You’ll see your favorite pancake mix in a whole new light with these delicious and easy recipes for new family favorites!
Pancake mix is a staple in my pantry. Did you know there are a whole list of uses for pancake mix that aren’t actually pancakes? Yes it’s true!
And if you are the type of person who loves to make their own pancake mix, you can still totally make these recipes! My favorite homemade pancake mix is from Four Hats and Frugal.
I love when I am in an all around meal rut, I can combine pancake mix and more, creating a great recipe the whole family will enjoy. From desserts like an easy cake recipe that is better than a boxed cake mix to savory recipes where you can pour batter over hot dogs!
One of my favorite recipes in this list is fried oreos. It brings me back to being at a fair. Do you know why deep fried oreo recipes use pancake mix? Because the batter creates a crispy outside and a soft inside.
One of family’s favorite uses for pancake mix are pancake muffins. They’re so easy that even the kids can make them now and are great for snacks or breakfast. We add cinnamon sugar, peanut butter, chocolate chips or maple syrup to change the original recipe.
What is in Pancake Mix?
Pancake mix is made generally of dry ingredients like all purpose flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
While you may be tempted to use it as a substitute for flour, I’d advise against that because of the added leavening agent such as baking powder, salt and white sugar.
Things to Keep in Mind When Working With Pancake Mix
- Sometimes, pancake mix can get lumpy. To troubleshoot this and get a nice smooth batter , it is a good idea to sift the pancake mix into your bowl.
- Try substituting whole milk, sour cream, almond milk for any place you see water as an ingredient. The flavor and fat in milk not only adds more flavor, but can lead to a thicker texture in your recipe.
