Make Your Own Pancake Mix
by Angela Billings

Several people have asked about making their own pancake mix in bulk so I have added this recipe and hope it is helpful to you. My children love pancakes but I must admit I buy the kind premixed in the box that I just add water. I get the mix at my local Save A Lot grocery store.

Basic Pancake Mix
(makes about 13 cups of dry mix)

10 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups nonfat dry milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup baking powder
2 tablespoons salt

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. Stir together to blend well. Place in a large container until ready to use or place in individual storage bags (2 cups in each bag). Store in cool, dry place for up to 8 months. Makes 13 cups of dry mix.

To Make The Pancakes:

2 cups of Basic Pancake Mix
1 egg, beaten
1 1/4 cups water or milk

Combine all ingredients; stirring just enough to moisten dry ingredients. Drop by spoonfuls onto a hot non-stick or greased griddle or fry pan. Turn when bubbles appear on the surface of the cakes. Cook until well browned. Makes about 12 to 16 pancakes depending on how small or large you want them.

To serve you can cut them with cookie cutters in shapes of the current season or holiday. To use the scraps that are left when you cut the shape out simply cut these in smaller pieces and arrange around the cutouts that way they get eaten and not wasted.
