Hearty Multigrain Pancakes
In a large bowl, stir together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, cornmeal, oats, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, beat together the milk, oil, vanilla and egg. Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture, stirring just until moistened. (Batter will be lumpy. If you like, add a stir-in ingredient.)Advertisement
For each standard-size pancake, pour about 1/4 cup batter onto a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet, spreading batter if necessary. For dollar-size pancakes, use about 1 tablespoon batter. Cook over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until pancakes are golden brown, turning to second side when pancakes have bubbly surfaces and edges are slightly dry. Serve warm with syrup, if you like.
Prepare recipe as directed, except substitute 1 3/4 cups buttermilk for the milk, reduce baking powder to 1 teaspoon and add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda.Nutrition Analysis: 264 calories, 8 g protein, 38 g carbohydrate, 9 g total fat (1 g sat. fat), 34 mg cholesterol, 2 g fiber, 8 g sugar, 2% Vitamin A, 1% Vitamin C, 352 mg sodium, 16% calcium, 10% iron
