Big Batch Pancake Mix
Serve up your stacks tall or short with butter, syrup, jam, peanut butter or nutella. However you serve them you will be the breakfast hero! Cooking these ahead of time is easy work for an afternoon and saves an infinite amount of minutes on busy mornings. Kids can pop their stack in the microwave and then eat these out of hand, with a syrup dipper or traditionally.

Today I am sharing my favorite recipe for homemade pancake mix that you can use to batch up, mix up and cook up a ton of fresh, homemade pancakes for your family before school starts back up again! This mix is delicious. It makes a fluffy, tender pancake that you will love! The secret here is the buttermilk powder! It gives this flapjack extra special flavor and your kids are going to gobble them up!
Yes, pancake mix is inexpensive. Yes, you can buy it at the store already made for you, but do you know what's in it? Not to mention the fact that you have almost everything you need to make this mix already. All purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, sugar and buttermilk powder. The last ingredient there, is easy to source and available in most grocery stores or online. I will leave a link to a shopping list so you can source the same ingredients I used today!
Mixing up this big batch pancake mix is super easy and you can get your kids involved! This recipe makes enough for four batches of pancakes when using two cups of mix. The rest of the formula is simple. For every cup of mix you want to use one cup of milk or water and one egg along with two tablespoons of melted butter. Then go to town cooking up these delicious breakfast treats!
You can keep this in a jar like I do or you can divvy the mix up into batch size bags and vacuum seal them up along with the instructions so anyone can make pancakes when they want to. You can also cook up a ton of pancakes all at once, freeze them on a cookie sheet and then stack them accordingly in serving size portions and vacuum seal them as well. These will keep fresh, vacuum sealed for up to a year. If you want to just pop these in freezer bags they will stay fresh in the freeze for up to three months. Just be sure to use freezer bags.
I made my batter today with one cup of mix, one cup of milk and one egg along with two tablespoons of melted butter. Wisk everything together and you're good to go. Pancake batter is better when it is a little lumpy. So keep that in mind.
To make mix, combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl and whisk for several minutes to ensure proper distribution of all components.
Transfer to an airtight container or large mason jar with a tight fitting lid and store for up to six months.
This recipe makes four batches of pancakes that will make between 18 and 20 pancakes.
To make pancakes: Combine mix with milk or water and eggs and whisk together until blended. A few lumps are actually preferred in this batter. Allow batter to rest for five minutes while heating up griddle.
When ready to make, wipe oil over griddle using a paper towel or silicone baking brush. This will ensure even distribution of oil as well as even browning of the pancakes.
Pour batter by ¼ cupful (a gravy ladle works well here) onto the griddle and allow to cook until bubbles begin to form across the top of the pancakes. Then you will know it is time to flip them.
Using a broad, thin spatula, flip the pancakes and allow to cook for 30 seconds to one minute on the second side. Remove from griddle onto a baking sheet in your oven that has been set to 250 degrees. This will keep the pancakes warm until they are all ready to serve.
Serve with butter, syrup and or jam.
This can easily be made in a much larger batch, simply double or triple this recipe so you always have pancake mix at the ready!
You can also portion this mix up into bags and vacuum seal with instructions on the bag so everyone knows how to make these when they want them. Remind them to clean up their mess!
Drop by 1/4 cup portions onto a hot griddle that has been oiled. I used coconut oil spray. You don't want to use butter here because it burns. Then allow the pancakes to cook until the surface is covered in small bubbles that have burst. When this happens and the surface looks dull, it's time to flip! Cook the other side for about one minute and remove.
