Easy pumpkin pancakes
If you’ve been sold on the idea that pancakes are hard to make from scratch, you’ve been snookered. Store bought pancake mix in the familiar yellow or blue packaging is a dry mix that needs to be mixed with milk and eggs.
Homemade pancakes simply require you to measure a few of your own much-less-expensive ingredients and (you guessed it) mix them with milk and eggs.
And you can do it all in one bowl! Start by measuring the dry ingredients together. Stir until combined, then add the wet ingredients. This does two things.
- It assures that the baking soda is evenly distributed so you don’t get an accidental mouthful of it in a finished pancake.
- By starting with dry ingredients, you can use one measuring cup for the whole pancake recipe. Easy cleanup!
The packaged mixes might shave off a minute or two of measuring at best. If you really like to have ready to make pancake mix at hand, make up a batch of this homemade pancake mix for a fraction of the cost.
