Neighborhood Gift Idea #9: Blender Wheat Pancake Mix

We’re talking about some great neighborhood gifts that you can give that have food storage in it and we’re getting into the really good stuff now! We’re going green this Christmas and using packaging from other items (i.e. tin cans, peanut butter bottles, frosting containers, etc.) to wrap our presents instead of filling the landfills! This is also great for you because it will save you money…after all you’re paying for this packaging, you may as well get some more use out of it! Now before we begin I need to show you a couple of things so that you can be successful at using whatever you have around the house to cover the lids. (Trust me you are going to love this and it’s much easier and CUTER than you think. :) *Note: in the video I say to measure the circumfrence of the jar or can and I meant the diameter…

Neighborhood Gift Idea #3: Blender Wheat Pancake Mix…in a Tin Can

Now, that we have that out of the way we can talk about putting a mix for blender wheat pancakes in our tin cans. Now, I used a 14.25 oz. tin can (from our Cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving). You can use cans you may have around the house that are slightly smaller or larger than that…just make sure you wash them first. Watch the video to see how it’s done. (The label I show on the can isn’t the one I have for you to download…I made it much cuter for you!)

For Reference, here are the items you need for your mix:
1 C. Whole Wheat Berries

In Dry Mix baggy:
3 T. dry powdered milk (non-instant…if you use instant it would be 1/3 C.)
2 T. powdered eggs
2 tsp Baking Powder
1-1/2 tsp Salt
2 Tbs. Sugar

The Very Cute Label (don’t you agree? :)

    Love the concept of the blender wheat pancakes. Just tried to fix for lunch. 5 minutes was to long for my VitaMix blender. I should have been paying closer attention. Almost had cooked cream of wheat. I’ll try again later as this sounds like such a quick and easy breakfast or supper. We like to have breakfast for supper. I appreciate the effort you put into your recipes and videos and your sharing spirit in offering the recipes freely.

    Yes, definitely it’s too long if you are using a “super blender” It takes a minute max! Good luck!
