Saturday Morning Panny Cakes

“Time saving tip: Gather a hand-ful of quart-size zipper bags. Haul out the dry ingredients and measure & sift into bags. Label bag "Pancake Mix" and store in a cool, dark cabinet. At meal-time, combine one bag with wet ingredients. Make up a bunch of bags at once, breakfast will come together that much quicker! The original for this recipe came in the box with a blender we received as a wedding present back in 1978. I've tweaked it into solid breakfast perfection!”
30 3-4-inch cakes
