When cooking from scratch there are a few pantry staples one needs to get away from. Namely those store bought on hand items such as a pancake mix. If I am not mistaken, pancake mix was one of the first items to leave my pantry list once I began. When I discovered how simple they were to make it was downright shocking. Since this initial shock, I have found most pre packaged items to be the same.

Pancake mix is a typical pantry item that people many keep on hand. This recipe allowed me to venture away from a boxed mix; While opening up more possibilities to eliminate more.

Pancakes are a weekly meal, namely on the weekends for us. Weekend mornings I love to stand over a hot griddle, coffee brewing and cartoons blasting in the background. It is a memory for the highlight reel of my life. Watching a child get excited for the stack of pancakes plopped on the table is a ritual that I never tire of. This recipe is quick to make and the items , are easy to keep on hand.

Be sure to try my Pumpkin Pancakes, a delicious variation of pancakes that are the perfect way to welcome fall.
