Easily Make a Homemade Pancake Mix
I ran out of my King Arthur Flour gluten free pancake mix the other day. AND IT MADE ME SO HAPPY. Why? Because it tasted oddly of maple flavoring, and I did not want to ever have to eat pancakes made from that mix again.
And guess what else? I think most gluten free mixes (of all kinds) are gross. The last time I made a Bob’s Red Mill gluten free yellow cake from a mix, I had to throw most of it out. It tasted like a combination of cardboard and sawdust.
So what to do? Make my own pancake mix! Here is the recipe I came up with:
6 cups gluten free flour blend (mixture of white and brown rice flours, tapioca starch, potato starch, a tiny bit of potato flour, and a bit of xanthan gum or psyllium husk powder)
1 cup dry buttermilk powder
1/3 cup sugar
2 T baking powder
2 t baking soda
2 t salt
Sift all the ingredients together and put in a really big mason jar. Make a label for it that says, “To make 4 medium sized delicious pancakes, take 1 cup of mix, 1 cup of milk, 1 egg, 1 T of melted butter, and 1 t of vanilla and blend thoroughly. For best results, let batter sit for 10 minutes before cooking. Add fruit.” Also, make sure to use Vermont maple syrup on them, if possible, tapped from your own trees.
This mix might also be used in place of biscuit mix for making all manner of delicious baked goods. I need to experiment a little more. It would also make a great gift for someone who is new to being gluten free.
