We all love digging into a stack of delicious pancakes for breakfast or during those breakfast-for-dinner nights happen. But do you how to make a pancake? Like really make the best pancake and choose the best mix to use? Read our complete pancake mix buying guide to get the pancake 101 lesson.
The first pancakes date all the way back to the Romans in the first century CE. They were making a treat they called alita dolcia in Latin, made from milk, flour, eggs, and spices.
It's crazy to think that pancakes have existed for almost 2,000 years, and are still popular! If anything, pancakes have become more popular in recent decades. What restaurant that serves breakfast doesn’t offer up a steaming, stack smothered in syrup?
You don’t have to wait for a breakfast out to enjoy these treats, either. You can easily begin making pancake breakfasts in your home with either a griddle or a frying pan! Simply preheat your griddle to 375F and begin baking magic in your kitchen. The high temperature makes the pancakes fluff up, while also giving you a crispy outer shell. We're drooling just thinking about it!
Next, pick your pancake mix. There are so many to choose from, but we're nothing if not thorough. In this pancake guide we explain our entire pancake breakfast lineup to help you out when choosing your pancake mix. Don't forget to stock your favorite mixes in your cupboard or pantry so you have it whenever the morning (or night) craving strikes!

Buttermilk pancakes are one of our favorite breakfasts to have; coincidentally, it's also our top selling pancake mix!

If you’re looking to get creative with your toppings, we've got plenty of ideas (like our Cheesecake Pancakes). By adding just a couple of extra ingredients to your batter, like vanilla, and making a sweet cream cheese filling, your breakfast stack can reach a completely new level of flavor.
