if you have whole wheat berries in your pantry for any reason, you must have this recipe! it uses the two bulk components of my food storage, wheat and powdered milk. the beauty of it is that the blender does the grinding for you, you do not need to grind the flour! we love these with homemade peach sauce. who knew food storage could be so delicious?
food storage pancakes
recipe from the set for life cookbook
1 1/4 cups warm water
1 cup whole wheat berries
1/4 cup powdered milk
2 Tablespoons oil
1 Tablespoon sugar or honey
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon baking powder
In blender, mix water, wheat and dry milk on high for 5 minutes. Add egg, oil, honey and salt. Blend 20 seconds. Add baking powder. Pulse 3 times, just to mix. Mixture should foam up and get light. Cook immediately on hot griddle.
*try as jamcakes, my recipe to follow. i use aluminum-free baking powder (Rumford, buy at walmart.) it yields a much better flavor in everything. milk may substitute for water, omit dried milk. or keep it and wha-pow! your kids with calcium. if you have a bosch or vitamix blender, 3 minutes should be just right. i throw a couple Tbsp. flaxseed in the blender when i remember to.
*fabulous topped with fresh peach pancake topping.
