I have wanted breakfast, but not for breakfast. I have wanted breakfast for dinner. I made stuffed french toast a couple of days ago, then I wanted pancakes. Fluffy on the inside, crisp and buttery on the outside, smothered in maple syrup. But, I have stopped buying mixes (well… mostly, I can’t do everything). I have never made pancakes from scratch before.
I started out looking for something I can make in big batches and keep in an airtight container for when the urge to make pancakes hits me. When I did an internet search for ‘home-made pancake mix’ I immediately had thousands of recipes right at my fingertips (Walt Disney said this would be possible one day). Its times like these I like to turn to the bible-esque pages of my Pillsbury Cookbook. It has all of my basic recipes, all with variations and serving suggestions; It really gets my cooking ideas flowing.
These cooked up perfectly. These are the kind of pancakes you dream of when you want to have pancakes. I only wish I had some bacon to go with them…. oh well, next time. I have made a huge batch of mix and have it in the pantry in a lovely glass jar (sorry, I didn’t take a picture). When we go camping I will bring the dry mix in zipper bags and will add the wet ingredients right to the bag.
I’m thinking if you try this recipe, you too will never by the premixed stuff again! Enjoy~
