Pancake Mix

Today's edition of "What to Cook" has a very simple, easy recipe -- and it's pretty healthy and recognizable. Homemade Pancake Mix! Store-bought pancake mix (just like most store-bought things bought outside of the produce or meat departments) has a ton of ingredients most people have never heard of! This might not be "bad" all the time, but it's definitely not the best for your body. This recipe is great because it has such simple ingredients, all of which you'll not only be able to pronounce, but will most likely already be inside your cupboards and fridge.

Um, WOW! Compare to the ingredients in the recipe below.

Delicious Homemade Pancakes

Recipe makes about eight 3” diameter pancakes

 You will need:
* 1 c. Flour
* 1 tbsp. baking powder
* 1/2 tsp. baking soda
* 2 tbsp. vegetable oil    
* 3 tbsp. Sugar        
* 1 c. Milk    
* 1 egg    
* 1/2 tsp. salt

Combine dry ingredients. Add milk, egg and oil. Mix until smooth. Heat nonstick pan over low-medium heat until water beads. Do not oil. Alternatively, use a lightly oiled griddle.

Pour pancake mixture in 1/4 cup amounts. Turn when tops are covered with bubbles and edges look cooked. Remove from heat when pancake stops steaming.

Top with powdered sugar, syrup, or strawberries and whip cream (or Greek yogurt for a healthier twist!)

When I was a girl, I spent a summer with my mother's Aunt Virginia Truax in Maryland. She "whipped up" homemade pancakes from scratch almost every morning. They were heavenly ! Light and flavorful. I bet yours could rival hers.
