Good Grains Pancake Mix

Our standard pancakes, WAY better than packaged mixes or even white flour pancakes from scratch. This is a double recipe, which will make 6 batches. I package individual batches in ziplocks to freeze, writing the ingredients to add to the mix right on the bag (recipe follows – it’s just  milk, eggs, oil and lemon juice). We always bring some on camping trips!

The mix

2 c rye flour
1 c wheat germ
2 c whole wheat flour
3 c unbleached white flour
1 c cornmeal
2/3 c sugar
4 T baking powder
2 t baking soda
2 t salt

Combine all ingredients and blending together thoroughly.  Divide between 6 ziplock bags or other containers, and freeze the ones you’re not using right away.  Each batch is just under 2 cups.

To make pancakes

1 ¼ c milk or soymilk
2 eggs
2 T canola oil
1 batch pancake mix (just under 2 cups)

Whisk together milk, eggs and oil until blended, then whisk in the pancake mix until just moist. It’s OK if the batter is a little lumpy. Cook in a cast iron skillet over medium-low heat. Butter the pan before each pancake.
