I occasionally went to Bakers Square for breakfast and they had good pancakes, but they recently closed.
Does anyone know of a good pancake mix? I know this seems like a strange question, but I've literally tried every single brand in the store and they all suck pretty bad. I don't know what else to try.

I'm willing to make my own if necessary and will combine flour, baking soda and whatever else to get the best stuff.
Anybody have any ideas or some good recipes?

Pancake batter is a simple recipe. There are tons of variations online. If you have a free morning, pick one that sounds good and experiment.

Believe it or not, I use the now-racial Aunt Jemima "just add water" mix then blend in some vanilla extract. Makes some pretty good flapjacks.
YUP.

i tend to stick to the just add water pre mixes, and have good results. the key is to use lots of butter while cooking. butter the pan, cook 1 side, flip, add butter to top, take off, add more butter while resting / cooking remaining cakes. serve with more butter and syrup.

I always liked IHOP pancakes so found this online.... Maybe it was because I always had them when drunk though. :bowrofl:

^^ That's your basic pancake batter recipe. You can add whatever you want to it. Chocolate chips, blueberries, make it fluffier, make it more dense, whatever you like.

My advice is to throw the mixes in the trash.

My pancake recipe:

1.5 cups flour
3 Tsp baking powder
1 Tsp salt
1.5 Tsp sugar

Sift all dry ingredients together well

1 large egg
1.5 cups of milk
4 Tbsp melted butter (can also use 1/4 cup cooking oil instead of butter)

Beat egg and mix in oil and milk separately

Add wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Don’t use a mixer, stir together until lumps are nearly gone. It’s ok to have some small lumps remaining. Adjust final consistency by alternatively adding Tbsp of milk or flour.

Cook on cast iron griddle (or Blackstone flat top grill if you are a TCG baller)

+1 for Kodiak cakes. They're the real deal. Im a savory breakfast guy, skillet or die 90% of the time. But these, and from scratch french toast or fruited up blintz's are really good.

Just got some Bisquick today since that's the only mix I haven't tried yet. The stuff is not near the pancake mix, but instead in the cake mix isle.
If that fails, I'm going to experiment with the recipes posted here.
