To save from all the hassle of cleaning bowls and utensils, I prepare pancake mix in a quart-size zip-top bag, adding the water and other ingredients. Then I just zip it closed and squish and squeeze it until it’s fully mixed. I cut off one of the bottom corners of the bag and squeeze the batter right onto the hot, nonstick skillet. When all done, just throw the bag away. Save on clean-up.
This is especially good for camping or any other time dishwashing isn’t an option. Bob
