Homemade Gluten Free Biscuit and Pancake Mix

Homemade Gluten Free Pancake and Biscuit MixThis is the last of the gluten free mixes, I promise.  I think if you have a brownie and a cake and a biscuit/pancake mix, you pretty much have all the baking mixes you need.   A basic baking mix like this one is a must.  You can make so many things with it.  I opted to make pancakes first because, if you know me, I have an ongoing love affair with pancakes and every variation of them I can imagine.  I have also made biscuits with this mix and they are melt in your mouth delicious.  You’ll see them next week when I show off some Florida Strawberries in a different “make your own”.Homemade Gluten Free Pancake and Biscuit Mix

What else can I make with this mix?  Gluten Free Impossible pies, cobbler,  scones, biscuits, waffles, shortcake and maybe even cookies!  I am thinking that I am going to get a lot of mileage out of this little mix.

  1. Very much appreciate your wonderful gluten-free recipes, Kristen. Please do not hesitate to keep them coming =) And truly grateful for all the lovely mixes you have so generously provided.

  2. Two questions. First, How much mix do you add the egg and milk to? Second, there are not any gums in this recipe (xanthan or guar). Was this intentional? Thanks! It sounds like a great mix!

    1. Hi Krista, thanks for pointing out that I forgot to add how much mix. I have fixed it now (it’s 1 1/2 cups). Yes, it was intentional to leave out the gums. I wanted to see if I could make a mix without them. If you really want the texture that the gums add, whisk in 1 tsp to the mix when you go to make a batch of pancakes.
