Pancake Mix Brands

Amber Bracegirdle | Bluebonnet Baker

This article takes a look at some of the most popular pancake mix brands and what we love about them.

Pancakes are almost everyone's favorite breakfast foods, especially smothered in sweet maple syrup and topped with crispy bacon!

Fluffy pancakes can be hard to perfect, but using a pancake mix makes it that bit easier. Here our some of our favorite pancake mix brands, to help you choose  the right mix when you next go shopping.

For fluffy pancakes...

Wanting to make the fluffiest pancakes? Try Krusteaz Light & Fluffy Buttermilk Comlpete pancake mix!

This mix is super simple and requires you to only add water, although it requires less liquid than many other pancake mix brands. Once you’ve combined the mix and water to create the batter, allow it to stand for a few a minutes to help thicken the batter. The crusts are amazing on these pancakes and they definitely get some height to them too, making stacking fun!

For organic pancakes...

If you want a versatile pancake mix that allows you to make switches without affecting the finished pancake, you have got to try Whole Foods Market 365 Everyday Value Organic Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix.

This mix is great for those that perhaps want to use nut milk rather than dairy milk, for example. This pancake mix helps create a lovely golden brown pancake that is light and fluffy. 

For pancakes like your mom used to make...

For pancakes like your Mom makes, Mrs. Butterworth’s Buttermilk Complete Pancake & Waffle Mix will go down a treat.

These pancakes have a rich, buttery taste and have a lovely, smooth and golden finish - definitely photo worthy pancakes!

For special pancakes...

For large, topping worthy pancakes that are great for when you have guests over, try Stonewall Kitchen Farmhouse Pancake & Waffle Mix.

Unlike other pancake mix brands that use malted barley flour, Stonewall Kitchen opts for wheat and corn flours with extracts of malted barley; this gives the pancakes a very airy finish that we love. 

For classic pancakes...

For a classic pancake mix, you can’t wrong with Aunt Jemima Original Complete Pancake & Waffle Mix.

Simply add in some water and you can get right to cooking. Not only is this pancake mix simple and delicious, it is always economically priced, so you get excellent value for your money.

Whilst the instructions do advise that you let your batter rest for 10 minutes, we would recommend doing it for just five minutes for perfectly fluffy pancakes.

For pancakes with a perfect crust...

Pancakes that have that beautiful brown crust not only look great, but also taste delicious - the perfect balance of a bit of texture with airy fluffiness.

Bob’s Red Mill Homestyle Pancake and Waffle Mix is best for creating just that! With a combination of buttermilk, butter, eggs, cream of tartar and wheat and malted barley flours, this mix is one of the best out there!
