If need a super last minute gift that will give the recipient a hassle free morning these shake and pour pancakes are perfect.  I even have a free printable label. All the ingredients can be found right at the grocery store. If you like a little more spice in your pancakes, my cinnamon shake and pour pancakes are just as easy to make. Gifts in a jar are easy to assemble and make great homemade gifts.

This recipe calls for the usual pancake ingredients like flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt but to make it so one just needs to add water I have used powdered egg replacer and powdered buttermilk.

    Has anyone been able to print the labels correctly? My label prints but there is a cut out section where the word Pancake should be. I have tried many, many times on different pins to print the labels. No luck.

      Make sure you adobe and a recent version. I just printed them out again to make sure they are still working and mine printed fine. You also could email the file to your local copy shop and ask them to print on 1 up (solid sheet) of sticky label paper. This will get you the best copy.

    Thanks for this - definitely going to make these for presents. Could you add a vanilla bean to the mix?

    Thanks for the great idea!
    Do you print at home? What printer do you have? I just broke mine and am looking for a good one in a reasonable price range. Your suggestions would be appreciated.

    So your refrigerator comment confused me...can it sit out, in it's dry form?

      Marcia, I let ours sit out. I just felt I needed to mention that on the side of the powdered buttermilk can it says refrigerate after opening

    I have left mine out a couple of days and it seemed fine. I keep my powdered buttermilk in the refrigerator also. If I wasn't going to use right away I would stick it in the refrigerator to be safe.

    I like this idea. Does the mix need to be refrigerated or can it be stored at room temperature? I ask because I always keep my buttermilk powder in the fridge.
