Who doesn’t love pancakes for breakfast?! Well today is one of the best days to enjoy ‘em since it’s National Pancake Day!!

To help celebrate this delectable treat, here’s a homemade Pancake recipe that will beat the extra calories found in the boxed variety!  We make this easy mix and keep it stored in an air-tight container.  Then, whenever we want to whip up pancakes, we use the mix and can’t imagine why a store mix would even exist when you’ve got something as delicious and healthy as these!

The Dry mix makes 12 servings of 8 pancakes each



  • 1 cup water
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened apple sauce


For Dry Mix: Mix flour, powdered milk, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.  Dump contents into an airtight container..

When you want to make pancakes:

Pour 2 cups of your dry mix in a bowl.

Add the wet mix ingredients and beat with a wire wisk or fork.   Don’t over stir. Like most pancake recipes, make sure to leave lots of lumps. If you stir those lumps out, your pancakes will come out tough and chewy instead of fluffy and light. Preheat a griddle to about 375 degrees and spritz with oil to grease it.

Place about a ¼ cup of batter into the middle of the  griddle and when you start to see little bubbles, that’s your cue to flip the pancakes. Continue to cook (about 5 minutes total) or until desired darkness is reached.

Serve fresh with blueberries, strawberries or any fruit of choice!  Or with our apple butter from yesterdays post! (


This will make eight, 4-inch pancakes:
