My 2-year-old son comes downstairs every morning lately and says "cook mama, cook cakes." He wants pancakes ALL the time. So this morning when I was making up the batter I mixed up extra quantities of the dry ingredients and stored them in an airtight container so that on future mornings I will already have my pancake mix ready and will just need to add the wet ingredients. Here's how to mix up your own pancake mix:
Put in a large, airtight container:
8 cups flour
1 cup sugar
3 tbsp baking powder
4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
Shake it up real good. With the lid on.
When it comes time to make your pancakes. Mix 2 cups mix, 1/2 stick melted butter, 2 eggs, and enough milk to get the consistency of heavy cream in a large bowl. This will make 10 pancakes.
Pour 1/4 cup batter onto griddle for each pancake. Drop 6 blueberries onto each cake on the griddle. Cook until bubbles begin to surface then flip and cook another minute or so.
Perfect blueberry pancakes!
