Annie’s Best Buttermilk Pancake Mix

3 3/4 cups flour

1/4 cup sugar

4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons soda

1 teaspoon salt

Mix together and store in a large zip-lock bag, or in an air-tight container. You can store this mix for up to 2 months for optimum freshness.

To make pancakes:

This recipe will make about 6 5-inch pancakes

Heat your griddle over medium high to high heat.

In a medium mixing bowl: Place 1 cup of mix

In a another medium bowl, whisk together until smooth:

1 beaten egg

2 tablespoons melted butter (preferably unsalted butter)

1/2 cup buttermilk (shake container well before measuring)

1/2 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Stir this mixture into dry ingredients until combined and not over mixed.

Lightly butter your griddle and pour your pancakes. Cook until bubbles form and pop in the middle of the pancake surface and the edges appear dry. Flip and cook for about 4-5 more minutes, until the underside is lightly browned.
