Best Make Ahead Pancake Mix

 I don't know about you, but pancakes are my least favourite thing to make from scratch. It just seems like a whole lot of mess, for not a lot of reward (mine NEVER turn out the way I want).  At least, that's how I felt, until my friend shared her family pancake flour recipe with me. You guys, this recipe is perfection. You mix everything together and store it in jars for later. SO easy. When you need a quick breakfast, all you have to add is milk, and an egg and you're all set. It is no mess, fast, and the results are downright de! 

Recipe by the Gibb Family

5 cups of white flour
5 cups of whole wheat flour
1/2 cup baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
4 teaspoons salt

Mix together and store in airtight containers (mason jars work great). When you are ready to use, mix 3/4 cup of flour mixture, 3/4 cup of milk, and 1 egg.  Top with pure maple syrup and you're all set.  

(Makes about 6 medium sized pancakes.)
Enjoy! Alex

Thank you Leslie, for changing my views on pancakes!
