This recipe is from my friend Olympia. She is a fantastic cook with a discerning palate, so when she recommended it to me years ago, I knew it would be good. Our family loves it, but it wasn’t until I made pancakes from Bisquick that I realized exactly how exceptional this homemade pancake mix is. It really is so much better than store bought mixes. I used to make my pancakes from scratch every time – these are just as good, but much more convenient. This can also be used as a waffle mix.
Whole Wheat Pancake Mix
- 6 cups whole wheat flour
- 3 cups white flour
- 1/3 cup baking powder
- 1 1/2 cups dry skim milk powder
- 4 teaspoons salt
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 3/4 cups shortening
Step 1. Place all dry ingredients in bowl of stand mixer with the whisk attachment. Mix on low to combine all ingredients evenly.
Step 2. Add shortening to dry ingredients. Start mixer out on low so that flour doesn’t get everywhere. Once the shortening is starting to be cut into the flour mixture you can increase the speed. I usually run it at the highest setting for about 30 seconds. Once the mixture looks like sand and there are no lumps of shortening, it is done.
Step3. Store in an air-tight container.
To use: Mix two cups mix with one egg and 1 1/3 cups water. Add more water as necessary to achieve the correct consistency.
I’m not sure how long this will stay good, but I have used it after 6 months with no problems. Enjoy!!!!
