For years I have wasted my money on boxed grocery store pancake mix, well no more! To be honest, I felt kind of silly when I found out how easy it was to just whip up a batch of homemade mix. I like to make a batch of this, then I label a reminder on my storage container on what to add when I need to mix up a batch of pancakes. My 5 year old is a pancake fanatic, so I make them often. Last time I actually doubled the recipe, it makes a pretty large amount though, so if you a smaller family, or not eating pancakes often, just stick with the regular batch size.
Let’s get started…
Dry pancake mix ingedients:
4 cups all purpose flour
3 tablespoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
To make pancakes:
1 cup pancake mix
1 cup milk
Dry Pancake Mix
1.Combine all ingredients. (You can easily double or triple this part)
2. Store tightly sealed in a dry place.
To Make Pancakes:
3. Preheat griddle or pan over medium high heat.
4. Combine 1 cup pancake mix with egg & milk.
5. Pour a scoop into pan and cook until bubbles on the surface of the pancake have popped (about 3-4 minutes) Flip and cook until underside is a light golden brown (another 1-2 minutes).
Each cup of dry pancake mix makes approximately 5 pancakes. You can probably substitute for brown flour, but pancakes might be more dense and not quite as fluffy.
Some of my favourite toppings : Pecans & Sliced Bananas, Strawberries, Peanut Butter & Banana.
Or try stirring these toppings right into the mix: Blueberries, Apples & Cinnamon, Chocolate chips, Mashed sweet potato (won’t be as fluffy, but easy way to sneak a veggie in for kids), Protein powder (not for kids).
Big thanks to my mother in law Rose for sharing this great recipe with me! Enjoy!
