2kg Pancake Mix - $21.99 - Support A Canadian Small Business

Deal Link:
Price:
21.99
Retailer:
Connaisseur Foods
Store Link

Mississauga company that actually provides pancakes to a ton of huge top-tier hotels (Waldorf, Four Seasons, etc.)
They're selling to the public for the first time. Found out through a family relative, and ecstatic to share.
Genuinely the best pancakes I've ever had.
$0 pickup option available (located by the Costco on Laird), or ground shipping within Canada.

"I've used the Connaisseur brand for many years. The quality and consistency of their mixes is top notch. Easy to make, add water only and the taste is in a class of its own. A favourite with guests who are surprised the pancakes and waffles are not made from scratch."

- Thomas Bellec, Executive Chef, Four Seasons Resort, Hualalai

I'm all for supporting local/Canadian, but boxed pancake mix? It's a pretty basic DIY product, no?

Wheat flour • Buttermilk powder • Sugar • Palm oil powder (contains milk) • Dried egg yolk • Whey powder • Natural flavour • Sodium bicarbonate • Modified corn starch • Sodium acid pyrophosphate • Modified potato starch • Salt • Sodium stearoyl lactylate • Guar gum • Lactic acid • Dried whole egg.

No, as I only have a quarter of the required ingredients.

Why would you add all that shit in the ingredients list.

All you need is:

Flour
Egg
Sugar
Salt
Baking Powder
Milk
Veg oil / butter
Vanilla Extract (if you're not a big fan of the the faint smell of egg)

You can play around with the amount of each item to find your perfect recipe.

Supplier of top tier hotel chains? Neither sounds like local small business to me.

  • Guar gum
  • Lactic acid
  • Dried whole egg

A typical pancake mix will need Flour, Sugar, Salt, Eggs, Milk (use vinegar or lemon juice to turn regular milk into buttermilk), butter, baking soda, and or baking powder. These are typically pantry staples for both cooking and or baking. The use of many of these ingredients to create something shelf stable in a commercial environment.

Dried egg yolk is potentially harmful as it likely contains oxidized cholesterol

As a real pancake connoisseur, I'd highly recommend culturing your own buttermilk. It's the easiest thing ever--just add about 1/4 cup of store bought buttermilk to 1l of milk in a jar and let it sit undisturbed on your counter for ~8-12hr. Once it has thickened up, put it in your fridge. Do this every week or so (using your own buttermilk as starter instead of store bought) and you have fresh buttermilk for life. Fresh buttermilk and proper technique will elevate your pancakes to divine.

Most important technique tips:
  • Don't overmix when adding wet ingredients to dry ingredients-- it should be lumpy and have some dry bits
  • Let the mix sit for a while before cooking (like 15-30 min)--give the dry bits time to hydrate
  • When in doubt, moar butter

    EDIT:
    Also, if you're making them for your family and you want everyone to eat together, you can put them in your oven (lowest temperature setting) on a wire rack to keep warm until they're all done
