Choose to make either a small,
medium, or large mix. The ratio of
ingredients is the same.
All Purpose Flour
Dry Buttermilk Powder
Homemade Sour Cream Pancake Mix
Dry Sour Cream Powder
For easier measurement, remember that one tablespoon equals three teaspoons.
Combine all the ingredients and whisk together to distribute evenly. Store your pancake mixes in an air-tight container in a cool place and it should last a long time
(We asked three processors
the shelf life of buttermilk powder. Two
said indefinitely and one said three years).
You can buy buttermilk powder in your grocery store. You can also buy a quality, long lasting buttermilk powder at the Prepared Pantry at a very good price. We have seen sour cream in some stores but your best bet may be to buy dry sour cream powder at a reasonable price at The Prepared Pantry.
Use the pancake mix as a base mix for by adding fruit, nuts, baking chips or more. Of course, you can make it plain for some special, extra rich pancakes. We guarantee that it is better than most store mixes.
To use your mix:
1. Measure the desired mix into a large bowl.
2. In a smaller bowl, whisk one egg for every one to 1 1/2 cups of mix.
3. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons melted butter or oil to the egg for every one cup of mix.
4. Add 2/3 cup water to the egg mixture for every one cup of mix. Add the liquid mixture to the mix and stir until just combined. The batter will probably be too dry so add more water to reach the desired consistency.

mixes that you can make. Of course, this is just a beginning; use your
imagination to create more great gourmet pancakes.
