I don’t do much freezer cooking, but this morning when we made waffles I decided to double the batch & put the rest in the freezer for breakfast later in the week. I make my own mix adapted from a recipe by deltasky at allrecipes.com. It is quick and easy to put together and I can control exactly what goes in it. Plus, it will save us $$$!
Homemade Pancake (& waffle) Mix
2 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups powdered milk
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup baking powder
1 TBS salt
Combine all ingredients; stir to blend. Store in an airtight container for up to 8 months (Ours never lasts that long).
To make pancakes:
2 cups mix, 1 cup water, one egg and 2 tablespoons oil. Beat with a wire whisk or fork until large lumps are gone.
To make waffles:
2 cups mix, 1 1/4 cup water, one eggs and 3 tablespoons oil. Again, beat with a wire whist or fork until large lumps are gone.
This makes about 12-16 pancakes or waffles.
We made a double batch this morning. I put the left-over waffles on cookie sheets in the freezer. Once they are frozen we will seal them with our foodsaver. Then we can just pull them out of the freezer and pop them in the toaster! The kids love them!
