BASIC PANCAKE MIX RECIPE
Are you wondering what the best pancake mix brand is?
Looking for a basic pancake mix that everyone will love? And a recipe that is free from preservatives and is light and fluffy?
This homemade pancake mix is so easy to make, inexpensive and turns out fluffy pancakes every time.
Pancake mixes are so convenient, but some of them are just not that great tasting. Would you agree? So I was shocked when on a camping trip, I found out the most delicious, fluffy pancakes were made from a mix.
But....not just any kind of mix. This homemade basic pancake mix recipe with this amazing buttermilk syrup recipe on top. These pancakes were just as easy to make as using a Krusteaz or Bisquick mix, but had no weird after-taste and were still super fluffy and so good!
Krusteaz pancake mix ingredients are very similar to this recipe, but you'll love the taste of these pancakes so much better. You'll need:
- dry milk
- baking powder
Krusteaz Pancake Mix Directions
Homemade pancakes are not complicated to make. Pancakes only require a few basic dry ingredients plus milk, oil, and eggs. Combining all the dry ingredients into a basic pancake mix means you can enjoy a hot, homemade breakfast quickly whenever you want!
To make the mix, combine the dry ingredients together. Store in an air-tight container.
To make homemade pancakes, add water, oil, and eggs to the Krusteaz pancake mix. Cook on a hot griddle.
