Easy Homemade Instant Pancake Mix

This Easy Homemade Instant Pancake Mix makes breakfast a breeze! I always have a big container on hand, and once you see how easy making your own Homemade Instant Pancake Mix is, you will too!

I have two one year olds and a four year old, and they love pancakes. They eat them at least 3 times a week for breakfast – we have a lot of fun playing with different kinds of pancake flavors!

I decided to try my hand at making my own homemade pancake mix last summer, and I haven’t turned back since. It’s so easy!

I mix up a huge batch of this easy homemade instant pancake mix just once every few months, and then I whip up a big batch of pancakes in the flavor of the day (just wait until you see my next post…*gasp!*). It’s so inexpensive and convenient, and unlike the store bought variety, when you make your own, you get to pick what goes into the mix. These can easily be made whole wheat too! :)

Throw in fresh or frozen fruit, chocolate chips, purees… experimenting is half the fun!

Whatever pancakes don’t get eaten that day, I lay out on a cookie sheet and freeze. Then I throw them in a ziplock bag and all I have to do is pop them in the toaster for a quick breakfast anytime my kids want them. Easy peasy!

  5. Thanks for sharing this. I love pancakes, but don’t like paying for the pre-mixed stuff because I’m never quite confident about their ingredients. Will be trying this mix soon!

    If you haven’t already, I’d love if you’d come join my How To Tuesday link party, too.

    Can you substitute whole wheat flour?

  11. Renee says:

    this is wonderful, thankyou for an easy pancake recipe, now me and my kids can make pancakes everyday. :)

  12. I liked the part about freezing the one that doesn't get eaten, seems like there is always enough batter for one that no body can eat.

  13. Love the recipe! So easy. Making my own batch this weekend.

  14. thank you for a great recipe.

  15. Melissa says:

    made up a big batch to bring to camp this weekend :) can’t wait to try it.

  16. Barbara Ann Ford says:

    I used this recipe for waffles, it is great!

  17. Andria Sittig says:

    I've tried the recipe and LOVE the taste…SO yummy. I like to halve the pancake mix recipe for my guys, since I usually don't have 8 cups flour, on hand. I've noticed the pacakes are pretty flat, so didn't know if I needed to make any other adjustments in the leavening ingredients when halving the mix recipe? Thahks!

  18. Laura says:

    can you leave out the sugar and the salt? Both are so bad for you, and I’m looking for a healthy recipe since the packaged stuff has GMOs.

  19. Anthony says:

    Is the purpose of the sour cream to make it more like a buttermilk pancake? Would it affect the batter too much if left out?

  20. Kris says:

    Do you know if they can be made without the sour cream? Does it affect the flavor? Could milk be used instead? This recipe looks yummy, I just don’t always have sour cream on hand.

  21. Andria says:

    We love this recipe!! The flavors are wonderful. My only wish is that they were a little fluffier. These always turn out pretty flat, even when I’m careful not to overmix, and let the batter sit without re-stirring. Any ideas on how I might get a little more “rise” out of these otherwise wonderful hot cakes? ;)

    • Stephanie says:

      I’m glad to hear you love this recipe, Andria! As far as getting fluffier pancakes, make sure you really beat the wet ingredients together well. You want to incorporate lots of air into the mixture – that will make the pancakes light and fluffy. Then just very gently add the dry ingredients. Hope that’s helpful :)

  22. Susan Bates says:

    Can I substitute Greek yogurt for the sour cream? I just hate to ask about a substitution when you have a really good, well thought out recipe.

  23. cathy says:

    can you use something else instead of sour cream when making up the pancakes. love the idea of homemade pancake mix

  24. Alexandra says:

    This recipe is soooo nice! I really like the idea of always having a “dry mix” ready anytime so that you just have to make the “wet mix” . I’ve just made one batch of this and my husband ate like 3/4 of the pancakes :)
    For the wet ingredients i mix them quit a lot, like 5-7min so that I have many bubbles to be sure my pancakes will be fluffy. The sour cream is really a plus that gives the pancakes a soft taste.
    Thank you sooo much for this recipe, i’m waiting for my 1 year old son to make him taste them and i’m pretty sure he’ll loove them ;)
