Happy Day Pancakes

Your day will be happy if you start with these pancakes.

My Aunt Casey sent me this recipe (originally from “Simply Simpatico” published by the Junior League of Albuquerque) because I wanted to make some gifts for friends over the holidays. I mixed up the dry ingredients, put them in a pretty glass jar and attached the recipe for how to complete them. Everyone who received them, said they were so yummy. If you’ve made Bisquick pancakes in the past, this is really just as easy (OK, maybe not just as easy, but almost!), tastes better and is better for you. I whipped up a batch for some hungry teenagers over the weekend. You should do the same this weekend (teenagers optional).

Happy Day Pancakes
(makes 14 – 16 pancakes)
2/3 cup all purpose flour
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup yellow corn meal
2 tbs sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cups buttermilk
2 eggs
2 tbs vegetable oil

Mix all dry ingredients together with a whisk and set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs and vegetable oil. Add the wet mixture to the dry and stir just until moistened. Don’t over mix or you’ll have tough pancakes. Heat a lightly oiled or buttered griddle or skillet over low heat. Drop batter onto the griddle, using about 1/4 cup for each pancake. When several bubbles burst on top of the pancake, flip and cook the second side until steam stops rising from them. Serve with butter and warm maple syrup.
