Are you looking for a quick and easy gift that doesn’t cost a lot of money? Just add a bottle of maple syrup to a basket and a jar of Homemade Pancakes. It makes the perfect gift for anyone!
Who loves pancakes? Just about everyone I know! But, not everyone has time to make homemade pancakes every day.
So, why not offer the delicious treat of a homemade breakfast for a gift?
My homemade pancake mix recipe started from an ancient cookbook that my Grandmother gave me shortly after I got married. I’ve altered it slightly over the years to add a little more flavor, but it is by far the best recipe for pancakes that I’ve ever found!
They turn out fluffy and delicious, every time.
This recipe is really easy to make and requires simple ingredients that you probably already have at home. Plus, it makes an awesome gift for any pancake lover on your list.
There’s so many different kinds you could make!
Here’s a few ideas…
- Chocolate Chip Pancake Mix (Add a bag of chocolate chips)
- Country Breakfast (Add a box of bacon or sausage)
- Cranberry-Nut Pancake Mix (Add a bag of dried cranberries & a bag of walnuts)
