Pancakes are one of those family favourite breakfasts that we’ll even make for lunch or dinner when the mood strikes. For truck drivers, pancakes can be a quick, hot meal when you just don’t have the time to stop for a meal. Pancake mix is also a great, non perishable food item that you can store in the truck for emergency purposes or to use when you’ve run out of those delicious home cooked meals.
