beyond Bisquick

Two pancake recipes, both tasty.

whole wheat pancakes

  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (or whatever)
  • 1 tblspoon baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbl brown sugar or honey
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup oil or melted butter
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3 egg whites
Mix dry ingredients together and beat wet ingredients together, except the whites, which you should beat heavily, until peaks form. Then mix dry + wet thoroughly and finally fold the whites in. It's not really vital that you separate the egg whites, but it will make the pancakes fluffier if you do it right.

Of course you can (and should) also mix fruit into the batter. Blueberries/strawberries are obvious, but bananas will take things to the next level.

option two: who says you need to have the OJ on the side?

I actually haven't tried these, so let me know if you make them.
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4c oil
  • 2c flour
  • 1/2tsp baking soda
  • 1/2tsp salt
  • 2c orange juice
Mix wet & dry ingredients separately, then combine.
