Pancakes for dinner. Growing up, those are super exciting words. Then to find out that you were having Aunt Jemima pancakes, that is when you knew that it was going to be an unforgettable night. So do you know how to make the Aunt Jemima pancakes recipe?

Learn all of the tricks to making the perfect fluffy pancakes here today. 

The best part about using Aunt Jemima pancake mix to make pancakes is that you can make the simple mix just using the box instructions; or you can add extra ingredients and create something unique down the line! 

Aunt Jemima pancakes are an endless opportunity for fantastical taste combinations. For instance, you can make eggnog pancakes or cranberry pancakes. One of my favorite Aunt Jemima pancakes recipes that we make the most is banana pancakes. 

Pancake mixes like this one make life so much easier. Sure, you can make homemade from scratch pancakes or homemade from scratch cake, but this gal doesn’t have that kind of time on the regular. 

I’ve found that starting with a foundation and then improving upon it makes life so much easier.

How to make Aunt Jemima’s pancakes

Step 1: Add the milk, eggs, oil, and banana to a mixing bowl. Mix this until the ingredients are thoroughly combined.

Step 2: Slowly add in the Aunt Jemima pancake mix and stir to combine with the liquid. Set the mixture aside to rest for 10 minutes. 

Step 3: Heat a medium skillet over medium-low heat.

Step 4: Add a pat of butter or oil to the hot skillet.

Step 5: Pour ¼ cup of the pancake batter into the skillet. 

Step 5: Pour ¼ cup of the pancake batter into the skillet. 

Step 5: When the pancake starts to bubble, and the edges look golden, flip the pancake. A tip to know when the pancake is ready to flip is to watch for bubbles that are popping. Also, those edges should be golden. This should take about 5 to 7 minutes before you need to flip.

Step 6: Cook pancake for another 5 minutes until both sides are golden brown.

Tips from the pros

  • Don’t overmix the pancake batter. Only mix the batter by hand. Don’t use an electric mixer. You want air bubbles in the batter. This is what helps them be fluffy.
  • If your Aunt Jemima pancake mix is a bit old, add ¼ to ½ teaspoon of baking powder to the mix. 
  • If your pancakes are too big, they will be difficult to flip. Small pancakes are charming and easier to cook. 
  • The pancakes are ready to flip when you start seeing tiny bubbles pop. You can also flip up the edges to check that they are golden brown.
  • You can make these pancakes in advance. Then you can reheat the pancakes later.

What to serve with pancakes?

There are so many ways to serve pancakes. We rarely have pancakes the same way because we like to mix it up. 

However, we almost always have bacon with our flapjacks. Here are a few ideas of sides for pancakes that you will love.

Pancake toppings and variations

  • Add pumpkin spice and a dash of cinnamon to your pancake batter for a delicious fall flavor. 
  • Add a teaspoon of maple syrup to the batter.
  • Sliced fresh strawberries or a homemade strawberry compote
  • Cinnamon sugar. Just mix one teaspoon with ½ cup of sugar. Then sprinkle it over the pancakes.
  • Go ahead and slightly melt Nutella and spread it on the pancake.
