Pancake Help

So, the other day at the grocery store a box of pancake mix caught my eye. Well, I'm assuming it was pancake mix because it had a picture of pancakes on the front. I really want to make pancakes. I don't read Korean and I can't for the life of me, remember what you add to pancake mix. Eggs? Water?

Could ya'll do me a huge favor and tell me what to add to the mix and how much? That way, when we go grocery shopping on Thursday I can price everything to see if making pancakes is going to cost me $20. If not, it might be worth a go.

Also, any scrambled egg spruce up ideas, or homemade spaghetti sauce with SUPER EASY TO FIND (no spices just veggies?) ingredients would be very nice as well. I've found spaghetti noodles, but haven't spotted the sauce yet.

I really want to cook, but due to my lack of skills, I'm not very good at  being creative with food. We only have a stovetop and a toaster. So far the groceries we've been buying are: eggs, bread, sliced ham, sliced cheese, mustard, cereal, yogurt, bananas and canned fruit. Oh and Ramen. Who could forget Ramen. (I do have a ramen meets mac and cheese cup that I'm hoping to try tomorrow)

  1. Hiya, I just found you from 20sb. Generally, you ad 2 eggs and 200ml milk and about 75ml of water, and a wee bit of butter per 150g of mix. I'd add the milk a bit at a time depending on how thick you want the batter to be!

    Good luck!

  2. Oh, and, cheese and chives in scrambled eggs, and for pasta sauce, finely chop whatever veg you want to put in, saute them, add 1-2 tins of tinned chopped tomatoes and a couple of cups of stock, and simmer till it reduces.

  3. Do they sell Bisquick there? That's what I always use to make pancakes.

    And with the Ramen, you could make your own version of chow mein noodles. Just cook the noodles, without the seasoning, then stir-fry them with cabbage, onions, celery, bean sprouts, soy sauce, ginger and pepper. Careful with the soy sauce though, its easy to add too much.

  4. @ Lisa-marie- thanks for stopping by and thanks for the tips!

    @ Jennifer- no biaquick so far, and what a great idea to spice up the ramen- especially since I haven't been a fan of the seasonings they have here
