A New Take on Pancakes

Janet Groene’s
Secret Ingredient Pancake Mix

      This is best with spice, yellow or French vanilla cake mix. For a change try strawberry, orange or lemon. 
       Homemade mixes are always a plus for RV travel because you know what’s in them, you make only the quantity you need  each time, and they save money, time and mess. I have not tried this with gluten-free cake mix and biscuit mix but they should work. 

1 box cake mix, about 18 ounces
1 box biscuit mix, about 18 ounces

 Empty mixes into a large freezer bag. Zip closed and gently bounce it around to mix contents well.  Keep  in a cool, dry place. 

To make pancakes:

2 eggs
1 cup milk
2 cups pancake mix

1/4 stick butter, melted (optional)

     Whisk eggs and milk until light. Stir in dry mix and melted butter. If thinner batter is desired, add a little more milk or water. Cook as for pancakes. Serves 3 to 4. 

     To make a Mug Pancake for One, spray a large, microwave-safe mug with nonstick spray. In a bowl whisk together a scant cup of the mix with 1/16 teaspoon baking soda (tiny pinch) and  1/4 cup each milk and applesauce, pumpkin puree or prune puree.         Microwave on High 1 minute, then at 15-second intervals until it’s puffy and firm to the touch. Use a fork to prick holes in the top and place a pat of butter on it until it melts and/or drizzle with syrup to taste. Serves one.
