Pancake Mix That's Better (and Cheaper) Than Store-Bought
To make dry mix:
Makes enough for 3 batches of pancakes.
In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Store in a sealed container.
To cook pancakes:
Makes 18 (4-inch) pancakes
Total time: 30 minutes
Put dry mix in large bowl. Make a well in the dry ingredients; add eggs, milk, and canola oil; and mix gently. (There will be a few lumps in the batter.) Lightly oil the surface of a griddle or a large skillet, and heat over medium heat. Pour ¼ cup batter onto griddle for each pancake, spacing them out so they have room to spread without touching. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, about 3 minutes; then flip and cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes. Continue cooking batches with remaining batter. Serve with maple syrup and your choice of toppings.
