When it comes to weekend breakfasts, one of our favorites around here is pancakes. It's hard to beat a nice fluffy pancake that's golden on the outside and tender inside. With lots of syrup of course!
While it's super easy to grab a box of store-bought pancake mix, add in an ingredient or two, it's just as easy to have your own HOMEMADE pancakes on the weekend when you do a little preparation ahead of time with this homemade pancake mix recipe.
This pancake mix recipe uses only 5 ingredients and will take you less than 5 minutes to mix together. Once you do, you'll have six servings of pancake mix to use whenever you're ready to cook them.
The recipe below makes 6 cups of mix, but you can double or triple the recipe and save yourself some time in the long run. When it comes time to making the pancakes, all you do is add an egg and a cup of milk to one cup of your homemade mix. Then you can say that you always make your own pancakes from scratch. Look at you, all home-cooky and all!
To store the mix, you can put it in any airtight container. I love the Rubbermaid Brilliance storage containers because they lock super well. Another option is to store in it Mason jars. You can even get big half gallon Mason jars that look really cool sitting on your kitchen counter.
Another awesome option is to make the pancake mix as a GIFT IDEA! Mix up the mix and put it in Mason jars or glass jars with a wire clamp and tie each with a bow.
To take your gift to the next level, we made these labels including the simple instructions for your gift recipient to make their pancakes. You can print the Homemade Pancake Mix labels HERE. I like to print them out on label paper and stick right to the jar, but you could also print on plain paper and glue to the front, or print on heavyweight paper and attach to the jar with a piece of twine.
