The pancake mix is an easy preparation, also excellent as a homemade gift idea. It is a mix in a jar that is very simple to package, capable of surprising your closest friends, who will only have to incorporate the liquid ingredients, reported together with the instructions on a practical label: in a few minutes, they will obtain delicious pancakes, perfect for breakfast for adults and children.

To make it, just distribute the flour in layers, mixed with a pinch of salt, sugar, vanilla and baking powder inside a clean and sterilized glass jar, equipped with an airtight seal. All you have to do is attach a note with the procedure and cooking, a colored ribbon for garnishing and you're done.

The pancake mix, ready to use like the classic industrial preparations, but much more genuine and healthy, is ideal for those who have little time to spend in the kitchen or do not have a food scale: simply pour it into a bowl, add the eggs, a glass of milk at room temperature and 2 tablespoons of seed oil, to obtain a smooth and velvety mixture, to be cooked on a very hot non-stick pan buttered with a knob of butter.

You can customize the preparation according to your personal tastes, replacing the 00 flour with wholemeal flour or, for a gluten-free version, with rice flour; furthermore, you can opt for brown sugar and, for an even tastier result, add some dark chocolate chips to the powders.
