Pancake Mix in a Jar

It’s very convenient to have some “just add water” meals around for a rainy day. I can’t tell you how many times this mix has saved me in the mornings. All you need to do is add a few wet ingredients and viola – you’ve got fresh pancakes.

As an added bonus, I have also used this recipe to make waffles with. Enjoy!

To make pancakes or waffles: 2 cups pancake mix 1 cup water, 1 egg, 2 tablespoons oil (for waffles, use 3 tablespoons). Beat smooth with a wire whisk or fork. This makes eight 4-inch pancakes or 4 large waffles.
