Make Ahead Pancake or Waffle Batter for a Crowd
barbaraok says:

Seems the nutrients are more inline with other recipes I've look at with 3 or 4 pancakes as a serving size. I made this but a 2x4 waffle would have been all holes (we have Belgian Waffler Maker). Serving size seems strange compared to everything else I've seen. Also, I did not add any salt and everything worked fine. Dietitian comment: I think attention to the amount of batter may be a better way to determine the waffle portion. The recipe suggests 1/4 cup for each pancake and 1/2 cup batter to make 1 waffle.

I would make this with soymilk..Half the salt...and maybe two eggs. Replacing the other two with egg whites. I am cooking for a man who like to eat his protein in other ways beside a pancake..and look at what you get 4 pancake. Not sure it's worth the trouble..I may try it my way tho...Alot of your recipes have things in them that people who having kidney issues are suppose to avoid...I am new at this so maybe I am wrong..

Very very good! They were supposed to be for my Dad...who is on a renal diet and needs them. But when my nephews and brother tried them, they asked me to make these instead of my usual recipe! Winner winner!

I have a round Belgian waffle maker. I want to have a pre-made mix. Can anyone give me a recipe so all I have to add is the wet ingredients. What would the serving be for a round waffle?

Can I substitute powdered creamer for a dry mix? I can't find a potassium amount on any of the websites. Thank you.. Dietitian comment: Yes--look for one without phosphate additives and dilute with an equal amount of water.

can I substitute eggbeaters in this recipe? Dietitian comment: Yes that's still a kidney-friendly substitution plus lower fat and cholesterol.

I am looking for nutritious recipes for my 19yr old on PD. This recipe startles me at the amount of fat for one pancake. Generally, 2 pancakes would be a typical serving and that would be 20 grams of fat. I find it hard to even want to make something like that that would in one way work for the kidneys but in another, hurt her heart. Does it really need that much butter/margarine? Dietitian comment: You could reduce the margarine or replace the liquid nondairy creamer with rice milk or another acceptable lower fat milk substitute to make a lower fat pancake or waffle mix.

Made these the night before....fantastic. Easy to make and they taste great. Used Splenda instead of sugar. Will try day 2 tomorrow. Love being able to make ahead of time, we can have pancakes even on a busy morning.

These pancakes are absolutely wonderful. My father is on dialysis, and my husband and I treat my parents to these pancakes every year for Christmas morning breakfast. You definitely have to cut the recipe down when you don't have a crowd! Well done!
