As extreme pancake lovers, you can bet that we’ve done our fair share of experimenting with flavors to see which combination of ingredients results in the best taste. How have you experimented in the kitchen before? Keeping our focus on pancakes, there are a ton of ways that you can use pancake mix when baking, with the outcome not always having to be a fluffy breakfast meal. Below, learn three alternative uses for pancake mix – we bet you haven’t thought of these before!

Sugar Cookies

Grab some pancake mix, butter/margarine, eggs and sugar and you’ve got everything you need to whip up a batch of your favorite cookies! For every 4 cups of pancake mix that you use, add 3/4 cup of butter or margarine, 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar and 2 eggs into a bowl, then mix! Once you’ve got your dough all you need to do is break it apart into what will be individual cookies and bake for about 5 minutes in an oven set to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Apple Pancake Rings

If you love apples and pancakes separately, then you’ll definitely love them combined. All you need to whip up this delicious dessert is some pancake mix, buttermilk, pumpkin pie spice, lemon zest and apples. With a prep time of just 10 minutes and a cook time of just 20, you can be munching on this sweet, sweet snack before you know it! For the full recipe and baking instructions, click here.
