Pancake Mix--Monday Mix Up

Pancake mix

I decided to start a new feature here. Every monday, I'll be posting a new recipe for you. It's a different kind of recipe though, a mix recipe that you make in bulk and store, then you can make different recipes with them! yay for something new!! :)

This week, I've got a pancake mix for you. BUT, it makes more than just pancakes. it can make waffles, german pancakes (also known as puff pancakes). . . .and a few more that I'll save for later. Actually, I'm saving all but the pancakes for later. I have to make sure you will come back!!

And on that note, THANK YOU to all my new visitors who have stopped by!! I've loved reading your comments and checking out your blogs. :)

Now, let's get started on our Monday Mix Up.

You'll need flour, sugar, dry milk powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. The greatest thing about these mixes is that you can mix up a larger or smaller batch, depending on how much you'd like to have on hand.

dump all your ingredients in a LARGE bowl. Like the biggest you have. I have quite a few large bowls, because we LOVE popcorn in our house, and need the big popcorn bowls.

Then use a whisk and mix together everything good and well.

Pour it into a container and label it with the name of your mix and when it expires. This mix will last about 6 months. Make sure your store it in a cool, dry place.

Now, on to make the pancakes. In a bowl, put 1 egg, 2 Tbsp oil, and 1 cup water. You might need a litte before, depending on our thick the batter is.

Whisk it all together.

add and 1 1/2 cups of your pancake mix.
then mix all that together.

Grease up you skillet and get ready to cook your pancakes! This is my new cast-iron skillet my brother got me for Christmas. so far I love it!!

I poured about 1/2 cup of batter and it made a good size pancake.

And I stink at flipping pancakes, but that's besides the point!!

Courtsey of:
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup dry milk powder
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 tsps baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
Mix together all the ingredients in a large bowl. A whisk does well to make sure all the ingredients are well mixed. This will make about 5-6 cups dry mix. Store in a container with a tight fitting lid. Label the container with the mix name and the date it needs to be used by (6 months).

Recipe courtesy:
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 1 1/2 cups pancake mix
  • syrup and other desired toppings

Mix together egg, water, and oil. Add the pancake mix and blend it all up. Preheat a pan with oil and pour about 1/2 cup of batter per pancake. Cook for a few minutes, until bubbles form on the top. flip the pancake and cook for about 1 minute longer. Makes about 6-8 pancakes. Serve with toppings of your choice!


  1. Can't wait to try this. I love pancakes. I especially like to put just a little bit of nutmeg in them. I think I'll add a bit to the mix when I make it. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. I so have to try this. My kids are nuts for pancakes, and I've just never found a "from scratch mix" before (I know that doesn't sound right, but I think you know what I mean). Thanks for the recipe!
