Microwave pancakes stink, made a hungry man pancakes from mix and they were light and fluffy but how long will they keep in the fridge and freezer?
I don't know why you would bother with convenience here, a fresh batch of hungry jack pancakes is the fastest convenience food I can think of, defrosting pancakes and making a fresh batch take the same amount of time and effort.That is disappointing, figured I could make a bunch then just pull out 3 at a time. How do frozen pancakes do it
My grandfather used to make pancakes from scratch. He beat the egg whites till stiff and folded them in the batter. They were the lightest, fluffiest pancakes I've ever had in my life. I'd like to make them again sometime, but in the mean time Krusteaz is about as good as it gets.
Here's just one example of what you're ingesting with a prepackaged mix:
ENRICHED BLEACHED FLOUR (WHEAT FLOUR, MALTED BARLEY FLOUR, NIACIN, IRON, THIAMIN MONONITRATE, RIBOFLAVIN, FOLIC ACID), YELLOW CORN FLOUR, SUGAR, DEXTROSE, LEAVENING (BAKING SODA, CALCIUM PHOSPHATE, SODIUM ALUMINUM PHOSPHATE), CONTAINS 2% OR LESS OF: SALT, CANOLA OIL, POTASSIUM BICARBONATE, CALCIUM CARBONATE, CORN STARCH, EGGS, MONO AND DIGLYCERIDES, POLYSORBATE 60, CORN SYRUP SOLIDS, SODIUM CASEINATE, MALTODEXTRIN, PALM OIL, IRON, NIACIN, VITAMIN B6, RIBOFLAVIN, THIAMIN MONONITRATE, FOLIC ACID, VITAMIN B12.
Best made from scratch, with fresh toppings - fruit etc.
On occasion, I liked a neighborhood joint for red velvet topped with mascarpone, etc., but have to be more careful about my diet now (sugar/carbs).
I get really lost why anyone uses these pre-packaged pancake mixes. It's not rocket science mixing together a bit of flour, baking powder, and milk with an egg and a bit of butter. Is there something inconvenient about that? They're all ingredients you'll probably have kicking around, right?
