How to Make Your Own Pancake Mix

Pancakes don't need to be a special weekend morning treat. When you make them from a mix rather than from scratch, the time - and mess - associated with making this dish is dramatically reduced. When you purchase pancake mix, however, you have little control over the final result. The mix may not contain your preferred ratio of ingredients or it may even contain items you prefer to avoid. Instead of purchasing one of these mixes, make your own at home.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • 1 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 to 6 tbsp sugar
  • Large bowl
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 tbsp vegetable oil or melted butter

  1. 1

    Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Whisk them together until they are thoroughly blended. Use anywhere from 2 to 6 tbsp of sugar depending on how sweet you wish the final product to be.

  2. 2

    Transfer the mixture to an airtight container. You can store it for later use or give it away as a gift.

  3. 3

    Combine the pancake mixture with the wet ingredients when you are ready to use it. Blend it well, and then use as normal to make pancakes.

Tips and warnings

  • You can add dry flavouring ingredients, such as chocolate chips, to the pancake mixture if you wish.
  • To make buttermilk pancakes, replace the milk in the recipe with buttermilk.
