How Can You Use Buttermilk Baking Mix?

Some uses for buttermilk baking mix include oven-baked chicken and fresh berry cobbler. Both recipes are available on and call for Bisquick Classic Buttermilk Baking Mix, but a homemade baking mix can substitute for Bisquick.

To make crispy oven-baked chicken, heat oven to 425 F, and melt 1 tablespoon butter or margarine in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish in the hot oven. In a large bowl, combine 2/3 cup baking mix with 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika, 1 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Completely coat 3 pounds of bone-in, skin on chicken pieces in the dry mix. Place the chickens skin-side down in the baking dish and bake for 35 minutes. Turn the chicken and continue baking for 15 minutes or until juices run clear when the thickest pieces are cut.

For fresh berry cobbler mix 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon cornstarch in a 2-quart sauce pan. Stir in 4 cups of fresh berries, 2 tablespoons water and 1 teaspoon lemon juice. Heat the mixture to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly, and boil for one minute. Pour berry mixture into 8- or 9-inch glass baking dish.

Stir together 1 cup of buttermilk mix, 1/4 cup milk, 1 tablespoon sugar and 1 tablespoon melted butter until a loose dough forms. Drop the dough by spoonfuls onto the berry mixture.

Bake at 425 F for 15 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before serving.
