Pancake Mix

For Mix:
2 C dry buttermilk powder
8 C flour
2/3 C sugar
8 tsp. baking powder
4 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. salt

To Make Pancakes:
1 egg
2 T vegetable oil
1 1/2 C pancake mix (see above)
1 C water (more as needed)

To Make Mix:
Sift all ingredients together. Store in an air tight container and use within 6 months of making.

To Make Pancakes with Mix:
Mix all ingredients until blended together and let the mixture stand for about five minutes.
Lightly oil a large griddle or skillet (preferably non-stick). Heat skillet over medium heat. You can tell if your skillet or griddle is hot enough by flicking a drop or two of water on its surface. The water should skitter around and quickly evaporate if the pan is hot enough.
Spoon batter into hot oiled skillet, allowing about 3 tablespoons per pancake. Cook pancakes for about 1 1/2 - 2 minutes. You will know your pancakes are ready to be turned over when large bubbles form on the uncooked surface (see photo). Flip pancakes and cook for about 1 1/2 minutes on the other side. Serve immediately or keep warm on a baking sheet in a 200°F oven until all pancakes are cooked.

Apple Pancakes

2 large apples
pancake mix

Mix up your batch of pancake mix according to the directions (I make mine on the thin side) and prepare as usual. Slice and peel an apple and place a few thin slices on the griddle. Pour 1/4 cup batter over slice. Cook on the first side until it starts to bubble on top, then flip and brown the other side. Serve with syrup. Note: You can also sprinkle cinnamon sugar over the apples if you wish.

When you have your outside carpet down and your lawn chairs can’t keep your carpet from blowing, try putting a nail though a large mouth sealer lid and hammering into the ground at the corners and one in the middle of the carpet. Just remember to remove the nails or the next person could get a flat.
