A few years ago, I posted a recipe for Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes  which advocated the use of an instant pancake mix and one of my fave bloggers told me that I should make and not buy the mix.  Trust me – when Sue speaks, I listen.    Plus – having dealt with one too many “pantry pests”, I’d feel much better knowing where everything came from.  Let’s not even get into the cost of buying one of those big box brands and shelf life questions.

I have been using my version of Nigella Lawson’s fail-safe Instant Pancake Mix which is a pantry staple.  Essentially, you just mix the 5 ingredients, take a cup of the instant pancake and waffle mix to 1 egg, 1 cup milk and one tablespoon of melted butter – how easy is that?  I mean – it’s just a 1:1:1:1 and you have a pile of fluffy pancakes or waffles that will bring a smile of joy to everyone at the table.  I love whisking in blueberries or apples, some extra cinnamon or whatever happens to inspire me and I find that this Homemade Instant Pancake and Waffle Mix is like that brunch little black dress.  You can always count on it being “just right”.

So – take a moment, get a container and make your own Homemade Instant Pancake and Waffle Mix that has ingredients that YOU know and trust.  No interesting “additives” or anything wonky that will make you wonder what exactly is in that box of mix that has been sitting on a store shelf for centuries.  Plus – with the money you save, just add that to the stiletto fund.
