Cooking 101 - Pancakes

Here's the most delicious, basic pancake recipe:

1 c. unbleached flour
1 c. whole wheat flour
2 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
3/4 t. salt
3 T. sugar
1 c. quick oats (or less)
1/2 c. wheat germ

whisk to combine

Separately, mix together:
3 1/2 c. milk
1 c. sour cream
4 t. melted butter
2 large eggs, beaten

Combine all ingredients together, without overmixing.

Note: I have a wonderful cast-iron griddle that I have been using for a couple of years, so it's well seasoned and gives my pancakes such great flavor. I highly recommend getting one of these griddles for your home.

EXCELLENT Pancake Toppings:
Strawberries blended with a touch of lemon and sugar
Roasted, chopped pecans
Blueberry or apple pie filling

...or just plain old butter and maple syrup!
