Pancakes with kids are just the best! I get a kiss when I prepare them for breakfast.
Although commercially prepared pancake mix are easy to prepare, they are too sweet for my taste. And I always have this dilemma wherein one box isn't enough, while two boxes are too much.
It would be easier If I can make pancakes in a rush but in just the amount I need.
Why not prepare your own pancake mix and have them in the pantry always. We need 5 simple ingredients and no refrigeration is needed. Just remember to write down the expiration date of your major ingredient- flour.
Pancakes in a rush
3 Cups All Purpose Flour
2 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3 Tablespoons sugar ( you can use less if you prefer)
3/4 teaspoon salt
Sift everything into a dry airtight container.
You can double or triple the ingredients and have it all in a large air tight container.
I always put a sign in my container that says:
For every 1 1/2 Cup add:
1/8 Cup melted butter
Mix them all together and rest the batter for 10 minutes before cooking ( sometimes I skip the resting).
Be ready for that kiss!
