Servings 4 servings
Basic Mix Ingredients:
- 4 cups whole wheat pastry flour see notes
- Add ½ cup of any or all of the following: Powdered milk, corn meal, wheat germ, bran
- Add ¼ cup of any or all of the following: Potato flour, oat flour, coconut flour, buckwheat flour, sesame seeds
Ingredients for the Pancakes:
- 1 ½ cups Basic Mix
- 1 cup milk see notes
- 1 tablespoon butter melted
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon Salt
In a large bowl, whisk together basic mix ingredients. Store in an airtight container in the freezer or refrigerator.
To make pancakes, coat a skillet with nonstick spray, oil, or butter. Preheat skillet over medium-high heat. In a medium bowl combine basic mix, milk, melted butter, egg, baking powder, and salt. Whisk until smooth.
Pour approximately ¼ cup at a time on to skillet. When the batter begins to bubble and the skillet-side of the pancake is lightly browned, flip. Continue cooking until the second side is lightly browned, then remove to a plate. Repeat with remaining batter.
3 cups whole wheat flour + 1 cup all-purpose flour may be substituted for the whole wheat pasty flour. This is the traditional recipe.
If the batter seems very thick, just add more milk.
The batter may also be used for making waffles. Just preheat a waffle iron and proceed according to the manufacturer's instructions.
