My previous posts provided recipes for apple and peach pie fillings and apple syrup, and I had suggested that these make great gifts with a homemade pancake mix.  Pancake mix is a great way to utilize food storage items, especially nonfat dry milk that is sometimes tricky to rotate.  Here is a great recipe that I found on the American Profile website that I think would work beautifully for this gift.  You can mix these up in October, store them in airtight containers in your freezer, and have them ready for Christmas gifts or Christmas morning breakfast. Enjoy!


By Theresa Slemp

4 cups old-fashioned oats
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup instant nonfat dry milk
3 tablespoons baking powder
2 tablespoons cinnamon
5 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar


1. Mix all ingredients together well. Store in a sealed gallon-size plastic storage bag or airtight container.
2. To make pancakes, beat 2 large eggs in a large bowl. Gradually beat in 1/3 cup canola oil. Alternately add 2 cups pancake mix and 1 cup water to mixture. Blend well. Preheat and oil griddle. Pour 1/3 cup batter per pancake onto griddle. Cook until bubbles form around edges, turn and continue to cook until done.
