Pancakes are my all time favorite breakfast food. If it were up to me, I would make them every single day. For some reason, the kids don't seem to think that they want to eat pancakes every day, and, well, I just can't eat the entire batch all by myself (shouldn't anyway...). I think something must be wrong with them to not want pancakes every day. Especially when Mom makes them.
One of the things I love about this recipe is that you make up a huge bowl of the mix, and then mix up a batch anytime with no effort. If I remember right, I got the recipe from an old (okay, I'll admit it, antique is a more appropriate word) Make A Mix cookbook.
1 1/2 cups pancake mix - recipe below
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup water
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
Combine and mix well. Let stand for 5 minutes. Cook in hot pan.
10 cups flour
2 1/2 cups powdered milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup baking powder
1 tablespoons salt
