homemade buttermilk pancake/waffle mix

I've had this cookbook sitting in my collection for a VERY long time, but I've never put it to use! Until now, of course. I've been wanting to make my own bisquick for quite some time, but couldn't ever find the perfect recipe. All that time searching and I didn't even realize that I had the recipe all along. But it was worth the wait! The pancakes are delicious. They're light and fluffy yet hearty and filling. We grew up adding yogurt to our pancakes, but I'm not sure these even need that! They're delicious topped with fruit, or anything else your little heart desires.

Mix recipe
(Recipe has been modified from Make-A-Mix cookbook)
2 cups dry buttermilk powder
8 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
8 t. baking powder
4 t. baking soda
2 1/2 t. kosher salt

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and whisk to blend. Pour into a 12 cup container with lid. Store in a cool, dry place. Use within 6 months. Mix will retain its freshness longer when refrigerated.

Here's what my container looks like with the recipe taped to the front. (that's right, so there are no excuses when the husband is asked to make pancakes!)

Buttermilk pancake recipe
1 egg, beaten
2 T melted butter
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cup mix

Combine egg, oil, milk and water. Whisk in the mix until blended. Let stand 5 minutes. Stir in additional water to thin batter(if needed). Now go cook those pancakes!

Buttermilk waffle recipe
2 1/2 cups mix
1 cup water
1 cup milk
3 eggs, separated
1/4 cup melted butter

In a large bowl, combine mix, water, milk, egg yolks, and melted butter. Beat with wire wisk until just blended. In medium bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Fold whites into batter and bake according to waffle baker instructions. Makes 3-4 large waffles.
