BSI – Pancake Mix!

Caitlin at Healthy Tipping Point is hosting Week 52 of BSI!  I am so happy I brought it back in January!  I love BSI because it stretches my imagination to use ingredients I might not be comfortable with.  Here are some of the BSI entries I’ve had in the past:

Cauliflower – Cauliflower Pizza Crust

Chickpeas – Broccoli Cheese Soup with Chickpeas

Chocolate – Best Cocoa Mix Ever!

Potato – Chipotle Pepper Black Bean Potato Salad

Sweet Potato – Sweet Potato Pillows swimming in Creamy Red Pepper Sauce (which reminds me I need to make this again!)

Figs – Prosciutto Purses Stuffed with Balsamic Fig Goat Cheese

Peanut Butter – Dog Treats!

Lime – Beef and Black Bean Empanadas with Cilantro Lime Dip (these turned out great too!)

Corn – Southwestern Egg Rolls

Avocado – Avocado and Crab Meat Bisque

Cabbage – Scampi con Salsa al Prezzemolo

Strawberries – Balsamic Strawberries with Ricotta Cream

Pumpkin – Baked Pumpkin Donuts with Cinnamon Honey Frosting

Wow, that’s a lot of recipes! 😀

But today’s challenge is Pancake Mix!  You just can’t make pancakes or waffles!  Yesterday I tried to make cheese beer bread, but it didn’t turn out very good.  I thought I would add a teaspoon of baking powder – but the end product had a metallic taste.  But I didn’t give up! 

Poor Man’s Cheese Beer Bread

  • 3 cups Bisquick
  • 8 ounces light beer (12 ounces turned out to be too much)
  • 1 cup shredded cheese ends

Heat oven to 375.  Put Bisquick in bowl, and add beer and stir just until incorporated.  Mix in cheese and put in bread pan – bake for 35-40 minutes.





It wasn’t too bad!  Tastes more like a biscuit loaf, than bread, but pretty good!  Hope you check out a couple of my other recipes above too! 😀
