I don’t like mornings.
I don’t like being woken up earlier than my body would on its own and I never have; when I was born, the nurses in the hospital complained to my parents that I was too grumpy when they woke me up to feed me. Twenty-four years later, you’re still liable to get grumped at if you are the one waking me up.
Needless to say, I also don’t much like making anything too complicated for breakfast. When you’re in a near-catatonic state, it’s really just best to avoid anything that requires too much thinking or measuring. Pancake mixes are perfect for people like me: dump into a bowl, add one or two extra ingredients, and cook.
True to form, I had to take Bisquick mix – really the ultimate mix, since it can be used to make everything from pancakes to biscuits to shortcakes to, heck, even casserole recipes – and come up with a homemade version. If you’re moving at a glacial pace, this mix might take you five minutes to make, and it uses ingredients that I guarantee you already have in your kitchen. The best part is that you can use it, cup for cup, in any recipe that uses Bisquick mix.
Pancake breakfasts just got a whole lot easier. Thank heavens.
