recipe called for wheat flour and a leavening agent like baking soda or baking powder, I tried substituting the flour for an equal measure of gluten free Bisquick and then eliminating the leavening agents and salt that were called for in the original recipe since they were already included in the baking mix itself.

The first recipe I tried this with was my Chocolate Walnut Banana Bread. The end result was outstanding. I moved on to a Blueberry Loaf Cake with an Orange Glaze and was shocked with how delicious it was. Then fall arrived and I made a delicious batch of Walnut Streusel Sweet Potato Muffins.  A few weeks later while I was still on the walnut kick, I made a gooey Apple Walnut Upside Down Cake.  At one point I got into a really quirky frame of mind and made a coffee cake I dubbed the Elvis since it was inspired by that famous sandwich he used to eat. It was a banana peanut butter coffee cake topped with a peanut butter glaze and crumbled crispy bacon. That one was a uniquely delicious creation.

The point I'm trying to make here is that it really isn't so difficult to make your old cake recipes using gluten free Bisquick.  I've successfully used the mix as a cup for cup replacement as long as you leave the leavening agents and salt out of the original recipe.
Below you’ll find the recipes for both my fine baking gluten free flour blend the gluten free Bisquick copycat.  Happy Baking Everyone!

  • 2/3 cup rice flour
  • 1/3 cup potato starch

  1. Do you think this would work with brown rice flour? I am trying to stay away from all the "white stuff" and my doc recommended brown rice flour instead of rice flour.

    1. I imagine that it would would but since I have not tried it I'm not 100% sure. If you try it I hope that you'll report back and let me know.

  2. Thank you for all the YT videos and recipes here. My mom has diabetes but she can't stand eating salad and fruit due to her mouth sensitivity from her other medications. I can use many of your recipes. Brown rice flour would work because it is still rice, the recipes will just taste slightly nuttier and not as "white" as with using rice flour.

    1. Thanks Chandy. I wish your mom well on her journey as she battles a chronic ailment. That's awesome information about the brown rice flour. I think it's more nutritious too because the bran layer is still intact before grinding.

  5. Hmmm, I wonder if I could substitute rice flour with almond flour, xanthan gum with arrow root powder...? I need to investigate this. Awesome recipe!
