pancakes in a jar - adding merriment to mixes {#reciperedux}

I am a pancake fanatic. It is the one thing I make often and well. They always come out super delicious. So when I saw that this month's Recipe Redux challenge was to make a mix from scratch, I knew what I had to do! And what a great way to make a personal gift for someone this holiday season.
This is the perfect gift: the entire recipe only consists of 1 cup flour and some other powders, so it fits nicely in these pretty canning jars I found at Fish's Eddy. If you're in the NY area and have not been to this store go now! It is fabulous. Ad a pretty ribbon with instructions and you're done. Easy peasy!

Pancakes in a Jar

1 cup flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar

Instructions for Label

In a bowl mix together until frothy: 1 egg, 1 cup milk, and 2 tablespoons oil. Add mix and combine.  Heat a frying pan on medium heat with 4 tablespoons oil until water spits when dropped into it. Using a ladle, pour three circles of batter and wait until the sides are bubbly and firm, about 5 minutes. Using a spatula, flip each cake over and wait until cooked, about 5 minutes. Press cakes to make sure the insides are fully cooked. Serve with you favorite toppings.



  1. Fish's Eddy is probably one of my favorite places in NYC!! Have to stop by there for some cute jars. I am a pancake-making failure so I need to try your blend!

  2. Pancakes in a jar basically just changed my life, I can't wait to try this! Also I love Fish's Eddy too, I can buy so much there!

  3. Thanks for the recipe! I made them this weekend and the flavor was great (got two thumbs up from the kids -- so four thumbs I guess). I only used one teaspoon of oil in the pan (the recipe said to use four tablespoons of oil in the pan) and they were perfect. Letting the batter sit for about 10-15 minutes made them puff up better (the later pancakes were fluffier than the first few). I will definitely make them again!
