Betty Crocker Shake to Make Pancake Mix
Advantages: see review
Disadvantages: see review
Now how could I forget it was pancake day, well my kids was not too happy, so we had to trail to the corner shop and was expecting to have to pay a silly price. They had two of these left on the shop counter so decided to buy both.
The pancake comes in a milk like carton, with basic stickers stuck to it, with all the ingredients printed on it and instructions on how to come them. I would say the carton is about the size of 5 pints maybe a little more. It's pretty basic and cheap packaging but its all that is necessary. The lid is red and just screws off and on really easily without having to use up to much energy.
Well I was expecting to pay over the odds, like you usually do from a corner shop, but I was shocked to find this at only £1, I think it was only so cheap, as it did have a retail price on the pack. I think these were just a promotional price, so prices may be higher else where.
How to cook
This is the easiest pancake mix I have ever had to do. You have all the ingredient in the pack already so all you have to add is water. The instructions are on the label.
to start you need to bang the carton to loosen all the powder, then on the carton you have a fill line, fill the carton with water up to this line, and re4place the lid make sure the lid is screwed on tight, otherwise the mixture will go everywhere. Then grab the handle and give the carton a real good shake for around 60 seconds.
Heat up a little bit of oil, make sure the oil is got or the pancakes won't turn out right, pour some mixture in the frying pan and wait until all the mixture goes hard, get your spatula and put under the pancake to ensure it is not sticking to the frying pan, and keep checking the bottom until it is golden brown, you can then turn it over, or if your brave try and toss it, i was not brave enough to try this loll. Once both sides are golden brown serve on a plate.
How many does it make
Well the packet states that it makes 6 but in my opinion this must be for pretty small frying pans as I only managed to get 3 decent sized pancakes out of mine so just beware you may need more cartons if you need to do quite a few pancakes.
Best to serve with
Gravy (although this is one I have never tried but I have been told its nice loll)
Wheat Flour, Sugar, Raising Agents: Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Monocalcium Phosphate; Vegetable Oil, Dextrose, Egg White Powder, Egg Yolk Powder, Salt, Skimmed Milk Powder.
My overall opinion
I really liked the taste of these pancakes, and they were so easy to make. I have never made any that you don't really have to mix yourself, and for the price I paid then you can't go wrong. My kids really loved helping me make these and they sat and ate the lot, then wanted me to make more.
I would recommend buying these to anyone, I will go as far as saying they are the best and easiest pancakes to make.
