Last Minute Pancake Mix Gift Idea

Pin It Now!
Our family loves homemade pancakes and they are so easy to make with just a few basic ingredients. The job of making pancakes takes just literally minutes...especially if things are pre-mixed and ready to go. Today I am sharing with you our BEST pancake recipe mix, that makes beautifully light & fluffy pancakes, and when the dry-ingredients are pre-mixed, it makes a fantastic gift when paired with a bottle of maple syrup or even a flavored butter.
Here is the recipe that our family has used for years and years. The recipe is tripled so it make a nice big bag of pancake mix for gift-giving.

Pancake Mix
{makes 3 batches of pancakes}

Ingredients:
4 1/2 cups flour
3 tbsp. white sugar
9 tbsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt

To Make:
1. Sift ingredients together. Pour into a large bag.
2. With Pancake Mix, include directions to make 1 batch of pancakes as follows:
Measure 1 3/4 cups pancake mix into large bowl. In separate bowl, mix together 1 egg, 1 3/4 cup milk and 2 tbsp. vegetable oil. Make a well in center of dry ingredients and add milk & egg mixture. Stir gently until just mixed. Let batter rest for 1 minute. Using 1/2 cup measure, scoop batter onto hot griddle. Cook one side of pancakes until edges are slightly browned, then flip over and continue cooking until edges are browned. Serve with syrup. Makes 8 pancakes.
And I made the bag pretty by adding a chalkboard label and then I used red stickers for the title.
And the gift also looks super cute if you add a small spatula to the package too.
{I found the small Santa spatula at Target.}
And now you have a great gift for a family or friends. And it would make the most wonderful Christmas gift too!
And if you wanted, you could include this super wonderful Strawberry Butter too....it is heavenly on pancakes with syrup.
Wishing you a wonderful pancake breakfast!
