We take our pancakes and waffles very seriously here at Stonewall Kitchen. After many years of perfecting jams, jellies, sauces, mustards and the rest of our product collection, we turned our attention to pancake mix in 2000. “Our Farmhouse Pancake & Waffle Mix is definitely a spark off other things. We had made so many different jams and syrups over the years, and we needed a really great pancake and waffle mix to complement them,” says Jonathan.
But what makes them so special? We think our secret ingredient of malted flour makes our Farmhouse Pancake & Waffle Mix perfection. It not only makes our pancakes light and fluffy, but it also creates a rich vanilla aroma and flavor that’s simply delicious. “The malt and vanilla gives our mix that extra boost to turn your pancake batter into something really special,” says Michele Cole, Product Developer. A tip from our kitchen? Try using buttermilk in place of regular milk for extra fluffy pancakes.
After the launch of our pancake & waffle mix in 2000, it quickly became a top seller. In fact, it still is! Our guests regularly tell us it makes the best pancakes they’ve ever had. We think so too! And best of all? You can use it for more than pancakes and waffles. Our Recipe Developer has found that the mix makes delicious cookies, muffins and even cookie bars.
For an extra special morning, we love to add pecans and Maine Maple Syrup to our batter and top our pancakes with maple glazed apples for a breakfast that will taste like dessert. Check out the recipe below and try it for yourself!
