Jay wanted pancakes for breakfast this morning, and as it wasn't a school day we had some time. Theoretically yes I should have been getting to work, but I had no early meetings, so why not? I had come across some recipes for pancake mixes and thought that would be a good use of my time, so next time Jay wants pancakes on a Thursday morning I might actually make it to work before 10:30! I liked this recipe because it sounded somewhat healthy, but also like Jay might still eat it. And luckily he loved these pancakes. I just didn't tell him about the wheat bran and soy flour.
If you have this mix on hand you can make a batch of pancakes really quickly. The directions for using the mix are below.
Mollie's Basic Buttermilk PancakesMakes enough for 3 batches of pancakes2 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
3/4 cup soy protein powder [I used soy flour as that's what I had]
3/4 cup unprocessed wheat bran
3/4 tsp salt (rounded measure)
4 1/2 tsp baking powder (1 tbsp plus 1 1/2 tsp)
1/2 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp sugar (optional)
Stir everything around in a big bowl and then store in a quart glass jar in the fridge.
