A long time ago, before kids, I would attempt to make pancakes for my husband using a store bought baking mix and they just never, ever tasted very good. The problem was more with the texture of the pancake than anything else. Then a few years ago I found a recipe for Buttermilk Pancakes and lo’ and behold they were good and people in my family actually enjoyed them!
My girls, in particular LOVE pancakes. But sometimes when they want pancakes I just don’t feel like getting everything out and mixing it all up. I mean really, why can’t they just get a bowl of cereal and leave me be!
So in order to combat my laziness what I like to do is make up 5 to 7 containers of Pancake Mix (dry ingredients only) to have on hand. For example, this morning when I made pancakes I measured all the dry ingredients into the bowl and I also measured them 5 times more into my containers.
Doing this only added about 10 minutes to my prep time this morning but will save me time for the next 5 times the kids want pancakes. Just dump the dry ingredients into my bowl, add the wet ingredients and pancakes are just minutes away!
This is what works for me! To see more Work For Me Wednesday ideas visit We are THAT Family.
