Four Flour Flapjacks

Short  on eggs and all-purpose flour I made some adjustments to our usual pancakes and was delightfully surprised. Because I often make bread, we normally have all the items listed below in our pantry.

If you add the items in the order listed, you can do this with a minimum of utensils speeding clean up.

Yield: 10 Flapjacks each ~4″ across

  1. I used an egg beater to thoroughly mix:
    Bowl and egg beater
    Bowl and egg beater (R. Shaw photo)
    • 1 Tbsp. Baking Powder
    • 1/4 cup corn meal
    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/4 cup rye flour
    • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  2. In a 2 cup measure with the same egg beater beat until frothy:
    • 1 cup milk
    • 1 Tbsp. dry milk powder
    • 1 Tbsp. oil
    • 1 Tbsp. honey
    • 1 egg
  3. Add the liquids to the dry mixture and blend with the same egg beater until smooth.
  4. Preheat your griddle so a few drops of water will instantly sizzle and dance, but not so hot that it smokes. Allowing the batter to rest gives the baking power time to start forming bubbles.
  5. Spray oil on a hot griddle and pour batter forming 4-inch circles.
  6. Flip when the edges of the circles look dry and bubbles break.
  7. The second side takes about half as long to cook. Remove from griddle and enjoy.
