Homemade Pancake Mix Recipe

Ingredients for Pancake Mix:

  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 litre/quart mason jar

Instructions to make Pancake Mix:

Mix all ingredients together in a medium bowl.  Using a wide funnel, transfer the mix into the mason jar.  Secure with an airtight lid.  Label and store in a cool, dry place for use.  Make sure to have instructions handy for making pancakes - you can write directly on the mason jar or lid if you want.  Or print the recipe and tape to the inside of a cabinet door.

Ingredients to Make Pancakes from Mix:

  • 1 cup pancake mix
  • 1 cup milk or buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter, lard, or bacon grease
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup or melted honey
  • 1 egg
*Makes approximately 8 medium sized pancakes.

    Instructions to Make Pancakes:

    Measure all ingredients into a medium bowl and mix well.  Add 1/2 cup chocolate chips or blueberries, if desired.  Heat cast iron pan over medium heat and melt 1 to 2 tablespoons bacon grease, lard, or butter in the pan.  Once the fat is bubbling, pour in a 1/4 cup of pancake mixture into the pan.  Cook on first side until the first side is lightly browned.  Flip and cook second side until cooked through and browned.

    The first pancake is the "test" pancake.  If the batter is too runny, add 1 to 3 more tablespoons of mix to the batter and stir in well.  If batter is too thick, add a tablespoon or so of milk to the batter.

    Continue to cook pancakes one at a time until all cooked.  One cup of pancake mix makes approximately 8 medium sized pancakes.

    Let any leftover pancakes cool to room temperature before transfering them to an airtight container to store in the fridge.  Eat within 3 to 4 days.  Reheat in a toaster to make the pancake nice & crispy.
