Pancake Mix

The best mix I have come across and a staple in our house:

8 Cups unbleached flour
6 Tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons salt

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl, mix well. Transfer to a large container with lid. May be stored in the pantry for up to 6 months.

*Sometimes I use half unbleached flour and half whole wheat flour.

To make pancakes:

Place 2 1/3 cups pancake mix in a large bowl. In another bowl, whisk together 2 eggs, 1 3/4 cups milk* (warmed a little) , and 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter (melted). Cook on skillet or griddle with butter

Other Ideas:

*Use buttermilk if on hand for extra tasty pancakes
*For a nutritional boost add in a Tablespoon of Flaxseed meal
*mash a banana and add to batter - yummy!
* add a little unsweetened applesauce.
