Pancake Mix


  • 8 cups flour (if you’d like an all whole wheat mix, use whole wheat pastry flour)
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal (stone ground)
  • 1 1/2 cups oatmeal (blend in your blender till powdered)
  • 2 cups buttermilk powder (look for it in the baking section of your market)
  • 5 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons baking soda
  • 1 cup sugar (or sucanat-natural sugar)
  • 2 tablespoons salt

This will make four quarts. Mix all together in a very large bowl and divide up into gallon sized freezer storage bags. I would mark the date with a Sharpie pen and keep it in the freezer although you can keep in your pantry.

To make pancakes or waffles:

  • 1 cup pancake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 to 2/3 cup water (start with the lesser amount first and add if you need to)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

In a medium bowl, stir mix with water, egg and vegetable oil. Heat your griddle and make your pancakes as usual! To make waffles, double the batter and follow the directions for your waffle iron.
