?Carbquick type copycat mix?

Has anyone ever seen a recipe that can be used in place of carbquick?

oops dumb question....I just checked out the ingredients and see it is similar to something like a dreamfields pasta....it can't really be duplicated.

have you used carbquick with such resounding success that you WANT to copy it?

depending on your application, there are a lot of baking mixtures that work better, in my estimation. they aren't quite so "white flour" but they also don't taste weird and have that really creepy texture.

I have to disagree with you on the carbquik. I have used carbquik in quite a few applications with great results. The best low carb pancakes I have ever eaten were made with carbquik. I have also made some really good donuts and cakes with carbquik.

To each his own I guess.

I see the OP has already answered their own question.

Totally agree here with Gina. Carbquik works so well in so many recipes and I have never found a problem with the taste either.

I just wanted to add, some other great uses for carbquik. I wish there was a copycat recipe for it, but I have never heard of one.

Cannoli Pastries-Thanks beeb!!

Graham Crackers-Thanks KevinPA!!

Chocolate Mayo Cupcakes-Thanks Cap57!!

Breading... I use it as a coating for oven baked chicken and it's delicious-Thanks LindaSue!!

Cookies & Scones

Brownie Torte-Thanks Carolyn!!

I know everyone's tastes are different, but there are some of us that like some things made with Carbquik. I agree that it isn't good in a lot of applications, like dumplings I made, great texture but the taste of Carbquik was very pronounced in them, although they did curb the craving for dumplings for me.

I've had GREAT luck making a copycat Bisquik using Kevinpa's 3rd and final flour mix. I make up big batches and keep it on hand now and use it a lot. It's a little higher in carbs than Carbquik, but tastes so much better.
Here's the link to the thread that has the recipe:
