Pancake & Waffle Base Mix

Pancake & Waffle Base Mix

My mom adapted this recipe, and it has been a wonderful pancake/waffle experience since. Probably around the year 2000, I broke my dependency to Bisquick. Before this, I thought the only way I could make pancakes or waffles was with Bisquick. It was then that I realized, “I can make this myself”. But, I was always missing something, and my pancakes and waffles were quickly named “rubber duckies.” When my mom found this recipe and passed it along to me, I made it in big batches and stored it in a large plastic zip lock bag. All I can say is,  it was better than Bisquick (maybe because I knew exactly what I put into it)! This recipe makes super pancakes and waffles. In fact, I think this final product would give Bisquick a run for its money. Compare the ingredients on the back of the bisquick box and see below, this recipe has 4 ingredients and will not spoil! It also makes a super gift to give pre-mixed bags to friends and family during the holidays. Any way you choose to use it, you will be thrilled with the results. All the best!
