101 Things to Do with a Pancake Mix

Top Review by whtbxrmom

Water isn't listed in the ingredients, but the directions say to add water with the egg. I just added a little at a time not sure if I wanted a dense dough or just barely a dough. I had to cook them a little longer than I wanted. When they were a light golden brown outside they weren't quite cooked in the middle. I used an apple cinnamon pancake mix and really liked the additional flavor. While they weren't exactly what we had expected, they were still good and enjoyed by all. Thank you.
