Store bought pancake mix is easy to make and probably the most popular way that people make pancakes at home. The truth is, however, that it’s not difficult to make your very own homemade pancakes. To make things even easier in the future you can also make a large quantity of your mix to store in the cupboard. This makes it so the next time you make pancakes it will be just as easy as using a store bought mix.
What you need to make the mix:
- 10 cups of all-purpose flour (3 lbs.)
- 2 1/2 cups of instant nonfat dry milk
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1/4 cups of baking power
- 2 tablespoons of salt
Put all of these ingredients into a large bowl and mix them all together. Make sure they are evenly mixed so it looks uniform. Put the mixture in a sealed container and store it in a cool, dry place in your house. The mixture should stay good for six to eight months and will make about 13 cups of your pre-made mix.
To make your pancakes:
Use these ingredients-
- 2 cups of your newly made pancake mix
- 1 cup of water
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoon of oil
Mix all of the ingredients above in a large bowl with a wire whisk or a fork till it is smooth. Grease your pan and cook your pancakes over medium-high heat. Use about a ¼ cup of batter per pancake. This makes eight (4 inch) pancakes or four large waffles. Then just sit down and enjoy your very own pancakes at home.
