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.



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)


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.
