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. 

What is in Pancake Mix? 

Pancake mix is made generally of 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 baking powder, salt and sugar.

Things to Keep in Mind When Working With Pancake Mix

  • Sometimes, pancake mix can get lumpy. To troubleshoot this, sift the pancake mix into your bowl. 
  • Try substituting 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.
