  1. “Instant” Pancake Mix
  2. 3 cups all-purpose flour
  3. 3 cups whole wheat flour
  4. 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  5. 3 teaspoons baking powder
  6. 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  7. 3 tablespoons sugar
  8. Pancakes
  9. 2 eggs, separated
  10. 4 Tbs melted butter
  11. 2 cups skim milk
  12. 2 Tbs vinegar or lemon juice
  13. 2 cups of “Instant” Pancake Mix
  14. butter to oil the pan
  1. [I don't own a griddle but I do have a heavy-duty aluminum pan and that's what I used for this.] Turn on the burner under your pan to medium.
  2. In a multi-cup measuring cup, mix the milk, vinegar and egg whites together.
  3. In your mixing bowl, combine the egg yolks and melted butter.
  4. Add the milk mixture to the egg yolks and butter and beat well.
  5. Dump in dry mix and mix everything together.
  6. Do the “water test” on your pan. If the water dances then you’re ready to butter the pan.[Check the bottom of the post for a video showing you what I mean.]
  7. Butter your pan and wipe the extra butter off. You shouldn’t really see any butter in the pan.
  8. Pour in some batter–I didn’t measure just ended up with four pancakes each go-round.
  9. Wait until bubbles start to show up in the top of the pancake and the batter isn’t as shiny as when you first poured it in.
  10. Flip over the pancake and give it another couple of minutes.
  11. Eat up!

  2. Double the recipe and freeze the extra. Pop the frozen pancakes in the toaster in the morning for a quick, homemade breakfast!
  3. If you have buttermilk, you can use that instead of the skim milk and vinegar/lemon juice. I never buy buttermilk because I rarely cook with it so I just cheat all the time.

Believe it or not, your pancakes won’t stick to your pan if the pan is hot enough. Promise. I made 12 of these bad boys Saturday and not a one stuck. I didn’t think it was possible either but I listened to the wise man who is Alton Brown and he didn’t let me down.
Here’s the video I mentioned. Heather made it.
