I am not into buying baking mixes if I can easily make them at home, especially when I have all the ingredients already sitting in my pantry.   This Instant Pancake Mix recipe is one of our staples here at the Ranch.   The hubby loves pancakes and we make them several times a week and having this mix on hand makes it quick and we have less of a mess to clean up.

Have I told you the hubby always puts peanut butter on his pancakes?  Yep, as soon as I pull out the mix, he pulls out the peanut butter in anticipation.   But my favorite way to eat pancakes is with blueberry syrup.  Yep, just a little butter and some homemade blueberry syrup.

 

How to make Instant Pancake Mix:

Ingredients for the Mix:

  • 3 cups of flour, not self rising
  • 3 Tablespoons white sugar
  • 1/4 cup Baking Powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup shortening such as Crisco

Instructions for the Mix:

  • Add all dry ingredients in a large bowl
  • Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until the mixture resembles small crumbs
  • Store in a sealed container in your pantry

 

This mix can be stored in your pantry, no need to refrigerate, I have heard that if you exchange the white flour for whole wheat flour then it needs to be refrigerated, not sure why but just a heads up.  This mix makes easy pancakes or waffles by adding milk and eggs.

I agree with you on preferring to use what I already have in my pantry! This is so easy and convenient - I need to whip up a batch so I can get to flippin' some of my own pancakes! :D
