We are one of those families that loves having breakfast for supper! I like to keep a nice big jar of this Pancake Mix on hand for when we want to whip of some Stuffed Waffles and Sausage for supper (or the occasional breakfast I suppose!) This recipe makes enough to fill a gallon glass jar. (Which is what I keep mine in!)

Pancake or Waffle Mix

What you need:

Mix together well and store in a large container. To make:

  • 1 egg
  • 2 T. oil
  • 1 c. water
  • 1 1/2 c. Pancake Mix

Whip together all the ingredients with a whisk. A few lumps are normal and won't effect the final product πŸ™‚ You can use this recipe to make pancakes or waffles!

Cute idea!

Any idea how to make this without the buttermilk? We have milk allergies in the kids and they can’t eat it at all. Thanks.

You may just be able to leave it out and it would work just fine.

Suggestion, There’s other ‘milk’ substitutes, such as almond, coconut, goat in powder forms. I think you can do that by adding liquid to the mix when you’re ready to cook.

Thanks! I made mine today. Can’t wait to try it. This will also come in handy for when I go in to have the baby. My Mom is coming to stay at my house to watch my 3 children and this should make breakfast a bit easier on her πŸ™‚

Awesome idea. AS much bisquick as I buy, this would save some money.

I was just woundering how long the shelf life is? I saw
another one that you could use powered eggs too easier for


9 Merissa September 25, 2013 at 2:00 pm

I’ve stored this easily for many months on the shelf. If you want to extend the life you could put it in the freezer for up to a year.

How many pancakes/servings does the recipe with 1 1/2 c. of mix make?


11 Merissa December 2, 2013 at 5:39 am

It makes about 10 medium sized pancakes.

I’m loving your website and facebook page! I’m also wondering if you can make this gluten free by changing the flour? Thanks πŸ™‚


13 Merissa January 16, 2014 at 7:08 am

I haven’t tried gluten free flour in this recipe but I have done this recipe for Gluten Free Pancakes and it’s awesome!


14 Emma King March 3, 2014 at 11:33 am

Fabulous! Just in time for Pancake day tomorrow in GB! πŸ™‚


15 Marcia Lehman May 4, 2014 at 8:33 am

This sounds great and I will try it!! If you used whole wheat flour, would you use that totally, or mix it with regular flour?


16 Merissa May 4, 2014 at 10:17 am

I really think you could do either half and half or fully whole wheat.


17 cammie May 4, 2014 at 3:47 pm

Sounds wonderful. Can’t wait to try it. Just having trouble finding the buttermilk powder locally.


18 Merissa May 4, 2014 at 4:26 pm

Check near the powdered milk and baking supplies at your local grocery store.


19 Corinne June 5, 2014 at 11:05 am

Hi! Thanks for this recipe, I have tried many different mixes, and when this one was made, the children loved it! I also use your bread mix, my son said that we almost make all our bread, now we need to make a bigger loaf so we don’t have to make bread every day! Thank you for all the work you do on this site, it is much appreciated!


20 Patricia August 24, 2014 at 9:27 am

These are FANTASTIC! Now, my only pancake recipe.


21 Tara H August 30, 2014 at 11:51 am

Do you store this in the fridge? The buttermilk powder I found says to refrigerate after opening.


22 Merissa August 30, 2014 at 3:46 pm

I do not but my buttermilk powder doesn’t say to store it in the fridge, I would if your powder says that though πŸ˜‰


23 Tara H August 30, 2014 at 4:05 pm

Ok. Thanks! Can’t wait to try it!


24 Melba Hanska September 3, 2014 at 8:29 pm

Thanks for the recipe. This is definitely going into my stash, probably in a gallon jar.


25 Anita April 30, 2015 at 8:27 pm

It’s funny, for the last couple months I’ve been looking up quite a few recipes and how-to’s usually from pinterest.. I keep ending up back at YOUR blog! I love it. I’m thinking I should just come here first. πŸ™‚


26 Merissa May 1, 2015 at 8:26 am

Well I’m glad you are here Anita! πŸ™‚


27 sheri June 7, 2015 at 9:00 pm

how would i make the mix if i wanted to add the buttermilk (almond milk)etc. in when i make it?


28 Evans June 18, 2015 at 4:45 am

Must be delicious!! Will try it.


29 Ann July 13, 2015 at 7:48 pm

Is the flour in the recipe same with all purpose flour? Also can I substitute regular powdered milk with the buttermilk powder? Thanks


30 Merissa July 14, 2015 at 6:54 am

Yes, this recipe uses all purpose flour and I think buttermilk powder *should* work in the recipe but I have not personally tried it.
