Making Pancakes is as American as Pizza and Burgers, right? I as I am sure many of you do, buy the bag of mix and just add water. I got thinking about my storage and what ingredients I have to make pancakes. The packaged mixes, don’t store very well. And even if they did they are more expensive. Since we may have to live off our food storage without the convenience of running to the grocery store, I found an old fashion pancake recipe. I hope you enjoy trying this recipe
• 2 ½ cups all purpose flour
• 1 tbsp & 2 ¼ tsp baking powder
• 1 ½ tsp salt
• 1 tbsp & 1 ½ tsp white sugar
• 1 ¾ cups & 2 tbsp milk
• 2 eggs
• ¼ cup & 1 tsp butter (melted)
In a large bowl sift together flour, baking soda, salt and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour the wet ingredients in, beat until smooth.
Heat oiled griddle or pan over medium heat.
Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle. ¼ cup for each pancake.
Cook until bubbles appear and then turn over and cook the other side.
Serve hot with syrup, jam, honey or your own preserves.
You can substitute powdered eggs, powdered milk and canned or powdered butter. You can even make your own baking powder, (1 tsp baking soda + 2 tsp cornstarch). These items should be in your storage.
