Pancakes & Mr. Rogers

Often on Monday mornings we have pancakes while watching an old episode of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood on YouTube.  This recipe is adapted from Betty Crocker’s classic pancake recipe.

Pancakes

Ingredients:

3/4 Cup whole wheat flour

3/4 Cup all purpose flour

1 1/2 Tablespoons sugar

3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2-3/4 teaspoon salt

2 eggs

3 Tablespoons butter, melted and cooled slightly

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup milk or 1/2 & 1/2 (use as much as needed to make the batter as thin or thick as you like)

Directions:

Whisk together flours, baking powder and salt.  Make a whole in the middle and add the eggs, butter, and vanilla.  Whisk, then add the milk to desired consistency and whisk again.

I use an electric griddle for pancakes (I found it at a yard sale for $5!), which makes the whole process a lot faster.  I make medium sized pancakes using a small ladle or large spoon and add chocolate chips to most of them (by request).  Cooking a couple of minutes on each side is all it takes.
