When it comes to pancakes, my household is rather kinda picky. We definitely prefer these homemade ones to the boxed kind, they have awesome flavor and they’re light and fluffy.
Best Pancake Mix EverIn case you’re trying to figure out how much this makes, This recipe is the equivalent to approximately to two average sized boxes of store-bought pancake mix. It stores well and can be doubled too.
10 cups flour
2 1/2 c powdered milk
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c double acting baking powder
2 Tbsp salt
Here’s the simple trick for getting achieving the best mix, Sift all ingredients together. If you don’t like to sift, you can measure them all into a kitchenaid mixer bowl and use the whisk attachment to blend them for 3-4 minutes. It works just as well as sifting without the effort.
Prepare a Normal batch:You’ll Need:
2 Cups of homemade pancake mix (as listed above)
1 c water
2 Tbsp oil
combine the ingredients in a bowl and mix, if you prefer your pancakes slightly thinner add a Tablespoon or two of extra water.
If you don’t have any eggs on hand, it can be omitted, but you’ll need to add 1/4 cup of water in its place.Photo Credit © Can Stock Photo Inc. / margouillat

Can you substitute powder buttermilk for the milk? I have a biscuit mix I make and I use the dry buttermilk in it and it’s great. If the substitution can be made how much dry buttermilk would we use?

Cool, I attempted at one point and tasted horribly!!
What if I dom have dry milk? Is there anything else I could substitute it with??
- July 26, 2014 at 10:00 pm #456742Would this be a good substitute for bisquick? I use bisquick often in recipes like chicken and dumplins…would this work?

this will be great with my home made vanilla syrup thank you.

I’m so glad I found this recipe! My granddaughters love pancakes, and it drives me crazy when my daughter buys the frozen kind. I had a recipe for a mix I used several years ago, but have lost the recipe.I’m definitely going to try this. Could I use it to make waffles, and what ingredients would I need to add?

Gotta give this a try. Thanks for posting

Not really, this one is just for pancakes, waffles. Here is a copycat Bisquick mix:
- August 3, 2014 at 6:52 pm #457196A few things: ( We have used this mix for years & it’s a staple in our house now.. so here are some experiences with it:)
If you don’t have powdered milk – Just use the same mix, omit the powdered milk and use milk when you make the pancakes up. (about 1/4 cup milk) and the rest water per 2c mix used.
1/4 c liquid milkThis recipe works great for waffle (irons). However, if your waffle maker is a Belgian waffle iron, it takes more batter than regular size waffles.
3/4 to 1c water. (depending on how thin you like your pancake batter.)
From Pancakes to Biscuits – this would even work for dumplings!Per 2 1/2 cups pancake mix, cut in 1/4c to 1/3c cold or frozen grated butter
2 tsp of baking powder
1 Tbsp Lemon juice
1/4c to 1/3rd cup of water. (or more, depending on how dry it is, up to 1/2 c water or so)
Mix until just moistened.. -not wet- and, a bit crumbly is alright! Roll out or form and bake at 425-450 for 8 to 12 mins.
More BiscuitsHere is a really simple biscuit recipe though:
2 c flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2c butter or margarine cut in
1 Tbsp of Lemon Juice (or vinegar) into a 1c liquid measure cup.
Fill with milk to the 3/4 c line. (This sours the milk, similar to buttermilk)To this you can add 1/2 c shred cheese.. or a dash of herbs to make it savory.Quote:can you substitute powder buttermilk for the milk?
absolutely you could! i would suspect the same exact amount would be used. for normal reconstitution of 1 cup of powdered milk, it is 4 Tbsps powder to 1c water.
If Powdered buttermilk is the same ‘mix’ on reconstitution, then you could use it in substitution for regular powder milk in this recipe. Even if it is slightly different, I can see it easily working.
