1 ¾ cup milk                  Dry milk powder *                 2 cups

Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and gently whisk them together, mixing just until combined.

Spoon ¼ cup batter onto the griddle for each pancake.

When using the mix

Use 3 cups of the mix combined with the melted butter, the honey and 2 + cups of water. It will seem runny at first but will get thicker.

*If you don’t have powdered milk or powdered eggs you can make the mix without them. When making the batter use 2 ½ cups of the dry mix with the wet ingredients as called for.
