Sometimes, you need pancake mix.
It’s for those mornings when you don’t feel like beating together this many eggs and this much flour, then mixing (but not over mixing!) and then eating pancakes 20 minutes later, after which most have already cooled since you cooked them in separate batches.
But the other option, pancake mix, gives you flat and too-chewy pancakes. You want to Instagram them because you’ve gotten behind on your Insta game, but no amount of the Sepia filter will save this.
Is there a happy middle ground? Glad you asked.
The boxed pancake powder has so much potential. It just needs a little revival, something to give it a little fluff. It needs baking powder.
Specifically, it needs 1 tsp of baking powder per 1/2 cup of pancake mix.
Mix it together and proceed as usual per pancake box instructions.
Now go forth and Insta.
