My youth pastor hubby is heading up another Annual Youth Pancake Feed for this Sunday.

And this year I’m making all the pancake mix…enough mix for 300 people.

That’s a whole lot of mix.

This is what my kitchen looks like:

This is part of the mix bagged up:

And this is what we’ll be selling on Sunday:

That’s right.  Come eat some pancakes and then you can buy a bag of the pancake mix 😀

All proceeds go to the youth for their summer trips!

How’s that for advertisement?!

Buttermilk Pancake Mix

On our date last night, Mike and I talked “shop”, you know, church stuff.  And I love, love, love it when I get to use my “skills” at church.  So, even though I was totally enjoying the time away from the kiddos (we can’t thank you enough, Becky),  I was pretty excited to come home and dig around for a new recipe, a pancake recipe mix. I found it here, but I’ll go ahead and list it again for you.  Here ya go:

Buttermilk Pancake Mix

  • 4 c flour
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1/2 c dry buttermilk powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

Mix this together and store in air-tight container.

To prepare pancakes:

  • 2/3 c water
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp oil
  • 1 c pancake mix

Mix water, egg and oil together.  Add pancake mix.  Add more water if you want a thinner consistency.  Pour 1/4 c of batter on hot griddle.  Flip pancake over when top is filled with bubbles.  Cook for another minute.  Serve with favorite toppings.

You’ll be seeing this recipe in action if you come to Crossroads’ Youth Pancake Feed in March!  I tried it out on my family this morning and they loved them!  These really are delicious and I will now be using this mix as my main go-to pancake mix!

Here they are, fluffy and naked (oops…I just said naked about food…oh, well.  They really aren’t dressed, ya know!)

But here they’ve shown up for my breakfast party dressed in butter and blueberry jelly.  You heard me right.  I can be a little weird about my pancakes.  I don’t even like regular syrup.  Call me a freak 😀

P.S. I got a call from my daddy last night.  He told me he read my blog for the first time yesterday and it brought tears to his eyes.  So, of course, this brought tears to my eyes.  I really didn’t expect this kind of response, from him or even from you, my readers.  I knew a few of my friends (Kris, for sure…lol but she’s my sister from another mother!) and my family would read this stuff. Guys, I don’t know what to say.  I just have a deep love for family and for baking and in my family, these two are very tightly intertwined.  It’s one of the ways we show our love for each other.  So, I guess in a way, I’m trying to show you that I do care for people, for you but I have a hard time putting that into words…I’m just too shy.  So, Crossroads Family (and other’s of you)  if I don’t come up and talk to you, it’s not because I don’t care.  I’d just rather bake you some cookies 😀

Saturday Brunch

I had a busy morning with worship practice today, so by the time I got home and got our meal ready, it was actually noon :0) We went ahead with breakfast food, though…b/c I LOVE breakfast food!! (technically, there’s not much food that I don’t love, but that’s beside the point). We had pancakes and cheesy scrambled eggs.

Fanny Farmer Pancakes
2 c flour
1/4 c sugar
1 tsp salt
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 egg
2 c milk
2 Tbsp butter, melted

Combine dry ingredients. Add egg and milk and stir well. Add butter. Fry 1/4 c of batter (or desired amount) on hot griddle. Serve with favorite toppings. (Mine happens to be the Cinnamon Syrup I listed last week…yummo!)

The story behind these pancakes being named “Fanny Farmer” is that a couple of years ago, Reagan brought home a book from the Hutch Library and had this recipe in it. I’ve loved it ever since. It’s basic, easy, but yummy.
