Expert Tips for How to Make Cake with Pancake Mix

  • Bake Ahead: Looking for a breakfast treat for on-the-go? Distribute the coffee cake batter mixture in a muffin tin and cook until the toothpick comes out clean.
  • Substitute the Flour: If you found a recipe you like but don’t have any all purpose flour, try pancake mix instead in the dry ingredients. Pancake mix incorporates flour and leavening agents into your recipe in one easy step.
  • Add Yogurt: Are your mug pancakes not coming out as fluffy as you had hoped? Use half as much yogurt as you would mix. The acidity boosts the reaction of leavening agents. Say no more to flat pancakes!
  • Check the wattage of your microwave: Microwaves vary so it’s important to know your wattage at full power and adjust cooking time as needed.
