Thanks - and thanks to Diane for the recipe
Bisquick and other baking mixes are just flour with leavening added in... a little baking soda, salt, oil, and dextrose... so, technically, you could use Bisquick with any recipe that calls for flour and leavening... or even one that doesn't call for leavening, for that matter, it would just rise or "puff" up a bit.
Assuming that this bake mix recipe can be used in place of Bisquick (or Pioneer or other baking mix), I can give you the recipes on the bisquick box. You could also go to Bisquick.com... they probably have tons of recipes on their site.
Pancakes: 2 cups Bisquick, 1 cup milk, 2 eggs
Stir until blended. Pour by slightly less than 1/4 cupfuls onto hot greased griddle. Cook until edges are dry. Turn; cook until golden. Makes 14 pancakes.
For thinner pancakes: use 1 1/2 cups milk.
For melt in your mouth pancakes: Stir in 1 T. sugar, 2 T. lemon juice and 2 t. baking powder.
(Personally, I like my batter a little thinner so I add a little more milk until it looks right... but adding as much as an additional 1/2 cup is too thin for my tastes.)
Dumplings: 2 cups Bisquick Mix, 2/3 cup milk
Stir ingredients until soft dough forms. Drop by spoonfuls onto boiling stew; reduce heat. Cook uncovered 10 minutes. Cover and cook 10 minutes. Makes 10 dumplings.
(This is the kind of dumpling that I don't like, although many people do,... big balls of chewy dough... ick... )
There are other recipes printed on the box; you can probably find all of these on their web site.
