Waffle and Pancake Mix Tips
What can you use instead of buttermilk blend powder in waffle and pancake mix?
If you don’t have buttermilk blend powder on hand, replace the 2 cups of buttermilk blend with 2 cups of instant dry milk whisked with 1/4 cup of cream of tartar. Store the pancake and waffle mix as directed in the recipe.
How can you make fluffy pancakes with this waffle and pancake mix?
The buttermilk in this waffle and pancake mix is sure to give you fluffy pancakes. For fluffiest results, make sure to beat the wet ingredients as directed to incorporate air before adding the dry mix. Mix dry ingredients in gently. Most importantly, let the batter rest for 5 minutes before cooking to allow the eggs and baking powder (the leavening agents) do their job. And if even that’s not fluffy enough, separate your eggs before mixing. Add yolks to wet ingredients and beat, then add dry mix as directed. In a separate bowl, beat whites until soft peaks form, then gently fold into batter.
What else can you add to waffles and pancakes to make them your own?
Top pancakes with fresh blueberries, raspberries or chocolate chips before flipping for a classic brunch
treat. Try them with Dutch honey syrup
or serve them alongside a yogurt breakfast drink
. You can also opt for a more savory pancake or waffle by reducing the sugar in the recipe to 2 tablespoons. Add scallions or grated cheese and herbs on top, along with a poached egg or sliced avocado (or both!). —Catherine Ward, Taste of Home Prep Kitchen Manager
