Schoolhouse Pancakes

Cooking breakfast for my family is one of those things that make me feel like I'm really on top of my job. Pancakes and waffles are a staple--everyone likes them, they're quick (pancakes especially), and the cleanup is minimal.

This recipe can be made as is (dairy-free, as things are around here), or just substitute regular milk for the rice milk; real milk makes a nicer-textured pancake. Some day Giles will be in college and we'll eat dairy at every meal!

Schoolhouse Pancakes

1 c. whole wheat flour
1 c. unbleached white flour
2 T. sugar
1 t. salt
2 T. baking powder
4 T. oil
2 eggs
1 1/2 c. rice, soy, or regular milk

Stir together dry ingredients. Mix in the rest. If batter seems thick, add more milk, or just add water. I like this on the thin side to make thinner pancakes. Cook on non-stick griddle.

P.S. Every large family should possess an electric non-stick griddle. This will cook your family's pancakes in no time flat, and hardly even needs to be washed.

P.P.S Children love to have chocolate chips sprinkled on their pancakes before they are turned. Chocolate chip pancakes are very similar to giant chocolate chip cookies, only much better for you!
