Question Ever heard of CARBQUIK?

It's LOWCARB replacement for bisquick. I don't think it is LEGAL for South Beach...just curious if anyone knows about it or have used it? I heard about it on lowcarbfriends.com.

THanks
Debbie

We would have to see the list of ingredients to be sure.

Here is what I found on the internet:
Ingredients: Carbalose flour (enzyme-modified wheat, vital wheat gluten, wheat fiber, unbleached patent wheat flour, vegetable fiber, canola oil, salt, emulsifiers, enzymes, ascorbic acid, sucralose, calcium propionate), palm oil, buttermilk powder, baking powder, egg white powder, lecithin, salt, natural and artificial flavors.


Normally we want 100% whole wheat flour so I don't think this would be a good choice but I will let other chime in.

You'd be better to stick with real whole grain bread. It's be cheaper too!

I've used it before. Great product. I don't consider it beachy but I will use it occasionally since I purchased it before starting the SB WOE

I have lots of stuff I purchased before SBD...it got tossed. I just don't want to mess this up.

I would think you could make your own "Bisquick" type mix using your own ingredients at home. Those ingredients scream FRANKENFOODS to me...I don't think I want to eat anything that has been enzyme modified. Just my humble opinion.

Here's a recipe I collected somewhere along the way. Haven't tried it yet, but would love to hear if anyone does what they think.

Baking Mix

8 c. whole wheat pastry flour
5 T. baking powder
1 T. salt
1-1/2 c. dry powder milk
1 c. canola oil

Combine dry ingredients well in a large bowl. Cut in oil with fingers to make fine crumbs. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator. Makes 11 cups.

Hi-protein: In place of 8 c. flour, use 5 1/2 c. ww flour, 1 c. soy flour and 1 1/2 c. wheat germ.
Whole grain: In place of 8 c. flour, use 5 c. ww flour, 1 c. bran, 1 c. wheat germ and 1 c. oatmeal or oat flour, rye flour, or other whole grain flour.

To make biscuits:
3 c. baking mix (from above recipe)
2/3 c. milk or water
Optional: grated cheese, herbs or spices

Stir milk into mix just until moistened. Knead briefly on floured surface; roll or pat out to 1/2" thick and cut into biscuits. Bake at 450 for 10 minutes.

Drop biscuits: Use 1 c. milk and drop by spoonsful onto greased cookie sheet. Bake as above. Makes 18 2" biscuits.
I have found that I can substitute this baking mix one for one in Bisquick recipes if I reduce the oil to 1 c. I love this mix. I think these pancake recipes are fabulous!

Banana Pancakes

2 medium ripe bananas
2 T. Splenda
1 egg
1-1/3 c. milk
2-3/4 c. baking mix

Add the ingredients to your mixer in the above order. Make sure not to beat the mixture very long after you add the baking mix.

Cook like regular pancakes.

Apple Pancakes

2 c. apple, finely chopped (unpared)
2 T. Splenda
1 T. lemon juice
1 egg
1-1/3 c. milk
2 c. Bisquick

Add the ingredients to your mixer in the above order. Make sure not to beat the mixture very long after you add the baking mix.

Cook like regular pancakes.
Pumpkin Puff Pancakes

2 eggs
1 c. milk
1/2 c. cooked pumpkin
1-3/4 c. baking mix
2 T. Splenda
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. nutmeg
1 t. ginger
1/4 c. canola oil

1. Beat eggs in small mixer bowl on high speed five minutes or until thick and lemon colored. Stir in remaining ingredients.

2. Cook like regular pancakes.

Pickle, that's great!

Can you post it in the recipe forum, please? I know others will love it. That's basically exactly the type of ingredients in BisQuik, so it should work great, I would think. I use WW pastry flour often and it works great!
