Cinnamon Pancake Mix

This recipe was a two-for. First, Dave is pretty handy in the kitchen and I knew he could make some pancakes when I'm busy with the baby, but I figured it be easier on both of us if I prepared some mix and he just needed to add the wet stuff. And then I thought how these would also make a great gift, along with some of my other homemade mixes. This mix is simple to make in a big batch, and super easy to turn into a gift, scooping portions into pretty bags or containers and adding a simple recipe card with the instructions for turning them into a great breakfast. And it makes a ton, so you can either stock your pantry or make a bunch of gifts (maybe you've got a bunch of teachers, coworkers or friends you want to share a little gift with) for plenty of pancakes to go around.

I'm not sure if my mom ever made this recipe from her Make a Mix Cookery cookbook, but I think it's great. Just like the sloppy Joe mix I made from the same book, the ingredients are simple and you likely have them all on hand. I did make an adjustment, adding cinnamon to the original recipe, just to give some fun festive flavor. Feel free to eliminate, replace with cocoa powder for chocolate pancakes, or just leave plan and add chocolate chips or berries when you are ready to transform this mix into a delicious pancake breakfast. You really can't go wrong with this perfect pancake base as a start.
