Homemade Bulk Pancake Mix - soft, fluffy pancakes made using simple ingredients from a mason jar. All you need to do is add milk and eggs and breakfast is almost ready. This is an easy breakfast recipe to keep on hand. It also makes a great mason jar gift idea for the holidays or to give as a hostess gift with the FREE printable tags. Let me show you how easy this recipe is to put together.
The one thing I really love to do for the holiday season is give homemade gifts to family and friends. A few years ago, I made my recipe for Overnight Cinnamon Rolls and gave them as a Freezer Friendly Recipe with printables so my friends wouldn't have to worry about making breakfast on Christmas morning.
For gifts this year, I thought it would be fun to give the recipe for homemade bulk pancake mix that I've been using for years.This way when we want pancakes for breakfast all I need to do is get my mason jar with the pre-made mix and start cooking. It really does make life easier.
This recipe tastes so much better than what you would normally purchase in a box from a grocery store!

A few of our favorite toppings for homemade pancakes:
- Butter and warm maple syrup. It helps that our daughter-in-law is from Vermont and we now have the best syrup available to us!
- I love making Homemade Strawberry Sauce.
- Homemade Blueberry Sauce to pour on top of the pancakes is my hubby's favorite.
- And you can't beat fresh fruit with maybe whipped cream!
- These pancakes even freeze well! So if you happen to have leftovers, lay them flat on a baking tray lined with parchment baking sheets and place in the freezer to "flash freeze" for about 30 minutes or so.
- Next, remove them from the baking tray and place the frozen pancakes in a freezer safe bag. You then have pancakes for busy mornings that you can easily reheat in the microwave.
How to Print the Labels
Once you sign up for my newsletter you'll be able to print out the labels to use when you make your own Pancake Mix as a Gift or just to use for your own kitchen.
- I recommend printing the labels on card stock paper for the gift tags. Regular printer paper will be fine for the baking instructions.
- Cut out the labels and adhere to the mason jars using double side tape. Add the homemade gift tags using red and white twine. You now have a great hostess gift ready for all your holiday gift-giving needs.
