Sick boy gets his favorite - PANCAKES - And a Recipe for you

Well, my little boy (NEWLY HAIRCUTTED boy) is felling ICKY. So, am making his favorite, pancakes!

I have been inspired by the gals over at Iowa Corn Dog Blog, so here's our recipe!

2 cups Flour (I use Pauls Grains Whole Wheat)
2tbsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
4 Tbsp Vegetable Oil (I use whatever variety I can find locally)
6 Tbsp Sugar (haven't found any Iowa Sugar, so sometimes I use honey instead)
2 C Milk (Picket Fence)
2 Eggs (from the back yard, YUM)
1/2 tsp salt (I usually forget to add it, and they still taste great)

I keep all the dry ingredients in a jar, so when I'm ready to make my Pancakes, I just throw 2+ cups in a bowl, and add the wet ingredients.

This tastes great with the whole wheat flour, and even better when I use Local Honey.

To top our Pancakes we use REAL Maple Syrup (anyone know of Iowa Maple Syrup?) or Honey.


I'll post the pics of Squeak and the Girls' haircuts later.



  1. Sounds like a great recipe. I've been looking something that I can mix up ahead, thanks for sharing!

  2. Sounds so yummy, and what a great idea, to keep it handy!!

  3. mmm, I make a similar pancake recipe
    it's SOOO good :) i love it with the w/w flour
    sometimes i substitute my over-ripe bananas for the liquid and throw in walnuts for banana nut pancakes

    we also mix over-ripe banana, crushed pineapple and whatever fruit (berriers are good) in the blender then heat it on the stove with a tad of brown sugar for a fruit compote topping
    course, the pineapples and bananas are not from iowa :)

    my 4yr old is really into pancakes...i will try your version next time

  4. My mom used to make some whole wheat pancakes that were soooooo good. You are such a good mom to make him some pan cakes. I hope he is feeling better today!

  5. awe poor lil dude! hope he's better today & if not atleast he has his sisters @ his beck & call now :)

    I can set u up w/some southern Iowa Alfalfa honey if you want :)

  6. I just found out about Pauls Grains!! So excited to start buying from them! Still havn't found a source for local syrup :( I know Jill at Blue Gate said she would have Raw Honey in June!! Great Recipe!

  7. Iowa maple syrup comes from cedar rapids area -- indian creek nature center. Iowa's really on the western edge of maple syrup country. we've tapped a tree in wdm with luck if you wanted to try it at your place.
