Skip the boxed kind and make up your own batch of homemade pancake mix, made with just five ingredients including whole grain flour.
I like to make pancakes from scratch. But frankly, sometimes I don’t feel like hauling out all the ingredients. So I started making my own instant mix. Then all I need to do is add egg, milk, and butter, and we can have weekday pancakes without much fuss.
This recipe goes halfsies with all-purpose and whole wheat flour, but feel free to use all whole wheat or all-purpose if you prefer. I don’t add any added sugar to my homemade pancakes since my kids eat them with real maple syrup. If you like sweeter hot cakes, add a couple tablespoons of brown or white sugar to the mix.

Homemade Instant Pancake Mix
Keep a batch of this homemade pancake mix on hand for easy, whole grain hot cakes anytime.
- 2 cups whole wheat flour, (or white whole wheat)
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Combine flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl and mix thoroughly.
- Transfer to an airtight jar or container.
To make a batch of pancakes, whisk 1 egg in a medium bowl. Add one cup of pancake mix, 1/2 cup milk (more if you prefer thinner batter), and 2 tablespoons melted butter (slightly cooled). Stir just until combined, do not overmix. Fold in any additional mix-in like blueberries, banana slices, or chocolate chips. While batter is resting, heat a griddle over medium heat and brush with butter. Scoop the batter onto the griddle in 1/4-1/3 cup portions, flip when top is bubbly and underside is lightly browned.

Just what I was looking for! You many pancakes in one batch? How many batches in the mix?
One batch (using one cup of mix) makes about five medium-large pancakes. There are roughly 4 batches in the whole mix. Hope that helps!
which butter shd i use?
Salted or unsalted, your choice!
What kind of jar is pictured here? I love that wooden lid.
