I have a massive amount of whole wheat pastry flour on hand, so I thought it would be a good idea to make up some whole wheat pancake mix and keep it in the downstairs refrigerator. I used to do this all the time, but when life gets crazy, homemade mixes are the first thing to go.
You can use regular whole wheat flour, or even white flour in this recipe if you like.
Whole Wheat Pancake Mix
8 c. whole wheat flour (I used pastry flour from Azure Standard)
3/4 c. sugar (I used sucanat from Azure Standard)
2 2/3 c. dry milk powder
7 Tbsp baking powder (I use aluminum-free)
4 tsp salt (I use sea salt)
Mix well and store in refrigerator or freezer. (I store mine is a big plastic container I got years ago at WalMart.)
To make pancakes:
Be sure and label the container!
3 c. mix + 2 eggs & 2 c. water
We make our pancakes on a large griddle. I try to get 2 pancakes per person made before calling anyone to breakfast, but I’m lucky if this actually happens!
(sorry I don’t have any photos – I’ll try to add them next time we make these!)
Tomorrow, I’ll tell you how I used this recipe and others to put together an easy menu for my mother-in-law to make while we were away this past weekend.
