I have been trying to find a good homemade pancake mix for a while. I tried a bunch of different recipes and mixed and matched until I came up with one my family really enjoys. The great thing about this mix is it will be good in the fridge for up to 6 six. Mine has never ever lasted 6 weeks, but it will be ok for that long.
It is super simple with a food processor. You literally just add all the ingredients and process until coarse crumbs form. Then store in an airtight container.
I have used this recipe for pancakes. My boys love chocolate chips added into the pancake while on the griddle. Adding Banana slices are amazing also. We have also added blueberries, strawberries, or red raspberries. This batter holds up to the additions and puffs up nicely.
Then for biscuits, my family doesn’t like small biscuits, so I always double the biscuit recipe for get 6 large biscuits. But you can get 6 small (or maybe normal sized) biscuits with 1 batch. These are amazing with seasonings added into the melted butter to be brushed on the top after baking. Or you can mix herbs or cheese in while mixing it up. These couldn’t be any easier or quick for a dinner side or breakfast.
