Since moving to Cheyenne we make a LOT more warm breakfasts. Something about sending my son off to school for the day with something warm in his tummy makes me feel better when it's near negative digits. Of course, this summer will be ALL about the cereal ... but during the cold months it's been all about any kind of warmth we can get! As a result I've tried a dozen or so different pancake/waffle ideas ... and I've come to the conclusion that we need to have more pre-made pancake mix in our food storage. It takes a lot more work to make something, than to just add water.
Today's pancake mix can be found here. And it was pretty good, but seriously ... bisquick from now on baby! And as fast as we can go thru it, why worry? Especially when it has a year and a half expiration date???
2 c. oats
3 c. buttermilk (remember how to make buttermilk? 2 tbsp. vinegar to each cup of pre-made powdered milk)
3 eggs, well beaten
1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. oil
butter or extra oil for the griddle
Puts the oats in a large bowl & add the buttermilk. Let them soak overnight. The next morning, add the eggs, flour, baking powder, salt and oil. Heat the flat iron surface-griddle, oil the pan and pour the mixture out to desired size. Brown on both sides and serve.
