I’ve made it my own by mixing up the flour and varying the stuff that goes inside.

  • 2 ½ cup flours, mixed by your preference.  I recommend 1 cup whole wheat, ½ cup corn meal, ½ cup flax meal, ½ cup buckwheat

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 ⅓ cup milk

  • 1 tbsp sugar

  • Lots of fresh berries (any are delicious) and mashed banana, to taste and as the season dictates

 

Directions:

    • Preheat your skillet if cast iron, as this material takes time to heat up.  Key is a preheated item but on medium low.

    • Sift together the flours, baking powder and salt.

    • Separately, whisk the egg, milk, sugar and banana.

    • Combine, but minimize mixing to keep them light and fluffy.

    • Fold in berries, or mush them up if your kids prefer

    • Use an ice cream scoop to pour batter on a hot, oiled griddle or pan.  Optionally, pour into a metal cookie cutter for a fun shape.

    • Turn when they bubble.
