Buttermilk Pancake Mix

I love buttermilk pancakes but do not always have buttermilk on hand to use. Sometimes I make soured milk to use, but it takes a little time and forethought. On the SACO Buttermilk Powder container, there is a recipe for Buttermilk Pancakes that we use and really enjoy. I have adapted it and made it into a bulk mix that can be made up and save some time when you are making pancakes. I was able to find buttermilk powder in a 10 pound package much cheaper at one of the local country stores, and I store the extra in the freezer. If you have any stores near you that sell bulk foods, they are probably able to order the buttermilk powder for you at a much cheaper price than the name brands available online or in the stores.

*Note: the label in the picture has been changed since I took the picture and should not be followed for this recipe since I adjusted ingredients in the meantime.

Bulk Recipe Ingredients:

  • 10 cups all purpose flour (or up to 5 cups whole wheat pastry flour or white whole wheat flour; may also use 4 cups all purpose flour, 3 cups cake flour and 3 cups whole wheat flour)
  • 1 cup powdered milk
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered buttermilk powder
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 Tbsp + 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp + 2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 1/2 tsp salt
Bulk Directions:
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine/sift together the ingredients, being sure to mix everything together very well.
  • Store in a cool place in a well-sealed gallon container.
Below are the instructions that you can print out on a large label and affix to the side of your container. This way you always have the instructions when you are ready to make pancakes. You may need to copy/paste and adjust according to the size of your labels.

To Make Pancakes:    Makes about 10 pancakes (4 inch) 
  • 1 1/2 cups pancake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 - 1 cup water (depending on how thick you like your pancakes)
  • 2-4 Tbsp oil or melted butter
  • Measure 1 1/2 cups of pancake mix into a medium mixing bowl. 
  • In a smaller bowl, mix together egg, vanilla, water and oil.
  • Add liquids into the dry ingredients and stir just until moistened/combined, being careful to not over-mix.
  • Heat skillet or griddle on medium high heat. 
  • Drop 2-3 Tbsp of batter into greased skillet/griddle and cook until bubbles appear around the top of the pancakes. 
  • Flip over and cook for another 2-3 minutes or until other side is golden brown.
Optional add-ins:  1/4 cup applesauce or grated apples or other finely chopped fruit, 1/4 cup coconut or chopped nuts. If using chocolate or other flavored baking chips or berries, toss first in a couple Tbsp of flour to keep them from falling to the bottom of the bowl.
