Katy’s camping pancake mix

Bulk pancake mix – enough for a family of 4 on a week?s camping (or a family of 3 for a week and a bit left over for lazy days afterwards ;) )

1 & 2/3 cups dry milk (supermarket own brands are fine, should be with the coffee white etc)

1 cup + 1 Tbs dry egg (Supercook do this, it should be on the baking isle)

[dry whole eggs here]

1 cup + 1 Tbs sugar (granulated is fine, you don?t need to waste good castar sugar on this)

1 Tbs salt 2 Tbs baking powder 7 & 1/2 cups plain (white) flour – you can use some brown flour in this (2 or 3 cups) , it makes them SERIOUSLY filling but the batter is a bit thinner/runnier as the bran does not absorb the water as fast so the pancakes are a little thinner (which can be a bonus as they cook faster!)

Put the lot into a huge bowl and mix – if like me you don?t have a huge bowl, split each ingredient 50/50 and mix in 2 bowls! if you have a food processor then blitz the milk powder for a few seconds so it?s more powdery and less granular so it will disolve faster.

Store in a big airtight tub. Ours is one that came from the cheap shop full of mis-shape biscuits but most supermarkets sell ?tupper? copies now and a big cereal one would do really well for this.

To use 1 cup of dry mix + 1 cup cold water. Mix really well. if you want them a bit richer you can at 1 Tbs oil but I never do. Leave to stand a few minutes.

Spray a small frying pan with ?Fry light? (buttery one is good) or put in some butter/oil. get it hot then pour in about 1/4 cup of batter. Cook until it?s nearly dry on top then flip over and cook a few more seconds.

These are ?American? pancakes so are quite thick, more like overgrown Scotch ones than like Shrove Tuesday ones and 1 or 2 is usually enough to fill you up.
