Esther's Pancakes

Ok, this recipe doesn’t require a Dutch Oven. I use a skillet. You can use a Dutch Oven instead of a skillet if you need to. In this pancake recipe everything except the water and eggs can be mixed ahead of time and carried in a watertight plastic bag or container.

1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour 1 cup soy flour (or unbleached white flour if you prefer)
1 cup old fashioned oats 1/2 cup finely ground cornmeal
1 tbsp. baking powder 2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt 1/2 cup brown sugar
16 tbsp. dry buttermilk powder 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1 tbsp. cinnamon (optional) 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg (optional)
4 eggs 2-4 cups water

Mix all ingredients together and store in a plastic bag. When ready to cook, add:

4 eggs and 2-4 cups water (add water slowly until the right consistency – the mixture will thicken some as it sits).

For a smoother texture, you can process the oats in a blender or food processor before adding to mixture. Cook and enjoy! Feeds 6-8 people.
