I developed this convenient pancake mix to keep on hand for mornings when I'm pressed for time. Served with locally made maple syrup, these sweet and fluffy pancakes are a big hit.

"This is a very good recipe. I will definately use it again. It is as good if not better than store bought mixes. I was out of milk so I used buttermilk and it is good that way too."
