Sometimes, you need pancake mix.
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 only eating pancakes fifteen 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 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.
But hear me out — you can get fluffy pancakes and have enough time to sit there finding the perfect angle where the camera captures only the best-looking pancakes and the syrup glistens with the morning sun.
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.
Now go forth and Insta.
