    Other uses for pancake mix?

    I bought a Costco size box of Lehi Roller Mills pancake mix. It is a 'just add water' type of mix. I love it but got to wondering if there's anything I can do with it besides make pancakes or waffles. Has anyone converted it to, say, muffins or coffeecake or anything? Any suggestions/recipes are greatly appreciated.

    TIA,

    Kate

    PS the ingredients in the mix are: Bleached Enriched Flour ( Wheat Flour, Niacin, Iron, Thiamin Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), 100% Whole Wheat Flour, Wheat Starch, Sugar, Soy Flour, Soybean Oil, Dextrose, Buttermilk Powder, Modified Corn Starch, Leavening (sodium bicarbonate, sodium acid phosphate, monocalcium phosphate), Salt, Egg.

    Have you checked the website of the company? We used to have a ton of Krusteaz pancake mix from Sam's. It was getting close to expiration, so I went to their website and found all kinds of recipes for using it up.

    I recall using for a coffeecake of some kind, but can't say for sure.

    Great idea, but no such luck on Lehi's web site. I'll check some others.

    Thanks,

    I don't have any recipes, but I've seen where people have used pancake mix as coating/batter for onion rings or other vegetables.

    Good idea, Terri!

    I was going to try making muffins with it this weekend, adding some applesauce and whatever else strikes me to try. I'll post if there is any success -- I may end up with hockey puck muffins.

    Thanks,

    Kate
