    Pancake Mix

    I recently saw a plastic bottle supposedly containing pancake mix. The label said just add egg and milk. So ... if I had to provide the egg and milk what was in the bottle - flour!

    plus baking powder, maybe some kind of fat. Maybe sugar and a bit of salt.

    I always get "complete" pancake mix, just add water, 1/2 cup makes just enough for me for breakfast.

    I don’t make pbcakes for myself but they are the favourite breakfast for two of my granddaughters.

    You add the water, shake, and squeeze out on a hot griddle to make "lacy" pancakes, or draw faces, shapes, fun things for children's breakfast.

    I used to make up a foodbasket for my bachelor uncle and remember including it then. It was a yellow plastic container, been around for years.

    Krusteez brand...just add water. Every Saturday we have "breakfast for dinner." Pancakes or french toast, bacon, eggs, or hash browns. We buy the Hungry Jack hash browns in a small carton that looks like a pint of half and half. Add water, let sit, then brown in the frying pan. No lectures, please, about how healthy (or not) this might be. Hubs can cook it all, except the eggs and french toast, and I get a night off. Almost!

    Isn't that the dumbest thing? You may as well make your own! That's why I use Krusteaz too.

    I use Krusteaz or Member's Mark.

    For extra fluffy, add a tablespoon or so of real mayo and use seltzer water instead of plain water. Use both or one. My grandsons love pancakes with apple or peach butter.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    I used to use Krusteaz, too, however I found that I like Aunt Jamima (sp?). All you do is add water. Great tasting, too.

    It is always fun eating breakfast for dinner. It is a real treat at our house.

    When our three kids were living here I made pancakes from scratch. Since just two of us live here we just buy pancake mix and just add water.

    I use the “Jiffy Baking Mix”. I like it a lot better than “Krustez” pancake mix, which to me always had a strange after taste ( kids tell me I am crazy) but the Krustez company makes my favorite hot cereal “Zoom”. Can’t win ‘em all I guess.

    When my kids were home I made pancakes, dipped them in beaten eggs and fried like french toast. Made a pan full of bacon, had fruit puree for syrup, and was dinner about twice a week. They ate pizza or peanut butter sandwiches for breakfast. Pizza is fast and easy for the rushed school mornings.

    So you are paying extra for ordinary flour?!!!!! Pancake mix is flour, eggs and milk, or milk/water mix. Add a bit of sugar, if you want sweet pancakes.

    I make pancakes and crepes from scratch with the recipes in the BHG cookbook from 1977. My daughter was recently here for her fall/autumn college break and half the crepes recipes is quick to make for a nice breakfast.

    Pancakes are the easiest thing to make:

    1 1/2 cups flour
    1 1/2 cups milk
    1 egg
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    pinch of salt
    sugar if you want to add it, but I don't think it needs it.
