Here is quick and easy pancake mix that makes a nice gift in a fabric gift bag. Pair it with a little container of maple syrup to make it extra special. I love the idea of using a fabric bag, which took less than five minutes to make. The fabric gift bag and pancake mix idea come from the blog, Paths of Wrighteousness.
Cinnamon Oat Pancakes
recipe from Martha
For the mix:
2 cups all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
Take one cup of the oats and put in a food processor (or blender). Pulse until the oats are coarsely ground.
Combine the remaining ingredients and add the pulsed oats.
Stir until thoroughly combined. Place in quart size ziplock bag and set aside.
To make the fabric bag you need a piece of fabric 20 inches long and 8 inches wide. Cut your fabric to size. I folded my fabric (so it was 10 by 8 with the fold at the bottom) and cut with a rotary cutter and mat.
Cut the top of the fabric with pinking shears to give a nice touch to the top edge.
Turn the fabric right sides together, and pin the sides, leaving the top pinked edge open.
Sew up both sides. You can do this step by hand if you don't have a machine.
Turn the bag right sides out and place your pancake mix inside.
Tie with a ribbon.
Add a label with the following instructions: "Whisk together 2 eggs with 1/4 cup melted butter (or oil) and 2 cups of milk. Stir in pancake mix. Cook pancakes on oiled griddle over medium heat for 1-2 minutes; flip and cook until browned on bottoms, about 1-2 minutes longer."
These fabric bags are a great way to give any homemade mix. Thank you Jill for a great idea and thanks to Travis for the great pictures!
