Recipe from Jamie Cooks It Up!

***Before you make the mix, check the expiration date on your baking powder to be sure it is stated to last quite a while. Store the mix in your pantry for up to 3 months.***

6 C flour
4 T baking powder
1 1/2 t baking soda
1 1/2 t salt
6 T sugar

1 1/3 C pancake mix
1 C milk
1 egg, beaten
2 T butter, melted


1. To make the Pancake Mix find a large bowl and add 6 cups flour, 4 tablespoons baking powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and 6 tablespoons of sugar. 
2. Grab a fork and toss everything together. You want to be sure it gets well combined.  
3. Find a couple of quart sized canning jars (or a gallon sized ziploc bag) and carefully place the mix inside. 
4. Print off some handy labels and attach them to your jars, or ziploc bag.


1. Grab a small mixing bowl. Add 1 1/3 cup of pancake mix, and 1 cup milk. 
2. Crack and egg into a small bowl or measuring cup. (I reused the cup from measuring out the milk...why create extra dirty dishes, right!)  Take a fork and whisk the egg up until it's nice and frothy. Add it to the bowl. Whisk the ingredients together just until combined. 
3. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter and add them to the bowl. Whisk them around until everything is well combined. 
4. Heat up a skillet and rub just a bit of butter over the top of it. 
5. Pour the batter out (about 1/4 cup for each pancake) onto the hot griddle. Allow the pancakes to become golden along the bottoms. Flip them over and let them cook on the other side as well. Serve them up hot with butter and maple syrup.
