Pancakes: Scratch vs. Shortcut

A pancake breakfast on a weekend morning puts the whole family in a good frame of mind. With everyone relaxed and happy, it’s a good time to spend some quality time together. Keep it positive – make plans for the day or reminisce about fun times you’ve had together.

It’s pretty easy to pull a box of pancake mix out of the cupboard, but if you love pancakes, you owe it to yourself to try the below recipe for Easy Buttermilk Pancakes. I don’t make pancakes often as I usually opt for serving waffles to company. However, I have to admit, when I started testing this recipe, I realized I had forgotten how unbelievably delicious a real made-from-scratch buttermilk pancake can be!

This recipe for Easy Buttermilk Pancakes is made with self-rising flour. If you have buttermilk on hand, you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry. Simply mix eggs, buttermilk and oil together in a large bowl. Add flour, sugar and soda. Stir until large lumps disappear, but don’t over mix. Over mixing will make pancakes tough.

As much as we might like to make everything from scratch, we don’t always have the time. For busy mornings or a quick supper, you can turn out a batch of pancakes in record time. Grab a Martha White® muffin mix and add egg and milk and you’re ready to go.  Serve pancakes the classic way with butter and syrup or top them with yogurt, fruit and nuts. If you’re in the mood for something different, give the Fruit Muffin Mix Pancakes recipe a try.
