Homemade Pancake Mix Recipes

I love this idea it makes it much easier when making pancakes. It also costs less.


Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 5 mason jars


  • 9 cups flour ($2.00)
  • 1/3 cup double acting baking powder ($.50)
  • 4 tsp salt ($.05)
  • 1 3/4 cup shortening ($1.00)
  • 1 3/4 cup non-fat dry milk ($.75)


  1. Stir baking powder, dry milk and salt into the flour.
  2. Cut shortening in flour mix until all particles of shortening are coated with flour. Use blender, mixer, cutter or whatever for this process.
  3. Store in tightly covered container. I used mason jars.You can store at room temperature for six weeks, longer if you freeze it.
  4. Add 2 cups of your mix into each jar with 1 tsp. of sugar. Put on your lid and shake. Label your jar add 1 egg and one cup of water. Replace lid and shake vigorously,then cook your pancakes.
  5. Use a 1 quart mason jar so you have enough room in your jar.

My son moved and gave me his Perfect Pancake Maker (as seen on TV) but no recipe booklet. He does not have the recipe for the dry pancake mix that comes with this item. I have not been able to locate the recipe and wondered if anyone has it? I would like to have any recipe for the dry ingredients to store and mix when you are ready to cook.

Master Mix 20 cups all purpose flour, sifted
2 1/2 cups dry milk
3/4 cup double acting baking powder
3 Tbsp. salt 2 Tbsp. cream of tartar
1/2 cup sugar
4 cups (or 2 pounds) vegetable shortening

Measure all ingredients accurately. Stir the flour, dry milk, salt, baking powder, cream of tartar and sugar together until well blended. Cut or rub the shortening with a pastry blender or your hands until it is evenly distributed and the mixture resembles coarse meal. Makes about 29 cups of mix.

Storing the mix: Store this mix in an air tight container such as glass jars, or in plastic or metal containers. Label the container. Be careful not to pack the mix. Tighten the lids and store at room temperature in a dark place. This mix keeps 4 weeks at room temperatures.

Using the mix: Measuring the mix lightly fluff the mix in the container before measuring with a spoon. Then, spoon the mix into a dry measuring cup and level it off with a spatula or the straight edge of a knife.
