Homemade PANCAKE & WAFFLE MIX: The frugal farm girl's DIY ready-made mix series.

Ready-made mixes: Homemade goodness made simple, one jar at a time.

Homemade pancakes from scratch. Who has time for that? You do! That's right. When your pantry is stocked with your own homemade pancake and waffle mix, you're always prepared to whip up a made-from-scratch breakfast for your family. And you can feel confident in what you're serving, because you know exactly what's in your mix: Good stuff. Nothing more, nothing less. 

I'm excited to bring you this pancake and waffle mix. It's one of my favorite ready-mades to keep in my pantry. This one is golden. It makes crazy good pancakes, full of whole grain goodness and tasty flavor. Once you see how easy it is to make this mix, you won't want to go back to using store bought. So put on an apron, and let's get mixing!

How to make the mix

In a large bowl, mix the following dry ingredients together with a whisk until thoroughly blended:

2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 1/2 cups white flour
1 1/4 cups powdered milk
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon salt

Store the mixture in a one and a half gallon-size canister, or another air-tight container. Use within six months.

How to use the mix

When you want to make pancakes or waffles, simply mix together:

1 1/2 cups of your homemade mix
1 1/4 cups milk (1 1/2 for waffles)
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 egg, lightly beaten (2 for waffles)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Use a 1/4 cup to measure your batter onto and oiled griddle (I love the even heating of a cast iron griddle). Cook over LOW heat. (This is the trick to perfect golden perfection when making pancakes--LOW heat). If making waffles, use a 1/3 cup to pour the batter for each section in your waffle iron

TIP: For an added homemade flare, try serving your pancakes and waffles with homemade strawberry syrup! It isn't hard to make, and it lasts a really long time in the refrigerator. 

Don't forget your FREE PRINTABLE LABELS! Each mix post in this series comes with a link to a free downloadable page of 8 labels and instructions to attach to your homemade mixes. These labels are simple and easy to read, and done to look a bit retro (which I love) with their lettering and color scheme. You can print your labels onto white card-stock, cut them out, and use double-sided tape to stick them to your jars of mixes. Or, keep it super simple and print your labels onto this sticker paper by Avery. Just cut them out and stick them right to your jars. Enjoy!
