This morning I got up a bit early and got started on my pancakes from Nigella Lawson’s Homemade Instant Pancake Mix, solely to try to use my  new pancake warmer…

We originally had this on one of our registries, then it went on sale and we took it off, giving up on the hopes of lovely fluffy, warm pancakes. Then I was lucky enough to be working in Richmond for a bit and we ended up with this lovely little guy in our possession.  pancakes 003

The mix is simple to assemble and store. I added some cinnamon and nutmeg to mine. I’m looking forward to using it for some delicious waffles as well. It looks like I will have to start making more breakfast dinners soon. pancakes 005

Pancake mix:

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons sugar
Pancake batter:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
For the pancake mix:


Mix the above ingredients together and store in a jar.

For the pancake batter:

For each 1 cup pancake mix, add 1 egg, 1 cup milk, and 1 tablespoon melted butter. Do not overmix.

Heat a flat griddle or pan over medium-high heat.

Spoon drops of 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of batter onto the hot griddle and when bubbles appear on the surface of the little pancakes, flip them over to make them golden brown on both sides. A minute or so a side should do it.
