Carbquik Recipes
There are so many good recipes for Carbquik on the Carbquik sticky - but they're BURIED! So I thought I'd copy them and start a thread for just recipes. Could one of the administrators please make this a sticky? I mostly cut and pasted full recipes. Feel free to add.

Here's the first one.

Impossible Bacon Pie (Dianna)

12 slices bacon, crisply fried and crumbles
1 cup shredded natural Swiss cheese
1/3 cup chopped onion
2 cups milk
1 cup Bisquick
4 eggs
1/4 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease pie plate, 10X1 1/2", sprinkle bacon, cheese and onion in the pie plate. Beat remaining ingr. until smooth, 15 seconds in blender on high speed or 1 minute with hand beater. Pour into pie plate. Bake until golden brown, and knife inserted halfway between center and edge comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting. Refrigerate any remaining pie. 6 servings

Blackberry Cobbler (PaminKY)

I used the Cut Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe on the side on the Carbquik Box:

2 cups Carbquik
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/8 cup water (2 tbs)

I added some liquid splenda to taste.

Place dry mix in bowl. On low speed, slowly add liquid until dough forms. Do not overwork dough. Roll out to 1/2 inch thickness kind of in the shape of your pan but longer on the sides. I used and 8x8 glass pan. Melt some butter in your pan
and then place dough in pan with the the sides draping over the edge.


3-4 cups berries (I used frozen blackberries)
Splenda to taste
Diabetisweet to taste
Xanthan gum
Lorann blackberry flavoring

I put the blackberries with all the juice in a saucepan on med heat. Added liquid splenda and a some Diabetisweet ( if you don't use much it doesn't cause tummy problems but the mixture of sweeteners does help). I added a bit of Lorann blackberry flavoring just to enhance the flavor but it is not necessary. The blackberries I used grow wild in the back of our property and sometimes the wild blackberries don't have as much flavor as the ones you buy in the grocery. I put the xanthum gum in a salt shaker and then just sprinkled on the mixture and let cook just a bit until it gets thicker but not too thick. I didn't measure the xanthum gum but just added a bit at a time until the right consistency. You just want to get rid of some of the wateriness but you want don't want to drain off the juice from the fruit, too much flavor in that.

I then poured the blackberry mixture into the glass pan on top of the biscuit dough. I then folded the draped sides over on top of the filling, put a few thin cut pieces of butter across the top, sprinkled a bit of granular splenda on top and then baked at 350 until browned.

Sorry to be so vague. I plan on trying a rhubarb cobbler as soon as I find out it rhubarb is legal or not.

Dumplings (Chef Greg)

2 cups Carbquik
2 egg yolks beaten
1/3 cup half & half
Pinch of salt
Chicken broth or stock as needed

Stir Carbquik egg yolks salt half and half till mixed, add just enough broth or stock to form a soft dough. Let rest 10 minutes. If dough seems to stiff, work a little more broth or stock into the dough before use.

Drop by spoonfuls into hot simmering broth or liquid, reduce heat. Cook uncovered 10 minutes, Cover and cook gently 10 additional minutes. Pay close attention to cook these gently, rapid cooking and these like most any dumpling will fall apart.

For added flavor, season the dough before cooking with salt and pepper, or sprinkle a little chili powder into the dough.

This should make about 10 dumplings

Pie crust you ask (Chef Greg)

2 1/2 Cups CarbQuik
6 oz by weight of fat of choice, lard shortening or softened butter
Ice cold water as needed appox, 1/4 cup
pinch salt

Rub the fat into the CarbQuik very quickly, using a light touch. Tossing the fat and CarbQuik together until a coarse crumb is reached.

Mix together the ice water and salt, and sprinkle it over the CarbQuik mixture gradually. Combine using a few strokes until a mass forms. Gently gather the dough into a smooth ball. Flatten into a disk. Divide the dough in two pieces. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap, and refrigerated for at least 2 hour-24 hours. This process conditions the dough by allowing the CarbQuik time to absorb moisture and for the gluten to relax.

Pie dough will keep for 2-3 days in refrigerator or 1 month in the freezer.

Impossible Egg Nog Pie (abbymommy)
(or whatever flavor you try)

1/2 cup Carbquik
1tsp vanilla
1/2 cup Davinci Egg Nog syrup
3 Tablespoons melted butter
1 cup Hoods 2% milk
nutmeg to taste, maybe 1/2 tsp

Mix all ingedients in a container and blend (I use my Thunderstick hand blender) until mixed well

Pour into a greased pie pan, bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes or until top is slightly firm to the touch in the middle

I don't have exact carb counts on this, but it is similar to the other impossible pies except for the extra egg, so I am guessing about 2 net carbs per slice (1/8th of pie)

This came out DELICIOUS and actually separated into THREE layers, a very thin "crust", a custardy middle, and a nice upper breadier top.

It was like an egg custard but the flavor was unbelieveable with the egg nog syrup.

Honestly this Carbquik is amazing stuff, I am so pleased with it!

I am not even much of a baker or cook, but I am becoming one thanks to Carbquik - very easy to use

LC Modified Impossible Cheesecake (based on original 1980's Bisquick version) (MizLiz)

3/4 cup Splenda
1/2 cup CarbQuik mix
2 eggs
2-8 oz packages cream cheese, softened and cut into 1 inch cubes
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel

Heat oven to 350. Grease (spray Pam) a 9" pie plate. Place all ingredients in blender container. Blend on high for about 3 minutes, stopping occcasionally to stir, until smooth. Pour into plate. Bake just until puffed and center is dry, about 30 minutes. (Do not overbake) Spread Cheesecake Topping carefully over top; cool. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 3 hours. Serve w/fresh fruit is desired.

Cheescake Topping: mix 1 cup sour cream, 2 tablespoons splenda and 2 teaspoons vanilla.

I plugged this into ****** and get about 50 net carbs for the entire pie. I say "about" because I haven't yet added splenda and the bake mix to my custom foods for exacts yet. Just added from the box labels. So carbs will vary by serving size. I think mine ended up at about 10 servings for 5 net carbs

LC Modified Impossible Quesadilla Pie (MizLiz)

2 cans chopped green chilies, drained
4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups milk (Carb Countdown)
1 cup CarbQuik mix
4 eggs

Heat oven to 425. Grease pie plate. Sprinkle chilies and cheese in plate. Beat remaining ingredients in blender for about 15 seconds. Pour into plate. Bake until knife inserted between center and edge comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool 10 minutes. Serve with sour cream and guacamole if desired.

lowcarbredhead, I love the "old" sausage balls with just Bisquick, cheese and sausage. Glad to hear your review. I did see a new version with some tweaks on the Bisquick web site. Sounded like good additions. I think it called for some milk, garlic powder and something else. Might want to check that out.

PATE A CHOUX (Chef Greg)

1/2 cup Butter
1 cup Water
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 cup Carbquik
4 Eggs
1. Combine the liquid, fat, salt, in a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil.
2. Add the Carbquik all at once. Over medium heat stir quickly for 1-2 minutes until the dough forms a ball and pulls from the sides of the pan.
3. Transfer to a mixing bowl with a paddle attachment. Mix on 1st speed until it has cooled slightly.
4. Switch to medium speed, and slowly add the eggs one by one.
5. Use the paste immediately, for maximum leavening.


1. Adjust consistency by adding eggs.
2. Bake @ 425F for the first 10 minutes, then 375F for approx. 20 minutes, or at 400F degrees overall.

The paste is ready to use, when all the eggs are absorbed and the paste looks smooth.

The paste should hold its shape when piped.
Using a pastry bag fitted with a 14mm round tip, pipe rounds to the size of a quarter onto a baking sheet lined with a baking mat or parchment paper.
Do not use greased pans, they will cause the paste to spread and flatten.

Using a bit of water, flatten the tops with a wet finger.

Preheat oven to 425 F.
Put baking sheet into oven and reduce the temperature to 375 F.
Bake until dry, firm and golden brown, about 30 minutes.
Leave on hot baking sheet in a warm area to cool. Product may collapse, if removed too soon or cooled too quickly

Another Carbquik Pizza recipe (Criosa)

I took an old Bisquick pizza recipe and used some suggestions from Chefgreg's roll recipe to create a delicious hand held pizza. My kids love it!

1 1/2 tablespoons yeast (I buy it by the bag)
3/4 c. warm water
1 tsp. sugar (I hate using this stuff)
2 1/2 c. Carbquik
1/4 tsp baking soda

Soften yeast in water and sugar, let sit for a few minutes. Add the mix and baking soda. Knead 2 minutes (I have a kitchen aid). Roll into 2 12" circles (actually I made one huge 16" pizza), using a little carbquik to keep it from sticking to the pin. You could probably pat it out into the pan, but mine has holes on the bottom, so I couldn't do that. Put on a greased pizza pan, brush with olive oil. Add pizza sauce and toppings. I let it sit out for about an hour, and it didn't rise much, so I don't know if it is necessary. Bake in 425 degree oven about 15 minutes.

note: I really don't know if you have to add sugar and baking soda - they are not in my original recipe. I'm hoping its true that the yeast consumes the sugar. Chefgreg said to use 1.5 times the yeast, so that's why I add 1 1/2 Tbsp. of it. I didn't notice a strong yeast flavor.

The dough is very easy to work with and I think it might make good bread sticks too.

*This is very very good. The kids fought over the last piece. Of course they're always up to a good fight.

Focaccia (Italian Garlic-Cheese Bread) (Chef Greg)

1 package dry yeast
1 cup warm water
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup olive oil
2 2/3 to 3 cups Carbquik
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Fresh or dried rosemary leaves

Dissolve yeast in water. Let stand until bubbly. Stir in sugar, salt and olive oil. Add 2 cups Carbquik and beat until elastic. Stir in 2/3 cup more Carbquik. Knead for 10 to 15 minutes. Put into a greased bowl. Turn over to coat well. Cover and let rise for 1 hour. Heat 1/4 cup oil. Add garlic and cook until soft and yellow. Set aside.

Punch dough down and knead briefly. Roll with a rolling pin and stretch to fit a greased 15 x 10-inch cookie sheet (with sides). Pierce dough with the end of a wooden spoon at 1-inch intervals. Drizzle garlic and oil all over. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and rosemary. Let rise, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 to 18 minutes.

Alternate Toppings
Rosemary: Just before baking, dimple the top of the dough and drizzle with 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil, sprinkle on 1 teaspoon sea salt or kosher salt and a sprinkling of fresh or dried rosemary leaves

Carbquik Biscuits - recipe and tips (Chef Greg)

First let me suggest that you simply use a wooden spoon and gently bring the ingredients together. Once the dough is just together, not sticky or wet, it actually will appear a little shaggy, with your hands bring the dough together and place this on a work surface. Now what I like to do now is simply pat and form the dough into a rectangle about 3/4 of an inch thick. Once you have this together use a biscuit cutter to cut out the biscuits. For that really brown top at this point you can brush the tops with melted butter. Now here is another fun little trick. once you have the dough together, divide it into 4 or 5 equal size pieces, now here it gets a touch tricky. Roll each piece out as thin as possible while still keeping the dough together. Once each piece is rolled out, stack each on top of the other, using just a sprinkle of water between each layer. Proceed to cut out the same size biscuits, what this does is create a biscuit similar to those Grands flaky layered biscuits from the pop open can. I wish you the best of luck.

BTW, you said Bisquick I hope your using Carbquik...

Carbquik Biscuits

2 cups Carbquik
2 ounces Butter, cold
1 tablespoon double acting baking powder
1 pinch salt
½ cup Buttermilk +/- as needed

Preheat oven to 450° F.
Cut the cold butter into the Carbquik with either a pasty cutter or two knives, till the mixture resembles course meal.
Add baking powder a pinch of salt and blend well.
Add the buttermilk to the dry mix.
Mix till dough forms and comes together, but do not over work the dough.
Work the dough either by hand or with a rolling pin to ¾ inch thickness. Cut 2” biscuits with either a round biscuit cutter or a drinking glass dipped in Carbquik
Bake in hot oven 8-10 minutes till biscuits are golden brown.

2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, cut into about 1/2-inch cubes and softened

1. Heat oven to 350ºF. Grease 9-inch pie plate.
2. Place milk, vanilla, eggs, sugar and the Bisquick(Carbquik) mix in blender. Cover and blend on high speed 15 seconds. Add cream cheese. Blend 2 minutes longer. Pour into pie plate.
3. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean; cool. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Cover and refrigerate any remaining cheesecake.

Topping: If desired, make topping and spread over top of completely cooled cheesecake. Stir together 1 cup sour cream, 2 tablespoons sugar ( used scant 1/4 teaspoon of Trish's Zero Carb Syrup Bas) and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Serve with fruit. (no fruit added but could have)

Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake (CarolynF)

Preheat oven to 350

1 cup Carbquik
3 ounces of softened cream cheese
1/2 Tbs. of butter
6 tsp. Splenda

Cut in the cream cheese and butter into the Carbquik and splenda until like coarse meal.

Then slowly add heavy cream..1 Tbs. at a time until you get
a nice soft..not too wet..dough.(sorry I didn't measure)..Maybe
about 3 Tbs...Mix gently until the dough forms a ball..

Then pat out dough into a 6 by 8 inch rectangle..on waxed paper.

1/3 cup sugar free raspberry jam or any flavor you like.

Down the middle of the dough..spread the jam so it forms an
inch wide stripe..Then fold the long side over the top of the
jam..Remove from waxed paper and place on a sprayed cookie
sheet..(I used Parchment paper to roll it out on and just placed
the parchment on the cookie sheet)..

Bake for about 25-30 minutes until golden brown..About 10 minutes before it is done, you can add some slivered almonds
to the top..

Cool and slice into 6 or 8 finger-sized pieces..

Yummy Pancakes (CarolynF)

1/3 cup Carbquik
2 tsp. Splenda
2/3 tsp. baking powder
tiny pinch of salt..

Mix this in a bowl..until mixed well.

In a small bowl beat one egg, add 2 Tbs. milk, and 1 Tbs. melted
butter..then blend into dry ingredients. I folded in some blueberries, too. If it's too dry, then add a touch more milk or cream.

This makes 2-3 pancakes..I fried them in a little macadamia nut
oil..Very, very good..
