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.
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
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)
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.
