Pancake Dry Mix
Hey there! I have been using Walmart's brand of dry pancake mix that I can add water to only and have about a week's worth of pancakes for $1.29. Can I make a dry mix that would be cheaper than this? Does anyone have recipes? I am looking for something simliar to where I only have to add water or very few ingredients. THanks!

I usually buy the Hungry Jack complete (just add water) with a doubled coupon, I can get a 2 lb. box for about $1. Aldi's has a complete pancake mix for 99 cents, if you have an Aldi near you. Things to consider when making from scratch are the cost of ingredients, milk, eggs, oil, flour, baking powder, etc. Milk and eggs are both rising rapidly in price around here.

pancakes large batch
1 tab salt
1/3 c baking powder
3/4 c sugar
2 1/2 c dry milk
10 c flour
cut in 3/4 c shortening. add 1 egg when you are ready to make pancakes and enough water to make your wet mix. i usually use about 2 cups of mix plus the egg and water when I make pancakes. but I am feeding a man the size of a lumberjack. Barb

Thanks Barb....do you think this is cheaper than a box for $1.29? I guess I need to do some crunching numbers to see.

I have always made large batches. The cost depends on what you have to pay for flour I suppose. I buy and grind my own wheat so for me it is alot cheaper.

Plus making it yourself it is alot healthier. No additives to keep it on the store shelves for no telling how long.
