Perfect Pancake & Waffle Mix for Gifting

A few Christmas seasons ago, a friend of ours got the bright idea of selling this amazing Pancake & Waffle Mix as a fundraiser. She packaged it in our lovely Cracker Jars (for larger families) in addition to wide-mouth Pint and quart jars. They made great gifts for teachers and coworkers that year! We even added a bottle of our own Vanilla Extract and some Maple Syrup to sweeten the deal!

If you have a good bulk store in your area, this is one of those projects that will make this even more economical. I was thrilled to be able to do a one-stop-shopping at our local Kauffman’s Fruit Farm.

    I have a fairly similar recipe. For variation 1 cup of flour can be replaced with: 1 cup of oatmeal, 1 cup of seven-grain (or nine-grain) cereal, and/or 1 cup of cornmeal. One can use any or all of the substitutions depending how crunchy one likes the pancakes to be. Also if using the mix for camping or other situations where fresh eggs would be a problem dried eggs can be added to the mix as well, but then it won’t work for waffles. (Do people take waffle irons camping?)

      Great variations! And yes, Ellen, I’ve known a few folks who do indeed take their waffle irons camping! 🙂

    No eggs? How much water?

      Hello Catie, The blog recipe is just for the dry ingredients for your pantry or for gifting. The instructions on how to use the mix for waffles and for pancakes (which include the wet ingredients) are available on the free printables link toward the end of this post.
