Pancake Mix Reviews:


Willow Creek Mill Pancake & Waffle Mix

  • Whole Wheat Pancake Mix. Grain mix: whole wheat flour, unbleached flour. The batter was prepared with the optional butter and a pinch of (optional) salt; it was of a good consistency. There was less rise than some. The finished pancakes were just sweet enough to eat without syrup, but they’re even better with it. The pancakes have a nice, wheaty flavor, with a texture neither too dense nor too fluffy. A favorite.
  • Wild Rice Pancake Mix. Grain mix: unbleached flour, wild rice flour. When prepared according to package instructions, the batter was too thin. The pancakes have a good rise. The finished pancakes are tender, delicate and just sweet enough without syrup. Good.

Wood Prairie Farm Pancake Mixes

All of the mixes I tried from this company resulted in batters that were too thin initially, but the batters thickened almost immediately to a consistency fine for pancakes. All of the mixes made pancakes that rose nicely during baking and achieved good browning.

  • Organic Acadian Buckwheat Pancake Mix. Grain mix: organic whole wheat flour, organic buckwheat flour. These are hearty pancakes, with an unmistakably stronger (but not unpleasant) grain flavor. Slightly too much salt.
  • Organic Oatmeal Whole Wheat Pancake Mix. Grain mix: organic whole wheat flour, rolled oats. The finished pancakes have a slight “chew” from the oat flakes in the batter, a nice touch. The finished pancakes are too salty and taste a little “floury.”
  • Organic Spelt Pancake Mix. The pancakes are light-textured with a very light grain flavor, good for whole grain beginners or kids. Slightly too salty.
  • Organic Whole Wheat Pancake Mix. Grain: organic whole wheat flour. While baking, the pancakes did not have the usual multitude of small bubbles forming on the uncooked surface. They have a hearty flavor, but are too salty.
