Hungry Jack pancake mixes, sold at most grocery stores, comes in both Complete and Original formulas. The Complete pancake mixes only need water added, while the Original mixes require the addition of eggs, oil and milk to make the pancake batter. Package instructions suggest that you let your pancake batter sit for a few minutes after mixing to allow the batter to settle. This helps keep air bubbles out of your pancakes.

Complete Mix

Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. If you are using an electric griddle, set the heat to 375 degrees.

Mix 2 1/4 cups water and 3 cups Hungry Jack Complete pancake mix in a large bowl. Stir gently until the big lumps are gone. The batter will be a little bit lumpy.

Pour just under 1/4 cup of batter onto the skillet or griddle for each pancake.

Cook until bubbles form on the top of the pancake.

Flip the pancakes over and cook for 1 more minute or until the pancakes are cooked the way you prefer.

Serve the pancakes hot with butter and maple syrup or whatever toppings you desire.

Original Mix

Grease a skillet and put it on the stove at medium heat.

Mix 2 cups Hungry Jack Original pancake mix, 2 tbsp. vegetable oil, 2 eggs and 1 1/2 cups milk in a bowl. Mix thoroughly until the batter is blended. It should be partially lumpy.

Add 1/4 cup of batter to the skillet and repeat for each pancake.

Cook the pancakes for 1 1/2 minutes on each side. If you like a well-done pancake, leave them in the skillet for up to 2 1/2 minutes. Repeat this process until you have 18 pancakes.


Hungry Jack also offers Easy Pack pancake mixes. These require the same proportions of ingredients and cooking instructions as the Complete pancake mixes.
