Goodbye Aunt Jemima
It's Saturday morning.
The first thing my husband says when he wakes up this a.m. is:
"Do we have any pancake mix?".
He has always liked pancakes in the winter on a weekend. I have never liked them because I find them too heavy and they lay in your stomach like lead all day.
I know, what kind of person am I that I don't eat pancakes? ( I do like French toast!).
Well, if I DO have pancake mix, then it's 2 years old. I went downstairs and checked to see if Aunt Jemima was in the cupboard. She was not.
You could hear the disappointed sighs.
How hard could it be to make homemade pancake mix? and why have I always bought a box of mix? I never thought about it.
I had a Swedish apple pancake recipe that I do in a cast iron skillet, so I modified it for breakfast pancakes and they came out FABULOUS!!!!
I feel so silly, this was so easy. I had a few bites and really liked them, they didn't have that chemical aftertaste that boxed mixes can have.
Sorry Aunt Jemima, I will not be buying you anymore. Goodbye.
Stacey Snacks Pancake Mix:
(makes about 12 pancakes, depending on size)

1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp sugar
mix dry ingredients together and add:
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup whole milk

Pour into discs onto a hot skillet. Turn when bubbling.
Of course you can add blueberries, chocolate chips or whatever you like!
The sighs turned into smiles very quickly!
