Alton's 'Instant' Pancake Mix 01:28

A batch of Alton's 'instant' pancake mix means three months of happy faces.

While host Alton Brown didn't offer the chefs any pancake shortcuts during yesterday's Cutthroat Kitchen: Superstar Sabotage, he's giving one to fans in the form of his "Instant" Pancake Mix (pictured above), a go-to recipe that lets you do most of the hands-on work in advance and keeps work simple when you're ready to cook.

Better than the boxed stuff you buy from the supermarket, Alton's DIY mix comes together with only a few pantry staples, like flour, baking soda and salt, and, perhaps best of all, it keeps for up to three months and yields as many as three batches of pancakes. Keep it on hand for when you want a stress-free morning meal, and when you're ready to enjoy, stir in eggs, buttermilk and butter to create the ultimate quick-fix breakfast.
