Homemade Pancake Mix

Another gem from More-With-Less--this recipe is infinitely customizable and the pancakes it produces (or, at least, my current variation* of them) are light, fluffy, and yummy! (and much healthier and cheaper than their store bought counterpart mix makes) *I used 1 c. soy flour, 1 c. wheat germ, and 5 c. white whole wheat

For 2 pounds mix; makes approximately 4 batches of 12-15 pancakes each. (Amounts in parentheses are for 4 pounds mix.)
Combine in large bowl:
6 c. flour* (12 c.)
1 T. salt (2 T.)
6 T. baking powder (3/4 c.)
6 T. sugar (3/4 c.)
2 c. powdered milk (4 c.)

Mix well and store in airtight container.

To make pancakes:
Combine in bowl (let sit a few minutes after mixing; lumps are okay; add more milk if you like your pancakes thinner):
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 c. water
2 T. oil
1 1/2 c. pancake mix

Cook on greased skillet or griddle.

  • replace one third of flour with whole wheat flour, buckwheat flour, oatmeal, or rye flour and cornmeal
  • replace part or all of flour with white whole wheat (King Arthur makes a good one)
  • replace one sixth of flour with soy flour (adds extra protein)
  • add 1 c. wheat germ to 2 pounds recipe or 2 c. to 4 pounds recipe
