It’s super easy to make your own DIY Homemade Pancake Mix. It only takes 5 minutes to put together and then is just as easy to use as a box mix- but BETTER!
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 and cook – it’s just as easy to have your own HOMEMADE pancakes on the weekend.
All you need is a little preparation ahead of time ONCE to whip up a batch of this homemade pancake mix recipe to give you a bunch of weekends of easy-to-make pancakes!
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 batches 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!
You can also use the mix to make lots of other pancake variations. Here are three of my favorites:
Strawberry Pancakes with Cream Cheese Glaze are perfect for weekend brunch, Mother’s Day or any special breakfast. The recipe shows how to make the pancakes from scratch, but starting with your newly made mix is easier.
Another super easy option for using your pancake mix is to make sheet pan pancakes. This blueberry banana sheet pan pancakes recipe is extra delicious!
And if you want to get a hearty breakfast you can hold in your hand, your pancake mix is perfect for making Copycat McDonald’s McGriddles!
How to Store Homemade Pancake Mix:
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.
If you decide to make a huge batch of mix, you can even put it in freezer bags and store it in the freezer for up to two years.
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 made of colorful ribbon.
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, punch a hole in the corner and attach to the jar with a piece of ribbon or bakers twine.
