Elevated baking mixes cost more than your regular box of generic pancake mix and you’re likely wondering if these $10 versions are worth it.

Don’t get me wrong, I can certainly get behind indulging in a box of $2 brownies but when you’re looking for something a bit better, these are the baking mixes to turn to.
