Like Bisquick, But Better!

I am a relentless thrift shopper and deal scavenger. And because I am unable to resist good deals, I sometimes buy things I don’t really need. Like jars, for instance. Pretty, see-through sealed jars that were on sale.

And, thanks to Pinterest, I have now filled these jars with breakfast items, like Cheerios and pancake mix. Yes, pancake mix–no more Bisquick! (Unless you like Bisquick. I know I do.)

But if you’re looking for something a little more homestyle, here’s some premade pancake mix that can be reconstituted into the perfect fluffy Sunday breakfast. Or, given as a gift in those cute Mason jars the way so many Pinterest users seem to have success with.

Enjoy!

Instant Pancake Mix:

4 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoons baking soda

1 tablespoons sugar

dash salt

Any spices/seasonings you desire

Combine all with a whisk in a large bowl. Transfer to airtight container and keep in cool, dry place.

To reconstitute:

Combine 1 cup of milk and 1 egg. Mix in pancake mix gently, careful not to over-mix. This is good for the full 4-cup recipe above.

Pour onto hot, buttered griddle and cook until golden on both sides. If desired, stir in mix-ins, like chocolate chips or fruit. Serve warm with butter, syrup or whatever suits your fancy!
