Old House Pancake Mix

I have this yummy morning staple for sale (made fresh to order) over at Old House Mercantile.  I thought I'd share the recipe.  I keep a large jar on the counter with a label for the mix recipe on the back side and a label for the actual pancakes on the front side.

Mix:
2 1/2 cups flour
4 tsp. baking powder
4 T. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt



Pancakes:
3 cups mix
2 eggs
2 T. butter (melted)
2 cups milk



I mix up 4 batches of mix at a time and put in a jar on the counter.  That way I can just scoop out what I need for each breakfast.  One batch is enough for our kiddos since it makes between 18-24  4" pancakes.  Sometimes we add in blueberries, too!

I try to rotate breakfasts.  Usually Mondays, and Thursdays are pancake mornings. Wednesdays are always cereal days since it's a busy day for us.  Tuesdays, Fridays and Sundays are muffins or baked oatmeal.  Sometimes Sundays are coffee cake. 


Here are links to the recipes that I use.

This sounds wonderful, I have a few very large seal top cookie jars that need using (I usually have 2 full of cookies lol) and this would be perfect.
Thanks for sharing

I just tried your pancake mix recipe and my husband *loved* it!! They were definitely more fluffy and tasty than any boxed mix with water or milk! I will never have to buy mix again!

Thanks so much!

I'm so excited! I like to make pancakes on Saturday mornings but I don't really like the mix I bought. I'm going to try this.

What a good idea to make it and store in a jar! I stopped buying mix years ago when I realized how easy it is (really not much .ore difficult than using a mix!!!). But haking the mix ahead and storing on the counter would help me make pancakes even more often. Thanks for the recipe (I'll have to try it and compare to the one I've used)!
