For Christmas, Mom did up a bunch of mixes w/handmade recipe book including recipes for each mix, for each of us 3 'kids' out of a book her aunt gave her one year for Christmas. AWESOME! I FINALLY begged & pleaded long enough for the mix recipes that she just let me borrow the book! :)
I love having the pancake mix the most! so here it is:
10 cups all purpose flour (I use 1/2 unbleached & 1/2 whole wheat)
2-1/2 cups instant nonfat dry milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup baking powder
combine all ingredients in a large bowl. stir until blended & put in an air tight container. (I put it all in the storage container & shake it up) Label & use w/in 8 months. Makes 13 cups of mix.
to make a batch of pancakes:
1-1/2 cups pancake mix
1 cup water
1 egg, slightly beaten
combine in a medium bowl (I use the pampered chef 8 cup mixing 'cup', mix a double batch & put remaining mix in the fridge for the next day)Let rest 5 minutes. cook on a hot oiled griddle about 3-4 minutes per side or until browned to your liking. Usually makes10-12 4" pancakes.
can also be used to make:
preheat oil in deep fryer to 375. Make batter w/ice water. Dip thinly sliced separated onion rings into batter, then fry about 2 minutes until golden.
