Goodies for Giving *Pancake Mix*

This is a favorite gift of mine for families. If you do not have money to get each person a gift, give a group gift. This recipe is perfect for any family.


1 cup all purpose flour 2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt 1/3 cup of powdered milk

Mix everything together in a bowl and put in a Ziploc bag or small canning jar. Add instructions(below)

Whisk together pancake mix, 2 eggs, 1 tsp oil, and 1 cup of water. Cook on skillet and enjoy!

Presentation: Put pancake mix in something creative. Maybe a glass measuring cup, basket, bucket, or in a mixing bowl. One year I made these for my family. I found baskets at thrift stores (super cheap!), added my mix, wooden spoon ($1 store 4pk), vintage aprons (found at thrift stores) and a small jar of honey. Try to use things vintage, 2nd hand, or things free from friends or family. Get creative and save money!

Optional: Want to make creative pancakes? Try to throw in 1 tsp of cinnamon. Like banana or pumpkin pancakes? Put in the instructions to add banana flavoring (baking section) or pumpkin puree. Or if its a child's gift throw in some chocolate chips into your master mix. Have fun with it!
