Today for lunch we made pancakes.Â Here is Momma’s home made recipe for pancake mix.Â It is from the More with Less Cookbook Oma gave her when she married Daddy.Â She says it is her favorite cookbook.
6 cups white flour
3 cups whole wheat flour (or buckwheat, cornmeal or rye flour)
3 cups quick oats
2 cups wheat germ
3/4 cup baking powder
3/4 cup sugar (you can use a little less if you want)
4 cups powdered milk
Mix all these ingredients well and store in an airtight container.Â When you want to make pancakes, combine 1 1/2 cups pancake mix with one beaten egg, 1 cup water and 2 tablespoons oil.Â It makes enough for 3 or 4 people.Â We double the recipe and sometimes need more!
Remember when we made maple syrup?Â Â When we opened it, we discovered it was not quite boiled down enough.Â So we reboiled it the other day.Â We went down from 4 pints to 2 and Daddy said it could have been boiled more.Â Momma stopped so it would not go down to sugar.Â The syrup tasted good!
I want to boil syrup again next year.Â We already have the tubing.Â Hint for boiling it inside–Use a dehumidifier!
