Buttermilk Waffle & Pancake Mix

  I really don’t do mixes often. Not enough storage room for one thing. One I do give space to is Pancake and waffle mix. When I saw this recipe in Sue’s  Make a Mix book I thought I would have to try it. 
  Well, I must report that it was very easy to make, very little fuss and we tried it for waffles and I will be making this again. I buy powdered buttermilk often so usually have it on hand. The rest of the ingredients are also items I have on hand, I think most households will have these items in their cupboards so this is easy to make.

Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix
2 cups dry buttermilk powder
8 cups all purpose flour
½ cup sugar
8 teaspoons baking powder
4 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons salt
  In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Stir with a wire whisk (I used my hands at the end to make sure it was all mixed) until evenly distributed. Pour into a 12 cup container with a tight fitting lid. Label and store in a cool dry place. Use within 6 months. Makes about 10 ½ cups of mix.
Here is their recipe for waffles.
2 ½ cups buttermilk waffle mix
2 cups water (remember the milk is in the mix)
3 eggs separated
¼ cup vegetable oil
 Preheat waffle baker. In a large bowl combine mix, water, egg yolks and oil. Beat with a wire whisk until just blended. In a medium bowl, beat egg whites until stiff*. Fold into egg yolk mixture. Bake according to your waffle baker instructions. Makes 3 to 4 large waffles. These must be made on a very large waffle iron. 
  Half of this amount made 4 waffles on my waffle iron. You can always stir up some more if you need it. I would go with the smaller amount unless you have a lot to feed.
  *I just beat the whole eggs together and added to mix. Worked fine. I am not going to dirty another bowl if I don’t have too.
  **To vary the waffles stir in ½ cup chopped pecans or dried or fresh blueberries into batter.
Buttermilk Pancakes
1 large egg, beaten
2 tablespoons salad oil
1 cup water, more if desired
1 ½ cups Buttermilk pancake and waffle mix
In a medium bowl, combine egg, oil and 1 cup of water.  With a wire whisk, stir in pancake mix until blended.  Let stand 5 minutes.  If a thinner batter is desired, stir in more water.
Preheat griddle and lightly oil.  Pour about 1/3 cup batter on hot griddle to make 1 pancake.  Cook until edge is dry and bubbles form.  Turn with a wide spatula and cook 35 5o 45 seconds longer until browned.

Makes ten 4 inch pancakes.
