    Perfect Pancake Mix

    6 C. Unbleached flour
    2 C. Whole wheat pastry flour
    2 C. Nonfat dry milk powder (or buttermilk powder)
    1/2 C. sugar
    3 Tbsp. baking powder
    1 1/2 Tbsp. baking soda
    2 tsp. salt

    In a large bowl, whisk all ingredients together. Store in large airtight container.

    -You can use all unbleached flour or combination of flours to get to 8 C. (I found it is best not to go over about 1/2 whole wheat flour with this recipe).

    Pancakes:
    2 C. perfect pancake mix
    1 1/2 C. water (or to desired consistency)
    1 egg
    2 Tbsp. oil

    In a medium bowl, combine egg, oil and water. Whisk in pancake mix. Let stand 2 minutes. Add additional water, if desired. Cook on preheated griddle or pan.

    ~We love pancakes for lazy weekend morning breakfasts, or busy weeknight dinners!

    Easy Waffles
    2 1/2 C. Perfect Pancake Mix
    2 C. water
    3 eggs, separated
    1/4 C. veg. oil

    Combine pancake mix, water, egg yolks and oil in large bowl. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. Gently fold egg whites into batter. Bake in preheated waffle iron.

    Puff Oven Pancake

    4 Tbsp. butter or margarine
    4 eggs
    1 C. milk
    1 C. Perfect Pancake Mix

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place 2 Tbsp. butter in each of 2-9" pie plates.
    Place pie plates in oven to melt butter.
    In a blender, combine eggs, pancake mix and milk.
    Pour batter into prepared pie plates.
    Bake for 18 minutes until puffy and browned.
    DO NOT open the oven while pancakes are cooking.
    Remove from oven and top with fruit or powdered sugar.

    ~These are an easy brunch dish for a crowd.

    Topping Ideas:
    ~Fried apples and pecans
    ~Fresh peaches, blueberries or strawberries with a sprinkle of powdered sugar
    ~Sprinkle with powdered sugar and lemon zest and then sprinkle the juice of a lemon over it (my fav!)
    ~Bananas, coconut, pineapple and drizzled with chocolate sauce.
    ~Any fresh fruit and fresh whipped cream

    Perfect Batter

    1 C. Perfect Pancake Mix
    1 C. milk
    2 eggs


    Combine eggs and milk in shallow bowl, Add pancake mix and stir till combined.

    Use this batter to make Monte Cristo Sandwiches, onion rings, or even fried fish.

    ~For Monte Cristo Sandwiches, make sandwiches using your favorite bread, meat and cheese combo (ham and cheddar, turkey and swiss, roast beef and provolone) and topping (mayo, mustard). Dip sandwiches and cook on preheated griddle till browned on both sides and cheese starts to melt.

    Monte Cristos are traditionally topped with a light sprinkle of powdered sugar
    and a dollop of jelly.

    Thats alot of water! Like the eagles these are some of the first beavers to make a return to the area. Michigan seems to be making great progress in reguards to the environment and natural habitat. They're plans in the next couple of years to remove the 6th st damn in grand rapids which right now is preventing the sturgeons from their natural spawning run. Its exciting to see.
