Pancake mix is convenient to have on hand for easy and delicious pancakes–but there’s so much more you can do with it besides whip up a batch of pancake batter!
Did you know there are loads of things to make with pancake mix that aren’t pancakes?
Making pancakes using a mix is probably one of the first things I learned how to cook. I was able to make a flavorful breakfast for my family without a lot of measuring and mixing.
Having a little independence when learning to cook builds confidence, and a box of mix has been that building block for a lot of budding home cooks.
Pancake mix is a fairly inexpensive blend of flour, leavening agents and sugar, so it’s the perfect springboard for all kinds of delicious recipes. The best part is, it keeps things simple!
So pull that package from the recesses of your pantry and get ready to put it to work–because I think you’ll be using it more frequently once you see all the recipes you can make with pancake mix!
Whether you have a box of Bisquick baking mix, Krusteaz, Pearl Milling Company, Hungry Jack, or Mrs. Butterworth’s mix, you’re all set.
Or maybe you’re someone who prefers to make your own homemade pancake mix? No problem! You can use that for these recipes too.
Saturday morning may never be the same!

Tips For Using Pancake Mix in Other Recipes
Pancake mix is a great staple to keep on hand in your pantry and while it’s so easy to work with, here are a few tips to make sure everything goes as planned.
- Sift The Mix – The dry ingredients in mixes can sometimes get lumpy, which can prevent the ingredients from distributing evenly. In some cases, sifting the mix before using can prevent any issues.
- Use Dairy – If your baking recipe calls for water, feel free to substitute milk (or plant-based milk) or sour cream in the recipe. It will add creaminess and richness.
- Don’t Overmix – Mix enough to incorporate all the ingredients without overdoing it. Overmixing can lead to a tougher texture.
