One of the "Just a Pinch" members asked for a recipe to make your own Pancake Mix (with only dry ingredients). After responding to her, I thought how nice it is to be able to make your own mixes, so I am posting it here also. And I am also including the directions for mixing other ingredients with the mix to make "Perfect Pancakes." I have had this recipe since 1978 and have used it several times over the years. It is just me (and my kitty cat) now, so it takes me a good while to use it up. Enjoy this recipe and pancakes more often since you will already have the mix made; only add liquid
