Basic pancakes

1 egg, beaten

1 cup flour

1 Tbsp. baking powder

1 Tbsp. sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

3/4 c. milk

2 Tbsp. melted margarine or vegetable oil

Mix all ingredients together just until mixed.  Using 1/4 c. batter for each pancake, cook pancakes over medium heat on hot greased griddle.  Flip when outside edges look dry and bubbles form and burst in center.  Makes approx 9 pancakes.

You can add fresh or frozen (thawed) blueberries, sliced strawberries, grated or finely diced apple or other fruit to the batter before cooking.

  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp. baking soda

  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Sift dry ingredients in a medium size bowl.  Combine banana, milk, egg and vanilla in a large bowl.  Add dry ingredients to the banana mixture and stir just until combined.  Pour onto greased griddle using 1/4 c. measure.  Flip when the pancakes bubble and are browned on the bottom.  Makes approx. 15 pancakes.

Oatmeal Pancakes

2 c. warm milk

1 1/2 c. oatmeal (quick cooking or old fashioned, not instant)

1/2 c. all purpose flour

1/2 c. whole wheat flour

1/4 c. wheat germ

2 Tbsp. brown sugar

1 Tbsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

2 eggs, beaten

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1/4 c. vegetable oil

In bowl, pour milk over oatmeal, let stand for 5 minutes.  In another bowl, stir together flours, wheat germ, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  Beat eggs, vanilla and vegetable oil together, add to dry ingredients along with milk/oats mixture, stirring just until mixed.  If batter is too thick add more milk.  Pour batter onto hot greased griddle using 1/4 c. measure and cook until bubbles break and/or bottoms are golden brown.  Flip and cook another 45 to 60 seconds longer.

    Want pancake syrup without the HFCS?  Can't afford real maple syrup?  This one tastes JUST LIKE pancake syrup from the store!


    BROWN SUGAR SYRUP:

    2 c. brown sugar

    1 c. water

    1/2 tsp. maple extract flavoring

    Bring all ingredients to a boil, boil 1 minutes.  Let cool a bit.  Can serve warm or cold.  I store mine in the fridge.
