I love the convenience of store-bought pancake mix, but sometimes I'm creeped out by ingredients listed on the box. Without giving up the idea of "instant" pancakes, it's easy to make your own ready-to-go pancake mix!
This recipe yields three batches of pancakes. 1 cup of dry mix will yield 3 large or 6 smaller pancakes. Use the entire recipe to produce about 10 large pancakes or 18-20 smaller pancakes.
3 cups of white or whole wheat flour (or go half-and-half)
1 tsp salt
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1.5 tablespoons baking powder
Mix the above ingredients together in a bowl. Use immediately, or store in an airtight container or mason jars. Tip: this mix, along with a recipe on a gift tag, makes a great gift when packaged in a mason jar.
Delicious ways to flavor these pancakes include:
- 1/2 cup blueberries per 1 cup dry mix
- 1/2 cup raspberries per 1 cup dry mix
- 1 tsp cinnamon per 1 cup dry mix
- 1/2 cup chopped apples + 1 tsp cinnamon per 1 cup dry mix
Per one cup of dry mix: combine dry pancake mix, 1 egg, 1/4 cup canola oil, and 1 1/2 cups milk; mix well. If mix is a bit too dry, add a little more milk. Add in any desired mix-ins. Pour onto greased griddle and flip pancakes when bubbles start to surface on cooking pancake.
