I can't make pancakes better than a mix

Jpan99 | Nov 13, 2012 07:37 AM

I keep trying recipes for pancakes but I can't match the taste I get from Trader Joe's buttermilk pancake mix. I don't even make the mix according to the package directions, I nix the eggs and just mix with milk. They have so much flavor, either plain or with added blueberries or raspberries. When I make the mix with eggs I don't like the flavor as much.

I was out of mix this past weekend so I made some from scratch and it couldn't even compare. Am I doing something wrong? The recipe I used was very basic, flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, egg, sour milk (milk with lemon juice) and melted butter. It looked fine, cooked fine but the taste was so bland. Trader Joe's mix has so much flavor.

Anyone have a basic pancake recipe that they love? I do like a thick yet fluffy pancake, not the thin kind.
