Serve Mini Cheddar Loaves

Mini Cheddar Cheese Loaves make a great gift too. In fact all mini loaves of bread make a great gift in my opinion. Wrap loves in colored cellophane wrap, tie loaves with a bow or butchers twine and you have a delicious gift. You can make mini loaves in any flavor. You can use single mini loaf pans, or use a four cavity mini loaf pan, which is what I have. Works great and I love it! One of the best gifts I ever received. (Thanks, Kim)

Brief History of Bisquick

Bisquick is a pre-mixed baking mix sold by General Mills under its Betty Crocker brand. It consists of flour, shortening, salt and baking powder. One cup of Bisquick can be substituted by a mixture of one cup of flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 2 1/2 tablespoons of lard or crisco cut into the flour mixture. Bisquick was officially introduced on grocers’ shelves in 1931. The slogan read.”90 seconds from package to oven.”

According to General Mills, Bisquick was invented in 1930 after one of the top sales executives met an innovative train dining car chef, on a business trip. After the sales executive complimented the chef on his deliciously fresh biscuits. The dining car chef shared that he used a pre-mixed biscuit batter on ice in his kitchen. This method enabled him to bake fresh biscuits quickly on the train everyday. Though first promoted for only baking biscuits, Bisquick was soon used to prepare baked goods from pancakes to dumplings to coffee cake.
