Paying for Convenience - Eating For Pleasure

I normally like to make things like waffles and pancakes from scratch, but there are days when time is short and you don't want the hassle of mixing all of the ingredients. I suppose you could buy them frozen and pre-made, but I think a mix like this is a good compromise.

Shirley J Buttermilk Pancake & Waffle Mix is easy to prepare, and the light, fluffy end-product tastes great. The plain pancakes are amazing and you can always add extras if you want--blueberries, banana, chocolate chips, etc.. My kids prefer them plain with a drizzle of maple syrup. Waffles are my favorite, but you need to add an extra egg and some oil when making them. No big deal, but it adds an extra step or two. They'll never top my Mom's homemade waffles, but if you add a little nutmeg and cinnamon, they come close.

The ingredients list is fairly wholesome, if not health store level, and one pancake (estimated at 57 grams) is 100 calories; before syrup or extra butter. My one concern is that sodium levels are rather high at approximately 340mg (14%). Three pancakes and you are almost at half the recommended daily allowance. Still, pancakes and waffles are usually a weekend treat so it isn't too big a deal.

Each four pound bag of mix will yield about 90 pancakes so you're looking at 11¢ per pancake, before shipping costs. Not a bad deal. If you don't want make them from scratch, and don't want to use frozen, then buttermilk pancakes and waffle made from the Shirly J mix could be your answer.

For an extra-indulgent treat, try making a sandwich from 2 waffles and some creamy coffee ice cream. Top it with whipped cream if you like. Now THAT's good eatin'!

These sound amazing, I'm not a huge fan of frozen. That waffle ice cream sandwich sounds like quite a treat! Thanks :)
