Mornings can be busy at our house and I imagine your house may be the same way. I like to try and send my kids out the door with something warm and healthy in their belly’s. Sometimes we don’t get the chance because we hit snooze on the alarm one too many times. To help with the morning rush, I like to have a Homemade Pancake Mix on hand.
It’s so easy to make a large batch and store in a container. Then all you have to do is add some water to a cup or two of the Homemade Pancake Mix in a bowl, until the pancake mix reaches a good consistency (I like a little thinner pancake batter).
Then cook the pancakes on a heated griddle or on the stove top like you normally would. This way you have great homemade pancakes without having to go to the hassle of whipping them up every morning for breakfast…or dinner :).
I like not having to worry about a lot of preservatives that you can find in the store bought pancake mix and I can control what goes into the pancakes. You can also use this mix as a base to creating other flavors of pancakes.
Homemade Pancake Mix
5 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups powdered milk
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup baking powder
1 tablespoon salt
- Combine flour, powdered milk, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; stir to blend.
- Store mixture in an airtight container and use within 8 months.
Looking for a great container to hold your pancake mix in? I used these Storage Dispensers for mine. I also use the same container in a larger size for our flour and sugar.
