How to Make Pancake Mix for Homemade Pancakes
The boxes of pancake mix you buy in the store are nothing more than the dry ingredients. When you are cooking pancakes at home with a store-bought mix you are using ingredients that you already probably have at home.
Boxed pancakes are quick and easy to use but the pancakes are far from amazing. The secret is to make your own homemade pancake mix to use when you are making homemade pancakes. And I have to tell you it is just as easy to make your own pancake mix at home as buying a box in the store. Not only will you have better pancakes but it is cheaper to make your own mix.
You can double, trip, or even quadruple or more this pancake dry mix recipe and then store it in a canister for easy pancake making!
How to Make Pancakes fluffy
To have the best fluffy pancake recipe ever the most important thing is using fresh ingredients. Old ingredients will give you flat pancakes. If you are making a homemade pancake mix ahead of time then you want to be sure that you store it in an airtight container so everything stays fresh.
Do NOT over mix. You want those clumps in your pancakes, they are vital to making pancakes fluffy. If you over mix the batter you will end up with tough, unfluffy pancakes.
Don’t flip your pancakes too soon (or too late). When you see the bubbles starting to pop flip that pancake over! Overcooking pancakes will also make them tough and unfluffy.
How to Make the Best Pancakes at home
For the best pancakes recipe, the most important thing is the pancake base. You can not make the best pancakes ever if you have a yucky base. This easy homemade pancake mix is the best one there is, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
It is also important that you grease your pan well. Pancakes will stick to a pan if it is not greased enough.
This spatula that is pancake sized is my favorite thing to use when I am making homemade pancakes. It is huge and makes it so your pancakes won’t flop over when you are flipping them! I also like to use this pancake mix dispenser so that I have less mess when I am pouring the pancake batter into my greased pan on the stove. I want as little mess as possible so I can enjoy my pancakes while they are right out of the pan!
What can you add to Pancakes?
The great thing about pancakes is how easy it is to customize them and change up the flavors. Once you have an amazing base you can add just about anything to them! This homemade pancake mix recipe will give you the ability to add any toppings or add-ins that you love and still have an amazing pancake.
Some of our favorite add-ins:
- chocolate chips
What to serve with Pancakes

How to Freeze Pancakes
I like to make large batches of pancakes at a time to make breakfasts during the busy week even easier.
Freezing pancakes is so easy. Just cook your pancakes and allow them to cool. Once they are cooled stack into piles of serving size you normally make. We do 3 pancakes per pile. Wrap each pile with plastic wrap and then put all wrapped piles of pancakes into a gallon size freezer bag and place in the freezer.
To reheat the homemade pancakes, remove a frozen pancake stack and heat in the microwave in the plastic wrap for 30-45 seconds depending on your microwave.
