Pancakes aren’t difficult to make. They are a pretty easy mix of flour, eggs, oil or butter, sugar and some type of milk. This being said, sometimes using a mix isn’t the worst thing in the world. I’ve only got a couple of hours until I have to be at work and I when I woke up this morning, I wanted pancakes. Instantly.
I really like this pancake mix because it’s got good ingredients. The first ingredient is whole wheat flour and the second is oat bran, giving these more staying power that a traditional white flour pancake. That’s the thing with pancakes; I can mow down like six of them, and then be hungry 20 minutes later. I find that these last a little longer.
I sort of followed the directions on the package. I omitted the sugar and the oil, since I’m going to douse mine with maple syrup and I sprayed the pan with oil. I also used buttermilk in place of soy milk. I had leftover buttermilk from making scones on Monday. It also helps to add closer to a cup of milk to get the correct batter consistency.
Happy Saturday, all! Off to work and then I have two days off. I have to start planning the meal I’m going to make my family in Wisconsin. I want to show off some of my skills I learned!
