Make your own biscuit and pancake mix

Whole wheat pancake and biscuit mix in the freezer makes for an easy breakfast. Just dump in bowl, add wet ingredients and cook.

The other day Josiah was “mentioning” that we didn’t have any food in the house…only things to make food with. He was right, I’ve been a little preoccupied with things like tiling a floor and haven’t done a good job of keeping of our homemade snacks in the house.

So Saturday I set out to remedy that and made banana muffins, granola bars and protein bars. I also took the opportunity to make some biscuit and pancake mixes for the freezer. Even though we homeschool and don’t have to rush out the door, I’ve found that having these mixes really helps our mornings run smoother.

So glad I found you well actually the Lord lead me to you because I was always looking for a pancake recipe that I would like right away, well I decided to use half wheat half white and used canola oil. I made the most fabulous blueberry pancakes! I had to try them before I put them up in mason jars. I wanted to use coconut oil but wasn't sure how to melt it because I use it on veggies and toast etc but never baked with it before. I love love having stuff made ahead of time. Thank you so much. Please respond by email, Rosz

I love homemade mixes, but have never heard of using pastry flour for them. I want to use my freshly ground flour, what should I add or change? I don't have pastry flour of any kind.

please respond through email.

I realize that it's been a while since this post, but I'm hoping you'll see this.

Thanks

Hi Sandra, thanks so much for asking. Pastry flour is from soft wheat. So when you buy your wheat berries to grind you probably buy hard red wheat or hard white wheat. Next time you buy wheat berries look for soft white wheat. Soft white wheat will have less gluten in it than hard wheat so it makes for a less gummy pastry. I've found that I can easily substitute soft white wheat flour (pastry flour) for cookie, biscuit, cake, quick bread, waffle or pancake recipe IF I pack the flour like you do when you measure brown sugar. It might take some experimenting but it's worth it. Also, when I'm out of soft white wheat, I just use the hard wheat and the only one who can tell a difference is me. My family doesn't care. So if all you have is hard wheat, just start playing with it and make notes. Once you get the final product like you want it, then write that recipe and use it to make your mixes. Hope this helps!

Great idea. I've been using homemade 'Bisquick' for years for baking. But why are you using zipper bags to store it in? There's so much waste involved, even if you reuse them a few times.

It is so handy having those mixes available, isn't it? I use the zipper bags because they are convenient to write the directions on and they lay flat in my freezer. While we do limit our plastic use in our home, I've used these exact bags for almost two years so I'm okay with it. You could use mason jars if you didn't want to use plastic.

We like waffles or soaked pancakes. This mix looks really good though. Thanks for sharing this at the HomeAcre Hop!
