This letter is from Dorothy L. from Oklahoma. She is writing in reference to using up the last bit of pancake mix.
Dear Sara: What do you do with leftover pancake mix? My family loves pancakes, so I make them a lot. I often have leftover mix in the box that is not enough to make another batch of pancakes. Any thoughts? –Carol
“Anadarko Daily News” Your question about what to do with leftover pancake mix.
My mother worked for a mom and pop restaurant. The “mom” did most of the cooking. When pancake mix was leftover, she added 3 or 4 Tablespoons of shortening, milk, baking powder if needed and egg and yellow cornmeal. This made a wonderful cornbread to serve with plate lunches. –Dorothy
